Purchasing a used bugatti for sale can still be quite an expensive experience. But the French automaker is now offering a certified pre-owned program
Purchasing a used bugatti for sale can still be quite an expensive experience. But the French automaker is now offering a certified pre-owned program for one-percenters looking to save on maintenance costs.
The program’s warranty matches that of the new cars, and it will be honored worldwide. The company also doesn’t require proof of finance from potential buyers, allowing salespeople to sniff out those with genuine intent.
One of the most important pre-war racing cars ever to be offered for sale, this quintessential French Grand Prix two-seater was driven by Robert Benoist at the 1935 Montlhery event. The incredibly rare car embodies a number of original Bugatti components, including the unique 4.9-litre straight-eight cylinder twin-overhead camshaft power unit, originally used by Count Stanislas Czaykowski to smash the World 1 Hour speed record in Berlin in 1933.
This timewarp legend owes its existence to decades of dedicated research, enthusiasm and assiduous component collecting by its present vendor. As such, every mechanical element within the car – apart from minor peripherals – is wholly original and made in period at Molsheim. The chassis frame carries the unique serial number ‘No 2’, which may well have been used in the team’s practice car at Montlhery that weekend.
When it comes to historic competition cars, the Type 35 is one of the most significant open-wheelers in history. These small, sleek machines dominated pre-war racing, with many collecting a dizzying number of Grand Prix victories in addition to major hill climb and circuit races.
The example offered here, chassis 4871, is a supercharged 35C model. The Roots-type compressor boosted the car’s 1991-cc straight-eight engine to a whopping 150 horsepower.
While it scored high on provenance, with a clear and unbroken ownership chain and loving use throughout its lifetime by Bugatti devotees, it missed out on the highest scores for type desirability and mechanics. This is because the original engine has been moved from this chassis, and a new replacement would cut its value considerably.
The Type 57 is perhaps the most famous of all Bugatti cars. Its sweeping curves, elegant exterior design, and impressive performance made it one of the world’s most sought-after sports cars during its production. It was only built for a few years but holds a special place in automotive history and folklore.
Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of company founder Ettore, penned most of the Type 57’s body designs. It was available in a standard version and a lowered version known as the 57S or 57SC. The 57SC was equipped with a Roots-type supercharger to increase horsepower from 175 to 200, an incredible speed for the time.
The first 57SC Gangloff was built for British barrister and tennis star Richard Pope in 1938. It passed through several collections until fashion designer Ralph Lauren purchased it in 1988. He sent it to Paul Russell for a full restoration.
In 1926, founder and namesake Ettore Bugatti built a go-kart for his four-year-old son Roland. The car was so fast it became known as the Bugatti Baby. Nearly 100 years later, the company has brought it back with a new carbon fiber version. Only customers of the W16 Mistral can buy one of these mini-Bugattis, and it will set you back more than $5 million.
This tank has a unique hinge system on its rear transmission-rear hull plate that is more robust than the factory version. There are reports that Chinese T-34-85s and SU-76s were upgraded with this system during the Korean War, but this is doubtful. Moreover, tanks from the women’s battalion had three-digit tactical markings, which makes it very unlikely that ‘Type 58’ tanks were ever fielded.
The Bugatti Chiron is an incredible hypercar that combines luxury and performance. Its unique design and innovative features make it an excellent choice for anyone looking for a stylish and sophisticated car. It can also be used for a variety of driving experiences, including road and track racing.
The Profilee is the most bespoke of all Chiron models, and is a one-of-a-kind vehicle. Its sweeping tail creates high-tech thermodynamic air flow management, and its downforce is greater than any other Chiron. This stunning car can reach 100 km/h in 2.3 seconds, and 200 km/h in 5.5 seconds.
The Chiron is named after the mythological centaur Chiron, who was half man and half horse. This legendary creature was a healer and teacher, but had a tendency to get involved in fights.
