Bugatti Type 35B exterior

Automobiles from 1920 > Extra about cars in 1920
 

The exquisitely detailed but stark bodywork of the Type 35 is all about function, but with a finesse that makes one recall Ettore Bugatti’s supposed remark that the rival Bentley was a high-speed truck. Arguably the four-cylinder Type 37 is even more pleasing, but it lacks the gutsy muscle of the Type 35. Bugatti had a sure eye for a car’s lines, a gift he passed on to his son Jean, who styled future models.
