Bugatti's are more than just cars as they have moved in the world of art.
The company was founded in 1909 by the Italian Ettore Bugatti in Molsheim, France.
Early Bugatti's had many racing success including the Type35 which is estimated to have had
over 2,000wins. Bugatti Type35 won the Targa Florio for 5years straight from 1925 to 1929.
Another famous Bugatti is the Type 57C, the tank car, which Veyron and Wimille won Le Mans in 1939
with one one car and very meager resources. The current Veyron is named after the racer, Veyron.
For its street car the Type 57SC Atlantic is considered by some including Ralph Lauren to be the
epitome of pre-war cars.
Throughout the company's leadership under Ettore the company made about 7,000 cars of
which it is estimated that about 2000 have survived. The company did not survived the
second world war well ( the factory was destroyed) and Ettore died in 1947.
