1932 Bugatti Type 55 22
Bugatti Type 55 By the early 1930s Ettore Bugatti had established an unrivalled reputation for building cars with outstanding performance on road or track the worlds greatest racing drivers enjoying countless successes aboard the Molsheim factorys products and often choosing them for their everyday transport. Because of its lengthy run of success, Ettore Bugatti remained stubbornly committed to his single-cam engine, only adopting the more advanced double-overhead-camshaft method of valve actuation, after much prompting by his eldest son Jean, on the Type 50 of 1930. From then on Jean Bugatti took greater responsibility for design, his first car being the exquisite Type 55 roadster, a model ranking among the finest sports cars of the 1930s.The Type 55s 2,262cc, supercharged, twin-cam, straight-eight engine was carried over from the successful Type 51 Grand Prix car - successor to the legendary Type 35 - and fitted in a ladder frame chassis wider and stronger than that of its Type 43 road-car predecessor. The precocious Jean Bugatti added his own individual touch, designing a sublime two-seat roadster body that is universally acknowledged as one of the finest ever to grace an automobile. Aimed at only the wealthiest clientele, the Type 55 sold in commensurately limited numbers, a mere 38 being built between 1932 and 1935, the vast majority of these in the first year of production1927 Bugatti Type 37
Founder Ettorre Bugatti was born in Italy, and the automobile company that bears his name was founded in Molsheim, a town in the Alsace region, which was then a part of the German Empire (Alsace was annexed by Germeny in 1871 and restored to France in 1919). The company was known for the advanced engineering in its premium road cars and its success in early Grand Prix racing, winning the first ever Monaco Grand Prix. Bugatti's cars were as much works of art as they were mechanical creations, with hand turned finishes on the engine blocks, and safety wires threaded through almost every fastener in intricately laced patterns. Fitted with a new 1496 cc straight 4 cylinder engine, 290 Type 37s were built. This engine was a SOHC 3-valve design and produced 60 hp. the same engine went on to be used in the Type 40. the car weighed only 1650 lbs., so performance was quite lively. Cable operated brakes were used, but these were quite effective. Note the one-piece brake drum/wheel assemblies that were made of aluminum.
