Bugatti is a French luxury car manufacturer that was founded in 1909 by Ettore Bugatti. The company is known for producing some of the most exclusive and expensive cars in the world, as well as for its long and storied history in motorsports.
Bugatti was founded in Molsheim, France, and Ettore Bugatti was known for his innovative and artistic approach to car design. Some of the company's early models, such as the Type 13 and Type 35, were highly successful race cars and helped establish Bugatti's reputation as a leading manufacturer of sports cars.
In the 1930s, Bugatti introduced the Type 41, also known as the 'Royale,' which was one of the largest and most luxurious cars of its time. The car was so expensive and exclusive that only a handful were ever produced, and it cemented Bugatti's reputation as a maker of exclusive, high-end automobiles.
After World War II, the company struggled financially and was eventually sold to a succession of owners. In the 1990s, the Bugatti brand was resurrected by the Volkswagen Group, which released a new model called the Bugatti Veyron in 2005. The Veyron became one of the most successful and iconic supercars of all time, and it was followed by the even more powerful and exclusive Bugatti Chiron in 2016. Today, Bugatti continues to produce some of the most sought-after and exclusive cars in the world.
