Subtitle The Man and the Marque
A rigorously researched and definitive book - the first major re-appraisal of artist engineer Ettore Bugatti and his extraordinary cars to appear since 1963. He built only 7,800 cars between 1910 and 1939, but these are much sought-after today. This book charts the beginnings of the famous marque, the cars that brought it fame from the exquisite Type 35 to the massive Royale, only six of which were ever built, and chronicles the make's revival which began in Italy in 1988. Comprehensively illustrated with over 300 photographs, this book is a unique source of reference and winner of the Society of Automotive Historians' Cugnot Award.
