1932 Bugatti Type 55 Super Sport
The Type 55 was the ultimate sports car, fitted with the same twin-cam supercharged engine used on the Type 51 Grand Prix car and cloaked in a sleek racing body accented by the refined touches of a luxury coach. Jean Bugatti’s love for sporty, luxurious lines is manifest in this Grand Prix-style coachwork, which is characterized by long, sweeping fenders, Grand Prix wheels with integrated drum brakes, a rounded tail, and a spare wheel mounted on the rear. This car looked and ran like a race car and set a standard for sports models of the day.
