Propelling the marque further than any other car, the Type 35 was the most successful Bugatti product. It combined impressive styling with a racing package that ruled motorsport.
Type 35s were the cars that established Bugatti as a successful race car manufacturer. In 1926, Type 35 Bugattis took 12 major Grand Prix victories. Furthermore, privateer Type 35s were raced in almost every event at the time.
Good aerodynamics, reliability and handling combined in a lightweight package made the Type 35 very desirable. It was these qualities in which the Type 35 was a large improvement over the previous Type 30-based grand prix cars.
