12 Days in Paris: 100 Years of Bugatti

Bugatti celebrated one hundred years with a rally on the Champs Elysees in Paris on Sunday (September 20). We caught the end of the exhibit and WOW! The Bugatti company, considered legendary for producing some of the most expensive, most exclusive and fastest cars in the world, was founded in Molsheim, France (originally a district of Germany), in 1909 by Italian car maker Ettore Bugatti. It is owned today by the Volkswagen group.Some 60 Bugatti cars, from a very old 1929 Type 44 to the very recent Bugatti Veyron, began their centenary rally last week in Molsheim and ended it in this exhibition on the Champs Elysees in Paris.
