Luxury car manufacturer founded in 1910 by Italian born, french domiciled Ettore Bugatti. A number of race victories in the early twentieth century secured the reputation as sound cars, while obscure road models such as the ultra-heavy Royalé gave it an edge over its competitiors. A number of attempts at revival, icluding the ugly-ass car that was the EB110 (the name means "Ettore Bugatti is 110" - it was luanched on what would have been his 110th birthday)
The type 35 of 1924 is still regarded as the most beautiful sports car of all time by many. All Bugatti's feature a horse-shoe radiator.
The SS variant of the EB110 (Joint with the Jaguar XJ220) and the Royalé were both the world's fastest road cars in their time, as well as others.
In september 1998 VolksWagen took over the Name and are producing the "Veyron". A car with a predicted top speed of 252mph (which should make it 2mph faster than the world's current fastest road car, and 12mph ahead of the McLaren F1)
