1930 Bugatti Type 46

Chassis number : 405

Share on:

One of the most elegant and luxurious Bugattis, the Type 46 was introduced at the Paris Auto Show in late 1929, and around 450 examples were produced. Bridging the gap between the opulent Royale and the Type 44, the Type 46 - also known as La Petite Royale - was Bugatti's standard luxury model. It is powered by an impressive 5.4-liter single-overhead-camshaft 8-cylinder engine.

This example was bodied by the relatively unknown carrosserie of Gaston Grumman of Clichy in France. It was shown by its first owner at the 1930 Paris Concours d'Elegance where it won every award for which it was eligible.
