1922 Bugatti Type 30

In 1922, Bugatti presented a production car with an eight-cylinder engine for the first time. For this, the mechanics around Ettore Bugatti joined two four-cylinder engine blocks together. The new Type 30 remained in the model range from 1922 to 1926. Around 600 examples were built during this period. Customers had a choice of different bodies, from four-seater tourers to coupés and convertibles. Many owners sent letters to Bugatti to thank them for the sporty, powerful handling of their cars. Eventually, the Type 30 chassis was also used to create the Type 32 Tank with streamlined bodywork for the 24-hour race in Le Mans. This made the Type 30 on of the most important vehicles in the brand’s early history. Its place in the portfolio was finally taken by the Type 38.
