An insight into the design, engineering, maintenance and operation of Bugatti's iconic pre war grand prix car
The Bugatti Type 35 is one of the most successful racing cars ever made. With its excellent chassis, engine and braking, and classic styling, it has become an icon of 1930s motor racing. The car brought new standards of workmanship and finish to racing, and was the first grand prix car to be offered for sale to privateer competitors. The Type 35 and its variants won the challenging Targa Florio road race for five consecutive years, in addition to 17 grands prix victories between 1924 and 1931.
This manual takes in in-depth look at the design, engineering, operation and restoration of the Type 35, and details the story of the cars, the variants produced and the anatomy of the car, with input from engineers, owners and drivers involved with the cars today. A fascinating insight into a car that still wins historic races more than 90 years on from its grand prix debut.
