Most of the books about Bugatti and his cars attempt to describe the life of the Patron, the mechanics of his cars or the racing careers. This book is different. It illustrates in 95 colour drawings by Kestler, backed up by contemporary photographs, the evolution of the coachwork designed by Ettore Bugatti, and his son Jean between 1913 and 1947. A gallery of the most unusual Bugattis, many of which no longer exist, is gathered together in these pages. Tables show the reader the date of each type: racing, sports, touring and The Royale, and reference them as either a replacement by new type, or development of an existing type, rather like a Bugatti family tree.
