THE ENDURING LEGEND OF BUGATTI
If you are thinking about a Bugatti, the question is ‘which Bugatti, exactly?’. Because, confusingly, there are three very different versions of the marque. The first, whose products are much coveted by vintage collectors, made its name during the 1920s and 1930s with a range of beautifully-crafted light and nimble sports and racing cars, usually finished in a characteristic brilliant blue and sporting a distinctive upside-down horseshoe radiator grille. The Type 35 and its successors the 37 and 39 are, in fact, renowned as being the most successful racing cars of all time; they are said to have more than 2,000 wins to their name. Meanwhile, the marque also built many handsome road cars including the stunning Type 57SC Atlantic coupés, whose many fans include wealthy car collector and fashion mogul Ralph Lauren. But sadly, the first version of the Bugatti marque petered out shortly after WWII with the death of its founder.
The name, however, carried too much of a legendary status to be allowed to vanish. In the mid-1980s, an Italian entrepreneur bought the brand and launched a new supercar, the EB110. Again usually made in bright blue, this fast and technically advanced vehicle, famously owned by F1 driver Michael Schumacher, wasn’t to become a big seller despite its undeniably brutish good looks and astonishing performance. The firm lasted until the mid-1990s when a combination of economic factors and over-ambitious business deals saw it close its doors once more.
And, then, once again, in 1998, Bugatti was back. This time the brand was purchased by the rather more financially solvent Volkswagen group, who released a series of attention-grabbing concept cars before starting production of the rightly legendary Veyron 16.4 in 2001. With its eight-litre, 16-cylinder engine sporting no fewer than four turbochargers and producing more than 1,000 horsepower, the Veyron was to become the world’s fastest production car with a record of 267.7mph. It has picked up a host of awards from the world’s press and is without a doubt one of the greatest cars ever built. There have been several versions, including a targa-topped convertible and the frankly astounding World Record Edition which is even faster then the standard model.
The last of the Veyrons was sold in 2015 – however, Volkswagen have recently announced its successor, the Chiron, which is already on sale, and will start being delivered to lucky customers at around the end of 2016. And yes, it is said to be even faster than the Veyron…

It’s that time of year when we look back on the past 12 months and take stock. With that in mind we invited Dr. Vincent van der Vinne, author of ‘Investing in Cars,’ to look back on what has been an exciting year for auction houses around the world.
Having sold some 188 cars grossing $152.6 million between them during Monterey Week in mid August, and no doubt downed a celebratory flute or two of Californian spumante, the Bonhams and RM Sotheby’s teams packed their bags for Britain and beyond.
