BUGATTI TYPE 50

Roadster, 2-door saloon, coupé, cabriolet.

Chassis is Type 46 with same three-speed transaxle, but on this one you have two upstairs camshafts, vertical shaft drive for the dry-sump system's twin pumps, and further bevels driving the (standard) blower. Ride control dampers also provided. Appearance usually exotic as befits a car of this complexity: 200bhp spells a useful 110mph. Alloy wheels fitted.
