Ettore was, however, already at the age of 14 bound for the mechanical, when he came across a tricycle (1895).
Bugatti Gullinelle 1900. Ref. 1
At the age of 19, he came in contact to the tricycle manufacturer, because of the improvements and the successes at competitions, which showed that his constructions were good. He began selling his own constructions, as accessories. Gulinelle (1900) funded the development of a 4-cylinder car (picture). Ettore got the Medal for 1901 at Milano fair. DeDietrich.gif.

In conjunction with actual BeBe (Peugeot) lack this lamps. See below.
Under 3 years made Ettore a base model. 4 cyl, chain drive. It was sold as DeDietrich-Bugatti (picture).

However, he started with a modell and it was Type 16, which became equipped with a five liter engine. It was dedicated as a race car. This engine had he begun with already at Deutch, but perfected his design that was mounted in a car, 1912.

Bugatti Torpedo Type 38, 1927. Ref. 1. Detail. This model was a follower of Type 30. It had the developed straight 8 cylinder engine of well-known deesign from 35A. Some of these cars were fitted with supercharger from the type 37A. A total of  385 copies were built 1926 and 1927.

Bugatti. Coach, Type 101, 1951. Ref. 1. 8 cyl. 3257.cc, 140 cv, 160 km/h. After the war, many automakers tried to get going again. But the times were new and the buyers were not interested to spend money on old designs with a new skin. This was the Bugatti's problems. There were no new ideas. Bugatti took what they had. (cont. next picture)
 Bugatti. Coach, Type 101, 1951. Ref. 1
Bugatti. Coach, Type 101, 1951. Ref. 1. Detail. In this case the Type 57 in Basic. There was poor economy and hence no redesigns. Jean Bugatti had died 1939 and 1947  Ettore died. The firm now had no strong leader. Left behind were Roland Bugatti and a few friends to Jean who was trying to get started. However, had to fight with great difficulty.  (cont. next picture)

Bugatti. Coach Type 101. 1952. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 3257 cc, 140 cv, 160 km/h. Roland took the final decision to use Type 57 chassis with new bodywork, which was given the type number Type 101. They had not the power to make the design on these, but gathered ideas from 1936 and 1947 (see below). It was these saloon cars and a cabiolet. Only 6 Type 101 was built. This was the beginning of this swan song for Bugatti.

Cars important in Bugatti's history that I didn't saw at the Museum. Instead, pictures from Sinsheim at my visit 2018.
Bugatti Typ 57. 1938, 135 hk, 3257 cc. Ref. 1
Bugatti Typ 57. 1938, 135 hk, 3257 cc. och 8 cyl. Ref. 1.The cars were change for the use, during the last part of the 1930 's. Likewise, the Bugatti that came with the basic model 57, was equally useful at the time as a race car and then a tour in Bolognerskogen. The owner did some simple changes and styled it to a touring car. The style of this type was developed by Jean, who at that time did not have long rime left to live, when the test run with a Bugatti Tank ended up with a severe crash.
Bugatti Typ 30, 1926 75 hk 1991 cc. Ref.1
Bugatti Typ 30, 1926, 75 hk 1991 cc och 8 cyl. Also known as Black Bess. Ref. 1. The first 8 cylinder engines came in 1922. No one had anything like this in the class. The cars were extremely successful and won almost everything. Alfa Romeo and the other Italians were way behind. In addition, it had the advantage that it was private drivers who bought the model which made Bugatti got good time for development. Some special Buggatis for factory drivers were not able. All were equal.
Bugatti Typ 37 1926, 100 hk, 1496 cc. Ref. 1
Bugatti Typ 37 1926, 100 hk, 1496 cc, 4 cyl. Ref. 1. To be able to sell a less expensive car Bugatti took the 8th cyl. and contracted it by 2 cyl and then had a Type 37, but basically the same car as 30. But perhaps became it a little slow for many winners. 1930 developed it to Type 35 by adding a compressor which gave the car the 125 ps. Bugatti's cars were never over trimmed and kept in most cases all competitions, which it sometimes for poor owners was appreciated.

Another Bugatti important in the history. Is not shown, is this car from Bianco-Rosso museet. found at my visit 2000.
Bugatti T57 S Spider 1936. Ref. 1
Bugatti T57 S Spider 1936.
8 cyl, 3257 cc, 170 hk. The car where Jean Bugatti was trying to renew construction. He had built an individual front suspension with hydraulic brakes. Unfortunately Daddy Ettore came  home, he worked with Railbuses to the French Government in Paris, and saw "the scandal". Inquisition and changes, what was left was the modernized cooler.

Bugatti. Coach, Type 73A, 1947. Ref. 1
Bugatti. Coach, Type 73A, 1947. 4 cyl, 1480 cc, 160 km/h. August 11 1939 drove Jean out of the way and died, and the November year 1samma broke the WWII. Because of this it was decided Ettore to move to Bordeaux. An important thing in Bugatti's history came with and it was his first car  Type 10. Here it was forgotten and sold after the war to General William Lyon in California. Can today be seen at Lyon Air museum. Picture can be found in this blog. General William is 2018 95 years old.
Ettore who from beginning was an Italian had got his business confiscated after the war, 1945. He got his French citizenship in 1946 and was nowworking with the legal process to get back his property. It was hard on him and he died in August 1947. The Type 73 would be presented. Many ideas from Jean had been used on this body. Among other things, that the door went into a piece of the roof.

The cars were change for the use, during the last part of the 1930 's. Likewise, the Bugatti that came with the basic model 57, was equally useful at the time as a race car and then a tour in Bolognerskogen.
 The owner did some simple changes and styled it to a touring car. The style of this type was developed by Jean, who at that time did not have long rime left to live, when the test run with a Bugatti Tank ended up with a severe crash. 1939.

