1929 Bugatti Type 43 news, pictures, specifications, and information
Sport 2/4 Tourer
Chassis Num: 43278
In 1927 Bugatti introduced an updated version of the Type 35 with a larger supercharged engine. This 2.3-liter engine was also used in its new road car, the Type 43. The frame of the Type 43 was all-new and was similar in design to the racing type 35b. The Type 43 featured larger brakes and a larger radiator in order to make it more suitable for the road. The Bugatti Type 43A, introduced in 1929, was more luxurious and thus heavier. With its racing car pedigree it was only natural for Bugatti to campaign the Type 43 and 43A in events like the Brooklands handicap races of the 1930s. One of only seventeen Type 43As, this car has been driven in events such as the Mille Miglia, and it won the Bugatti Molsheim Concours in 1999.
The Bugatti Type 43 was introduced in 1927 and would remain in production until 1930 with around 160 examples produced. It was powered by a detuned engine from the Type 35B Grand Prix and fitted with a supercharger offering 120 horsepower. It had a mid-mounted tranmsission with axles similar to the Type 38.
