About This CarChassis number 2386, equipped with the iconic 16-valve engine, is one of the fortunate survivors.
Originally, this car was delivered to the London Bugatti agent in chassis form in 1925 and received its first registration on November 11, 1925, with the current registration number. While most of the mechanical specifications remain original (except for an engine block replacement in the 1950s due to damage to the original engine), the present body, closely resembling the believed original body, was installed in 1989.
Under the HoodThe engine of this car has been meticulously maintained and is in impeccable condition, a testament to the care and attention it has received. Extensive work has been carried out, including a top-end rebuild and the installation of a new cylinder block. Marque specialist Ivan Dutton separately rebuilt the engine's bottom end, ensuring both reliability and performance. Other noteworthy modifications include the replacement of the radiator by Anglia Radiators and the conversion of the clutch from wet to dry, while retaining the original parts with the car to showcase the restoration's precision.
