Who is Ettore Bugatti ? What is Bugatti known for ?
Bugatti, the most famous serial manufacturer of the world’s most expensive supersports cars, has managed to become an indelible brand, although it has been producing its models intermittently for 100 years.
Although most of us have not seen the models that Bugatti offers throughout its history, we have learned a lot about how magnificent automobiles have been produced. Carlo Bugatti was the largest of the Bugatti, a family of artists from Milan. Carlo Bugatti was both a sculptor and a silversmith. Rembrandt Bugatti, one of Carlo Bugatti’s two sons, was drawing and sculpting animal figures. Mr. Carlo’s other son, Ettore, decided to enter motor sports because he did not like art very much.
Ettore Bugatti, which was prone to automobile design, started to develop its products under the Bugatti sign in 1909. Ettore Bugatti attracted the attention of Peugeot officials with the overhead camshaft engine it developed after introducing its first car at the Paris Motor Show in 1910. The French asked the Italian designer to develop a small car. After Ettore Bugatti designed the Babe model for Peugeot, he settled in Molsheim in France and founded Bugatti Automobili SpA there. Ettore Bugatti developed the Type 13 specifically to compete in motorsports. In 1922, many brands were using sequential 8-cylinder engines in motor sports. Bugatti has also developed a power unit that meets these standards. However, the biggest difference of this engine from the others was that it had a top camshaft. When Ettore Bugatti added a compressor to the OHC type engine, he made a name for himself by constantly forcing the summit in the French Grand Prix, which he participated in 1924. Between 1924 and 1927, Bugatti were the winners of more than 2,000 races. Ettore Bugatti has decided to use the elongated louver design with the red Bugatti logo on the top of all its cars. In 1929
When the Royale was started to be produced, the biggest innovation of the 4-cylinder engine with compressor used in this vehicle was its double overhead camshaft.
The Type 57 Atlantic was designed in 1936, and the same year, engines for trains used in World War II began to be produced. In 1937, Bugatti 51 A broke a record, reaching 210 km / h on the Paris Montreal circuit. While the Bugatti Type 57 managed to become one of the best cars of the time, Jean Bugatti had an accident and died while testing this vehicle. Ettore Bugatti, already aging, passed away in 1947 after the death of his son. Deprived of its founder, Bugatti closed in 1951 in the face of the continued negative effects of World War II. The impoverished Bugatti family sold their goods and collectible cars for nothing. However, it started production again in 1956 when a few classic Bugatti were sold to high values. The new model was the Type 101, and production stopped again until the mid-1980s because this vehicle was not successful enough.
After the automobile industry started to develop, Romano Artioli bought all the shares of Bugatti. The new Bugatti was designed by Marcello Gandini. The new Bugatti is named EB 110. This vehicle, which started production in 1991, could not reach the sales it wanted as a result of the high price tag and Bugatti’s customer choice, and it was bought by VW in 1998 when the production was completed. VW began producing the Veyron 16.4 in 2005 after various concepts. The Veyron 16.4 continues to be produced in Molsheim, France, where the brand started 100 years ago.
