1928 Bugatti Type 43 news, pictures, specifications, and information
Boattail Roadster
Coachwork: Pritchard & Demollin
Chassis Num: 43222
In 1926 Bugatti introduced an updated version of the Type 35, the Type 35B, with a larger 8-cylinder, 2.3-liter supercharged engine. This engine was also used in their new road car, the Type 43. It featured larger brakes and a larger radiator also found in the Type 38 to make the Type 43 more suitable for road use. With its racing car background, it was only natural for the owners and even the factory to campaign the Type 43 in events like the Brooklands handicap. Identifying features include the alloy Grand Prix style wheels. Just 160 examples of the Type 43 were built by the Bugatti factory.

This example, with chassis number 43222, has unique two seater coachwork by Pritchard & Demollin. Only a few Bugattis were bodied by the small Belgian coachbuilder.
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.
