Bugatti's manager, Pierre Marco, made an attempt to re-launch the marque again in 1951, using an improved Type 57 chassis as the basis for the new Type 101. Bugatti announced plans to produce 50 cars but only six chassis were actually finished. Five were custom-bodied by other coachbuilders and later, in 1956, this car, the last Bugatti to be built, was bodied by Ghia. Virgil Exner designed this Ghia Roadster and Exner's son, Virgil Jr., designed its interior. This unique Bugatti was exhibited at the 1965 Turin Motor Show, but financing could not be arranged and future production plans were scrapped. Virgil Exner owned the car himself for many years but drove it less than 1,000 miles. After the car changed hands a few times, the current owner acquired it in 1989.
