With Bugatti’s numerous impressive and unique designs released over the past 100-plus years, it makes sense that the company’s founder, Ettore Bugatti, was the son of Carlo Bugatti, an acclaimed artist, designer, and silversmith.
Ettore Bugatti showed the first of his cars during the year 1901.
Bugatti’s first car, the Type-2, was developed with the help of the Gulinelli brothers and ended up winning an award from the French Automobile Club. The project to further develop and release the Type-2 model was halted and then sold to another company due to the death of one of the Gulinelli brothers.
After Bugatti became head of technology at De Dietrich, Ettore developed the Type 5 model in 1903 as an upgraded version of the previous Gulinelli model. De Dietrich ended up terminating Bugatti’s contract due to their disapproval of Ettore’s focus on developing racing cars overproduction vehicles.
Following Ettore’s development of a four-cylinder engine vehicle for Mathis in 1905, Bugatti moved on to independently developing another 50 horsepower car, which he sold to the Deutz gas engine factory in 1907.
Jean Bugatti served to succeed his father, Ettore, as the head of Bugatti in 1909. Through Jean’s efforts, legendary Bugatti models such as the Type 57S Atlantic were created. Other impressive accolades that Jean Bugatti held include his leadership of Bugatti’s racing team, where he often carried out tests himself.
1909 led to the founding of Bugatti’s Molsheim factory, where a loan for ten cars and five airplane engines was carried out. From there, Bugatti never looked back.
Notable Bugatti Models
There are so many unique and special Bugatti models that have been released over the past 100 years that it’s hard to pick just a couple.
Released in 1924, the Bugatti Type 35 stands as one of the most successful race cars in automobile history. Winning over 2,000 races, it’s no surprise that this Grand Prix icon sold for three million dollars in a 2017 auction.
While Bugatti has been dominating racing in style since the early parts of the 20th century, more modern models such as the Bugatti Veyron have drawn mass amounts of interest from the public. Standing as one of the fastest cars on the market, the added luxury elements of the Bugatti Veyron makes the model one of the finest automobiles on the market.
