The Bugatti Racer
The last of the Vintage Classic Racing Cars, the Bugatti, was first produced in 1933 and went on in 1934 and 1935 to win many International Grand Prix events. The 3.3 Litre car lapped the famous Brooklands circut at 138.34 mph, and was recorded at San Sabastian at a speed of 168 mph.
In 1937 this model, driven by Wimille, lapped the 12 mile road circuit at Montihery for 162 miles at over 1622 miles at over 92 mph to establish a new record.. He won a prize of 4000,000 francs for this feat. Eventually Mercedes Benz and Auto Union with their new breed of car marked the end of an era for Bugatti.
