1925 Bugatti Type 35C Grand Prix
After Ettore Bugatti’s success with the Type 23 Brescia, he revealed the next generation of Bugatti voiturette racers at the 1924 ACF Grand Prix. The new Type 35 built upon the Brescia’s lightweight design and improved the overall control, braking, and engine output. The all-in-one wheel rims, spokes, and brake drums were cast as a single piece of aluminum that could be replaced with only one nut. The vertical design of the spokes allowed air to circulate and cool the braking system, an innovation found on a large number of Bugattis of the day.
