Bugatti Type 101 Ghia Roadster

Don't you think this car looks very strange?

It surely is, this pic is taken at the Pebble Beach concours, and they would not allow cars that have a Bugatti logo on the grill and still aren't one.
The Bugatti 101 was the only type that was built after the war. Six were constructed, this one bodied by Ghia was once owned by Virgil Exner. Two others are still in the Schlumpf museum in Mulhouse, France.

u can tell that this Maserati was probably awesome for its time, id still love to own it now. as for that Bugatti, it sure does look strange. especially in that second pic with the front end.

i know it has a badge . and a radiator grill .. i "have" photos of this car .. and it was done around 1962 .. i think ...but my point was that .. although it has a Bugatti chassis(it is a remodeling if i'm not mistaking ) I'm not considering that car a car worthy of the name .. ( Veyron also )

you could well be right about this, I suppose it could have been a bare chassis left over from the defunct factory. The body looks way to modern for a late forties car but the Ghia design's from the fifties were quite extravagant. I think organisers of concourses may have a blind eye for Bugatti derivatives, I think they even allow the Atlantic copy to show up, but not participate.
