Under the hood Bugatti 35B

Automobiles from 1920 > Extra about cars in 1920

Blistering performance-even by today’s standards-is a given with the supercharged Bugatti. Helping to achieve this is the overhead-camshaft configuration and the use of three valves (two inlet and one exhaust) per cylinder. Free-revving reliability is assured by the use of roller-bearing and ball-bearing mains for the five-bearing crankshaft; the big ends also use roller bearings. Power is transmitted via a multi-plate clutch running in oil.
