BUGATTI TYPE 57

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

Five mains, camshaft drive taken from the rear, wet-sump lubrication, single-disc clutch and ball change for a four-speed unit 'box (crash, of course). Suspension and chassis uncompromisingly vintage, but rubber-mounted engines '37, and hydraulic brakes from '38. A splendid, 95mph grand routière even in standard form.
