From 18 December 2017 to 10 March 2018.

Fifteen iconic Bugatti Grand Prix and Sport-type vehicles can be admired at this unprecedented exhibition in a unique setting.  All are in working order and come from private collections.

Founded in 1909 by Ettore Bugatti, an industrial designer from a family of artists, the brand and its cars are considered true works of art, both aesthetically and technically.  Featuring stylish lines and unique designs, Bugattis are reputed to be the most elegant, fastest and most powerful cars.

Among the exceptional cars dating from 1910 to 2016 that will be on display is the Bugatti type 35 C, which took part in the 1st Monaco Grand Prix in 1929 as number 8, driven by Marcel Lehoux.

As a reminder, at this 1st Grand Prix, the Bugatti brand topped the podium with the 35 B and 35 C models (similar to the Lehoux model).  Subsequently, in 1930,1931 and 1933, Bugatti cars won the Monaco Grand Prix races with spectacular success.

There will also be a major focus on sports vehicles, with an EB 110 model from 1991, the Veyron from 2015 and the Chiron (loaned by the brand and on show in January 2018).

This Chiron model was named after Monegasque racing driver Louis Chiron, who won the 1931 Monaco Grand Prix in a Bugatti type 51.
