The Grand Prix Bugatti has a strong claim to a book all of its own, with its enviable record of racing successes, its superb craftsmanship and, for the more mechanically minded, the great variety of its ingenious design features unique to the creations of the great artist designer, Ettore Bugatti.

This book, originally written in 1968, is devoted to the racing Types 35, 37, 43 and 51, in their various forms, and describes their anatomy in detail and their racing achievements. A schedule of individual models, in chassis number order, gives type number, factory date, brief history and where known, the owner (as of 1968); the appendices include tabulated specifications of the types.

Bugatti owners will also find much practical information to help them maintain their historic cars.
