Between 1931 and 1935 the Bugatti works in Molsheim have built only 40 examples of the T51 Grand Prix as well in aspirated (T51) as in supercharged (T51A) version. It was the evolution of the famous T35 Grand Prix but with, as a main evolution for this T51, for its time ultra modern technology of twin overhead cams. The T51A as presented here is such a supercharged model developping 160 HP from the twin overhead 8-cilinder 2,3 liter engine. Authentic T51's are extremely rare on the classic competion carmarket. Most of these genuine T51 have very interesting competition history linked to racing heroes such as Achille Varzi, Louis Chiron, Louis Trintignant, René Dreyfus, etc... Because this racing icon is almost unobtainable for the classic competition enthusiast, here and there a few specialised classic car companies started to build reconstruction T51 Grand Prix models. This Bugatti featured here is also such a recreation built by the well known "Pur Sang" workshops in Argentina. Where at the beginning of their activity these reconstruction Bugatti's were considered by the enthusiasts as questionable, nowadays they are regarded as excellent quality alternatives. The precision of manufacturing is of such a level that parts are interchangable on authentic Bugatti cars, which explains a lot. Everybody in our classic car workshop was indeed very impressed with the quality engineering of this T51A. Obviously her looks are not only gorgeously exciting, but the driving sensations are a heavenly delicious sensation! Fast she is for sure, also superbly well balanced, man and machine feeling 'one'. No gaps, 'clonks', hesitation, inaccuracies. An easy to handle fantastic competition car. Yes, you have noticed it rightly: I am absolutely in love with this T51A. Come and admire her in my classic car showroom & workshop near Brussels and I am sure you also will be impressed! For sale at a fraction of the price of the real thing. Just ask.
