BUGATTI TYPE 46/46S

Tourer, saloon, coupé, cabriolet, limousine, numerous specials.

Scaled-down Royale with 120bhp on tap from that splendidly-sculptured engine: coil ignition, twin oil pumps, and twin electric pumps feeding a Smith carburettor. Usually on alloy wheels: brake drums of 16ins diameter, are integral. The Royale's three-speed transaxle rules this one out for the home mechanic, but there's a quiet 90mph. Rare 46S is supercharged.
