In 1951, Bugatti introduced the Type 101. The Type 101 was created in order to revive Bugatti after the second world war and the passing of Ettore Bugatti and his son. A short lived and limited production model, the Type 101 was based on the Bugatti Type 57 and powered by a 3.3L straight 8 engine. Just seven Type 101 chassis were built, and they were bodied by an assortment of coachbuilders and designers, including Ghia, Gangloff, Exner, Antem, and Guilloré. Two more Type 101's have been converted from Type 57's, as well as one Type 101 that was finished in 1965 by Virgil Exner. These very rare and unique cars vary greatly between examples, making each one even more special.
