BUGATTI TYPE 55

Roadster.

Roadgoing T51 derivative with monobloc cylinders, 16 valves, and 135bhp in standard form with separately lubricated blower, mechanical fuel pump, separate four-speed 'box, cable brakes, cast alloy wheels, and the inevitable reversed quarter elliptics at the back. A few special bodies, but why bother, when the regulation wear is Jean Bugatti's ageless roadster, the aesthetic peal of Molsheim? 112mph and 0-50 in 9secs.
