The brand name Bugatti
is one that is recognised throughout the world as being among the very best
when it comes to luxury
automobiles. The Bugatti
family were known for being the very best
engineering geniuses of their time, combined with quality lifestyle
and artistic talent.
The head of the family was Giovanni Bugatti
, however the family really only became noticed at the turn of the 20th century when Carlo Bugatti
, the second born, earned himself international acclaim. This was due to the unique and revolutionary luxury
designs of furniture; designed by Carlo, using some of the most exotic materials from all over the world. These luxury
materials would be incorporated into the vehicles that were to come from Bugatti
in the future.
Ettore and Rembrandt Bugatti
both had their father’s skills when it came to engineering. However, it was Ettore who’s high standards and luxury
craftsmanship, the definition of his engineering work, which would leave the motor industry in awe. Ettore's son Roland, went on to take over the family business when the second World War had passed. Sadly, Bugatti
were unable to keep up with the ever-changing developments in the motor industry, and manufacturing came to a halt, for some time to come. However, one thing set Bugatti
apart from the numerous legions of their former competitors. As a luxury lifestyle
lived on, and it did not become a memory of the past.
Molshiem – Bugatti automobile's home
brand was acquired by Volkswagen in 1998, and it was decided that production of the luxury
legendary cars would continue at Molshiem, the home of Bugatti
. This indecently was where Bugatti
originally had founded his manufacturing plant. Molshiem was the true home of Bugatti
. It was here where many racing victories occurred and where Bugatti
became a living legend, among the very best
in the world.
They say you cannot keep a good man down and the same applies to the Bugatti lifestyle
brand. The ingenious engineering that began with Ettore was reborn with production of luxury
super cars beginning again in 2001.
