At the French Grand Prix at Lyon in 1924, Bugatti unveiled a new production racing car, the famous Type 35. They were officially campaigned in every possible competitive event until 1930, during which this little jewel recorded a huge number of successes in the hand of Works drivers and private drivers. Today, it remains the symbol of the Bugatti marque. Throughout production, there were a number of variations offered by the factory for the Type 35, including supercharged versions, but always based on the eight cylinder engine. A four cylinder variant was introduced at the end of 1925 and designated the Type 37. It benefitted from the same chassis, and with a few alterations, the same chassis as its bigger sister. The Type 37 was renowned for its lightness, nimbleness and reliability, and was good for 145kph. Over the four years of production, approximately 270 examples were completed, of which many have disappeared, due to being worn out by active sporting careers. So, original examples with continuous history such as the car on offer today, are extremely rare.
