6 were built, not 4 or 7, this one (roadster) was built for armand esders. it was the most luxurious car in the world - 12.7 litre engine and nearly 300 BHP. imagine it was 6.5 metres long!
unfortunately, those cars were one of the reasons of bancrupcy of the manufacturer, the cost of building them was very big and nearly noone wanted to buy them. so after the bancrupcy the models that weren't sold as a car, were sold in parts and now you can find some of the parts in old trains and other machines.

Also note the absence of headlights; the owner never drove at night. Sadly this car got destroyed, so only five original cars survive today. There is a replica of this car in the Schlumpf museum in Mulhouse, France.

These cars were built in the late 1920s, and were not the reason for the company's bankruptcy after the War. With the Type 57 Bugatti had one of their best periods in the 1930s.

well i'm not sure i can fully agree to that, if you don't believe me you should believe what bugatti's official website says:

Good constructive commentary guys. You've done your research! Got loads of T41 pics
Incidentally, the chap in the picture posted by Matt is Jean Bugatti, who designed most of the early cars coachwork. He was killed in an accident testing one of the speedsters.
Wouters cannibal quote applies once more!

@Glisson, may I remind you that this is the High-Res hideout, and that your pictures do not match the 1024* criteria.

No hard feelings intended

Anywhere else in the forums is fine, preferrably Multimedia or Euro or Classic.
