Italian born Ettore Bugatti, manufactured these automobiles in Molsheim, a town in the Alsace region, which was a part of the German Empire (Alsace was annexed by Germany in 1871 and restored to France in 1919). Known for its luxurious passenger cars and race cars, Bugatti is particularly noted for winning many races, including LeMans in 1937 and 1939. The custom coachwork on this particular automobile is by Gangloff, located in Colmar, Alsace region near the Molsheim plant.
