We Can Insure Your Bugatti
Italian-born Ettore Bugatti is an accomplished designer and engineer before founding the company that bears his name. In the early 1900’s, Ettore is under contract with the Deutz engine factory in Cologne, Germany where he develops a 50 hp engine housed in a Type 10 prototype, all the while secretly designing his own lightweight racecar in his cellar.
After terminating his contract with Deutz in 1909, Ettore takes his severance and leases an old dyeworks building in Molsheim, where he launches the Automobiles Ettore Bugatti company with his first racer, the Type 13, which competes in the French Grand Prix in 1910 at Le Mans.
Ettore achieves over 2,000 wins -and more notoriety- with a later model racer, the Type 35.
Street Legal Black Bess
When he turns his eye to making his racers street-worthy, he uses the French word, pur sang, meaning thoroughbred or pure blood, to describe them. The Bugatti Type 18, nicknamed the Black Bess, is one of the first street-legal racing cars of the pre-war era. This 5.0-liter, 100 hp rocket has a top speed of 100 mph, making it the fastest vehicle in the world at the time. The Bugatti Type 18 is the inspiration for the legendary Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse “Black Bess.”
The Shift to Luxury Cars
During the 1930’s the Bugatti influence with motorsports dwindles, giving way for the Bugatti luxury car business to grow. The iconic Type 57 is designed by Ettore’s son, Jean Bugatti -and for the first time, a Bugatti could be ordered in C, S and SC variants from the factory.
Commemorating a Legend
In the second half of the 20th century, the Bugatti company changes ownership many times and falls into decline. Then in 1991, Bugatti unveils the EB110 to commemorate Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday. The EB110 features a quad-turbocharged 12-cylinder motor positioned just behind the driver with the quadrupled power of an all-wheel-drive system. Fewer than 140 EB110 models are produced between 1991 and 1995, making it a highly sought after prize for collectors.
A New Millennium
When Bugatti is acquired by Volkswagen, the company turns its vision to the new century with the production of hyper sportscars. Following the success of the EB 218 four-door saloon -the EB 18.3 and the EB 18.4- the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 is unveiled in the year 2000. Named after the famed French racing driver, Pierre Veyron, it is powered by a 16-cylinder, 630hp W engine.
At the Geneva Motorshow in 2016, Bugatti unveils the Chiron, the world’s first production car with 1,500 hp. Bugatti secures advance orders of nearly one third of the 500 units produced … at the base price of $4.8 million each.
Epoch Innovation and Interpretation
In 2019, the iconic Bugatti automotive company announces its latest hyper sportscar, the Centodieci. The name Centodieci is Italian for 110, commemorating the 110th year of the French company founded by Ettore Bugatti in 1909 and represents 110 years of manufacturing truly awe-inspiring automobiles. From the Type 13, the first pureblood Bugatti and the spaceship-like Veyron to the record-setting Chiron models and the Centodieci, a stylistic tip-of-the-hat to the original EB110 that commemorates Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday, Bugatti Automobiles has continually evolved with leaps in precision and power, imagining the fastest cars on the planet … and making them real.

No problem – Classic Auto Insurance offers rollover miles from one year’s policy to the next. We understand plans change and we don’t feel you should lose miles just because you didn’t use them.
