The engine used in the Type 35 was high sprung and not really suited to use on the roads so Ettore had to look for alternatives. He chose the four cylinder engine used in the Type 40 and installed it in a chassis similar to the Type 35's, the Type 37 was born.

The Type 37 proved instantly successful as provided a Grand Prix winning chassis for roadcar money. It was available in two different versions, the Naturally Aspirated Type 37 and the supercharged Type 37A. Production lasted until 1930.

This specific example is seen here at the 2002 Bagatalle Louis Vuitton Classic where it competed in the unrestored class. Interestingly it features the Bugatti patented wheels also used on the Type 35B Grand Prix racers.
