Featured is one of the five Type 32 chassis built and clothed with the highly aerodynamic body that earned it the nick name 'Tank'. As mentioned before the cars built specifically for the French Grand Prix, but failed to impress. The 'Tank' was quickly abandoned as Bugatti focused on the development of the Type 35. The nick-name 'Tank' was used once again over a decade later for a special streamlined sports racer that scored two Le Mans wins. The pictured example has long been part of the Schlumpf collection and is shown above at the Musee National de l'Automobile.
