1927 Bugatti Type 38 Touring Car / 38243 Chassis Information

1927 Bugatti Type 38
Touring Car
Coachwork: Lavocat and Marsaud
Chassis #: 38243
Sold for $715,000 at 2013 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale.
This Bugatti Type 38 four seater open tourer wears coachwork by Lavocat et Marsaud of Boulogne. It is trimmed in wood around the seats and split windows. In 2008 the engine was completely rebuilt. When new, the car was sold new to South Africa where the early history of the car is not known. It was later discovered by R. Lee of Brazil. At the time, the car had low miles and was still in original condition.

Though the Type 38 was not a competitive Grand Prix racing car, it did share the same 8-cylinder powerplant with wider mountings, gearbox and brakes, as with the Type 35A Grand Prix car.
