Coupe
Coachwork: Million-Guiet
Chassis #: 50117
Bugatti's Type 50 was much improved over its Type 46 and cost almost double the price of its predecessor. In many ways the Type 50 was directly related to the Type 41 Royale with a ladder-frame chassis design offered in two sizes: the short wheelbase Sports and the longer Touring known as the 50T. Although the Type 50 was intended solely for road use, Bugatti prepared three cars for the 1931 Le Mans 24 Hours race. One of these returned to Le Mans three more times, leading the race for a while in 1935. Body styles for the Type 50 were quite diverse; they were bodied by either Bugatti or a coachbuilder of the customer's choice.

This three-passenger coupe has coachwork by the Parisian carrossier Million-Guiet and has won awards in many concours competitions, including First Prize for Classic Cars at the 1961 New York Auto Show.
