Glorious stuff. Pure automotive pornography.
The wheels alone on that 59 are magnificent.
Many thanks for posting.

"One I'm not sure of and Type 37"

I think the one on the left (CE520HB) may be a Type 40.....

Just beautiful. A lovely sight and I'm sure a wonderful sound.

I think you are correct Gary.

The French style tend's more towards such a car being kept "dans son jus" wearing all the scars and patina acquired over a lifetime, or as we might say the "oily rag" tendency than massive restoration.

Ivan Dutton did have an immaculate recreation of a T35 for sale for (IIRC) €400000, but it was clearly labelled as such

The one is black is the recreation, but not by Pur Sang (I cannot remember the name). It was built in 2005 but I was astonished at how authentic it looked. Everything had been appropriately aged to look as though it had 90 years of provenance.

But at the end of the day, who cares as long as you are having fun. There is a nice rep. on V&P for around £200K

The 2005 one looks a lot like one built out here recently

It was on sale for €400,000. The two originals alongside it were, not surprisingly, POA!

Giles thanks for the images - some salve for those who can't be there. And your taste in subjects is impeccable!

For those who know and like Bugattis, this is a very rare bird being driven (IMHO) rather well.

Type 59 at Montlhery

Will someone please give me several million to buy one of these?

What an amazing piece of film.
Thanks for posting.
Any idea what the dark blue car was, that he finally got past, at around 6min 20secs?

Re: A few Bugattis - 16/05/19 06:11 PM

I see that three T59s were entered this year, so there must be a high chance that the one in the film was there - they made so few that to get three together must be nothing short of remarkable.

I do not think that all of these ran, but pick a dark blue one from here

Plateau E

I've heard from my friend Jims that between Vinmog, Morgan Club de France and MSCC that there were about 130 Morgans at Monthlhéry - plus competitors I presume. Not bad.

Sounds about the right number.
Morgans seemed to be the only post 1940 marque that was there in any number.
