Bugatti

Established 1909: Molsheim, France

Bugatti should be defined as a near-perfect balance between artistry and machinery. Owing some early advancement to Harry Miller, Bugatti cars are the vision of founder Ettore and son Jean, artists who worked in the medium of motoring. Perhaps no other marque was ever so loved as Bugatti, because no other marque imbued its products with such an evocative character. With speed and luxury in astonishing variety, the Bugatti catalogue is incomparable.
