1928 Bugatti Type 43/44 Figoni
This car was originally a Type 43 racecar largely based on the Type 35. Type 43s were among the first supercharged models to be offered to amateur drivers. The light chassis’ short length, narrow wheelbase, and supercharged engine made it suitable for a variety of races and long-distance touring. After an unsuccessful race in 1929, this car was stripped of its factory body and rebodied by Joseph Figoni. The open body features sweeping fenders with integral running boards and the signature Bugatti styled two-tone paint. It was equipped with a Type 44 engine in 1959.
