Bugatti – Bienvenue

Ettore Bugatti worked for de Dietrich and Deutz, among others. In 1910 he founded his own company in Molsheim in Alsace, which at that time belonged to the German Empire.

The company was known for excellent engineering and high-class vehicles. But above all through light and fast sports cars and in racing.

Ettore Bugatti – Le Patron

Ettore Bugatti comes from an old family of artists in Milan. On January 1, 1910, he founded the “Automobiles Ettore Bugatti” with his partner Ernest Friderich. Ettore was a horse lover and bred thoroughbreds himself (French: pure sang, which was also found in the names of his vehicles). During Ettore’s lifetime, over 7900 vehicles were built, of which around 1/4 still exist today.

Bugatti Royale
Type 41

The Bugatti Type 41, also Bugatti Royale, reached a top speed of 200 km / h thanks to its eight-cylinder in-line engine with up to 300 hp. Due to the global economic crisis, the car was not a commercial success. Only six chassis were built in nine years, two of which could not be sold.

However, the engines were successfully reused in Bugatti railcars for the French railways.

Louis Chiron

The racing career of the Monaco racing driver Alexandre Louis Chiron spanned 30 years. He contested his first races with a private Bugatti in 1926 and was already able to celebrate his first successes in smaller races and mountain races in 1927 and 1928. In the late 1920s and early 1930s, he was the most successful racing driver.

Zero-400-zero
Bugatti Chiron

The world record in the 1500 hp Bugatti Chiron was set by Juan Pablo Montoya:

Montoya: “It is absolutely impressive how stable and confident the Chiron is. Acceleration and braking behavior are simply unbelievable. ”The Chiron required a distance of only 3.112 kilometers for 0-400-0 km / h. 32.6 s for the sprint to 400, 9.3 s for braking.

Type 35 BLUEPRINT

Bugatti cars have been exceptionally successful in races, with thousands of wins in just a few decades. The Bugatti Type 35, released in 1924, is the most successful racing car in motorsport history with over 2000 victories.

Type 32 tank
Grand Prix de Tours

The T32 Tank drove only one race: the French Grand Prix in Tours in 1923. The race was held over 35 laps of 22.83 km (799.05 km). Ernes Friderich reached 3rd place, but 25 minutes behind.

The three other “tanks” failed in the race. Bugatti’s considerations were based on experience from aviation, so the T32 largely got the profile of a wing.

Type 13 BLUEPRINT

The production of the Type 13 started with the foundation of the company in 1910 and continued until 1920. A total of 435 vehicles were manufactured. The Type 13 became known as “pur-sang” (“whole blood”).

Bugatti Atlantic
Type 57

Jean Bugatti (1909-1939), the son of the company’s founder Ettore, was officially responsible for the “Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic” project. He also contributed essential design elements that were implemented together with the illustrator Joseph Walter.

The Type 57 was produced from 1934 to 1940.

Premier Grand Prix
de Monaco – 1929

It is April 14, 1929. We are in Monte Carlo and are witnessing the first Monaco Grand Prix. The focus is on the legendary Bugattis, which are considered favorites in this race.

We stand excited on the road and wait for the first car to cross the curve. The narrow and winding streets make overtaking difficult or impossible. It is an exciting race in which the Bugattis are in the lead. We look forward to 100 laps and almost 4 hours until the British driver William Grover-Williams is the first to cross the finish line in a Bugatti T35B. In second place was a Bugatti T35C. And in third place Rudolf Caracciola on a Mercedes SSK.

Du Mans 1937

The Bugatti works team came to the 24-hour race with two Bugatti Type 57Gs with an aerodynamic body. Rober Labric and Pierre Veyron in the first car. Jean-Pierre Wimille and Robert Benoist drove in the second car.

The favorite for the overall victory was the Alfa Romeo 8C from Raymond Sommer. After Sommer had to give up in a leading position with engine damage, Wimille and Benoist drove one record lap after the other and a safe victory. In the end, they broke all existing records and gave Bugatti their first overall win at Le Mans.

Bugatti EB 110 SS
Le Mans 1994

Bugatti decided to convert the EB 110 SS into a racing sports super sports car. Two vehicles were created – an SC GTS-1 for the IMSA GT series and an LM for Le Mans.

The blue Bugatti EB110 SS with 3.5L Turbo V12 failed at le Mans after 230 laps.

Bugatti Type 251
Grand Prix de Reims

Roland Bugatti (born 1922) was Jean’s younger brother. After the Second World War, he was the owner of Bugatti and made several attempts to revive the legendary brand, but was unsuccessful.

The Bugatti Type 251 was the last attempt to gain a foothold in Formula 1 again. The car was developed by Gioacchino Colombo (Ferrari). With an output of 250 hp (184 kW), the car reached a top speed of 260 km / h. Maurice Trintignant took the vehicle to the French Grand Prix in Reims on June 18, 1956, but was unable to achieve any racing success.

Was it heroes or madmen who went to Sicily every year to hunt for fame and glory? “Lock up children and pets!” Was the vital call in the days of the legendary “Targa Florio”. The first Targa Florio started as early as 1906. It was created by Vincenzo Florio.

In the 1920s, the Targa Florio (108 km long at that time) was the most important sports car race. Le Mans and the Mille Miglia were not yet established at the time. A Bugatti Type 35 won an incredible five times (1925 – 1929).

Bugatti EB 110

The Bugatti EB 110 was the first vehicle of the Italian company Bugatti Automobili SpA, founded in 1989 in Campogalliano. Romano Artioli had acquired the rights to “Bugatti” in 1987. Announced as the most technically advanced super sports car ever, the EB 110 was introduced on September 15, 1991, Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday, and produced from 1992.

In 1995 the company had to file for bankruptcy due to the difficult economic situation. Open honor? “Lock up children and pets!” Was the vital call in the days of the legendary “Targa Florio”. The first Targa Florio started as early as 1906. It was created by Vincenzo Florio.

Du Mans 1939

The 24-hour race in 1939 was that of Le Mans before the outbreak of World War II. The 3.3-liter 57C tank was officially reported by the Le Mans winner in 1937 Jean-Pierre Wimille, but behind it was the Molsheim plant with all of its logistics.