 Bugatti. Berline, Type 49, 1933. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 3257, 90 cv, 1933. This car was the result of an evolution from the Type 44. Jean had taken over management of the factory in Molsheim, which he built out. The engine was enlarged to 3.3 liters, the rims were made of aluminium with bromine drums within the rim. The chassis was sent to Ganglof in Switzerland to have their bodies. Of the Type 49 was built 470th.

Bugatti. Berline, Type 46, 1933. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 5350 cc, 90 cv, 150 km/h. Ch. nr. 46523, valued at 650000. Sold to J. Shakespeare museum United States 1950. This car was one of the 30 cars that were included in Fritz Schlumpf repurchase from J.W. Shakespeare 1964. This Berline also called Saloon built at Million-Gui in Levallois. (cont next picture)
Bugatti. Berline, Type 46, 1933. Ref. 1.
Bugatti. Berline, Type 46, 1933. Ref. 1. Detalj. The whole bodywork was built in aluminum. The first was delivered to the retailer in Switzerland Willy Escher and were shown at the Geneva Motor Show in 1932. With that he started in MonteCarlo Rally 1932 and took fourth place, which is notable for a 4 door saloon.
 Bugatti Berline, Type 46S, 1934. Ref. 1
Bugatti Berline, Type 46S, 1934. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 5350, 160 cv, 160 km/h. The car was sold in 1932 to a leather manufacturer. Got a new body 1939  and sold to a businessman in Algeria. He had a firm in Annonay build existing body. 1940 were delivered and stored in Marseille. There was it forgotten till a Bugatti interested found in the warehouse department store 1960. It had only been running 400 km and was thus practically new. Note the difference in the year. How it is explained, I don't know. My "Bugatti Bible" specifies the 1932 for the year.
 Bugatti. Limousine, Type 46, 1930. Ref. 1.
 Bugatti. Limousine, Type 46, 1930. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 5350 cc, 140 cv, 140 km/h. Many Bugatti cars ended up pretty soon with collectors. First owner maybe ran very short distance. This, however, is one that Louis Jacqes drove and used the car until 1956. With 400000 km on the meter, it turns out that a well-run Bugatti can run in many years. 1956 had the owner bought a Citroen and decided to return the Bugattin to the factory. It didn't, however, his little daughter as she spent last night in the back seat.
Bugatti. Berline, Type 49, 1934. Ref. 1
Bugatti. Berline, Type 49, 1934. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 3257 cc, 90 cv, 150 km/h. The strange thing with this car is the design of the doors. Rear doors could not be opened separately, but only if the front door was open. This was a system that came to Skoda in 2015. This meant that they did not need the Middle pole.
 Bugatti. Berline, Type 49, 1934. Ref. 1
 Bugatti. Berline, Type 49, 1934. Ref. 1. Detail. Just this Type 49 was sold in England, but was not popular when the pricing was higher than equivalent cars from Talbot and Lagonda. When comparing the info sheet text and its equivalent in Bugatti's book the National Car Museum, one finds that some car info are not treated equally. E.g. Saloon, Limousine, Berline is same type. Info authors prefer Berline and book translator Saloon.
Bugatti. Limousine, Type 49, 1934. Ref. 1.
 Bugatti. Limousine, Type 49, 1934. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 3257 cc, 160 cv, 160 km/h. With only 10000 km on the gauge became this Bugatti outmaneuvered by a Citroen traction by the owner. It was pallet up in the garage before it returned to the Bugatti factory. But .... Do you remember the taxis that were in the back seat had 2 folding chairs, these were already in  this 1934 car.
Bugatti. Coach, Type 64, 1939. Ref. 1
Bugatti. Coach, Type 64, 1939. Ref. 1. 8 cyl, 5432 cc, 180 cv, 180 km/h. It was on this model that Jean had mounted individual front springs. This was what history tells us in the back door with the help of Antoine Pichetto. This entire project was cancelled when Jean was killed when he test drove a Bugatti 57 Tank and Patron took over. WWII started just a few days later.
Bugatti. Cabriolet, Type 50 T, 1936. Ref. 1
Bugatti. Cabriolet, Type 50 T, 1936. Ref. 1. Ch. nr. 50160. 8 cyl. 4900 cc, 200 cv, 165 km/h. Bodywork in aluminium by Million-Gui and the body style of Pierre Michelin 1933. Valued at $500000. The surrounding brands began making it difficult for Bugatti that was the fastest. Bugatti engine had 3 valves/cyl, which did not allow using dohv camshafts.

Copy of the Bugatti Royale type 41 1932. Built in England to a film shoot in France. This, however, is fitted with a Chevrolet V8. Ref. 1

Bugatti Royale Typ 41 1932/33.
8 cyl, 12700 cc, 300 hk. This specimen is not one of the 6 Royale produced, instead a replica, built for a French film production. This is the same as if it is deemed to be an original. The engine was basically from, 1923, a Zeppelin engine, commissioned by the French State. This engine used the Bugatti later to their fast train (Sommer Museum in Helsingør have such motor). Note this copy has a Chevrolet V8.

When only 3 original cars of 6 were sold, Bugatti hid the other 2 oroginal cars behind a wall during WWII. These were taken out during the 50 's. Much is written about these cars. Notably, the first copy, sold to textile factory owner Esders not would have headlights. See also the Bugatti Museum.
When you are surfing on different Royale 41 Web pages, you will find soon that different authors have different accounts of  history.
