Bugatti Type 101


Bugatti Type 101

In order to restart Bugatti, a new car was needed for the 1950s. The result was the 1951 Type 101. An evolution of the Type 57, it is considered by many to be the last true Bugatti car, with just six produced through 1956. Powered by the 3.3 L (3257 cc/198 in³) straight-8 from the Type 57, it was a convertible luxury car.

In 1965, Ghia built a Virgil Exner-designed Bugatti body for the last remaining Type 101 chassis as an attempt to revive the marque. It was exhibited at the Turin Motor Show, but financing could not be arranged and production plans were scrapped. Exner owned the car for many years, and it has lately appeared in public at the Pebble Beach Concours D'Elegance.
