Shown: 1928 Bugatti Type 35

Automobiles Ettore Bugatti was a French car manufacturer of high-performance automobiles, founded in 1909 in the then German city of Molsheim, Alsace by Italian-born Ettore Bugatti. Bugatti cars were known for their design beauty (Ettore Bugatti was from a family of artists and considered himself to be both an artist and constructor[clarification needed]) and for their many race victories. Famous Bugattis include the Type 35 Grand Prix cars, the Type 41 "Royale", the Type 57 "Atlantic" and the Type 55 sports car. The death of Ettore Bugatti in 1947 proved to be the end for the marque, and the death of his son Jean Bugatti in 1939 ensured there was not a successor to lead the factory. No more than about 8,000 cars were made. The company struggled financially, and released one last model in the 1950s, before eventually being purchased for its airplane parts business in the 1960s. In the 1990s, an Italian entrepreneur revived it as a builder of limited production exclusive sports cars. Today, the name is owned by German automobile manufacturing group Volkswagen. [Source:]

The Type 35 was the most successful of the Bugatti racing models. Its version of the Bugatti arch-shaped radiator that had evolved from the more architectural one of the Bugatti Type 13 Brescia, was to become the one that the marque is most known for though even in the ranks of the various Type 35s there were variations on the theme. The Type 35 was phenomenally successful, winning over 1,000 races in its time. It took the Grand Prix World Championship in 1926 after winning 351 races and setting 47 records in the two prior years. At its height, Type 35s averaged 14 race wins per week. Bugatti won the Targa Florio for five consecutive years, from 1925 through 1929, with the Type 35. [Source:]

2015 Ferrari SP America

2015 Ferrari SP America

Here’s another photo i posted on 500px but forgot to post on here. It’s Danny Wegman’s brand new, one-of-a-kind, 2015 Ferrari SP America, rumored to be worth over 4 million dollars. And I believe I’m still the only one who’s spotted it and had a chance to post the photos. As i said on the other photos, i literally had a small heart attack when I saw it just parked in the Wegmans parking lot between a few other cars. After the first one left from the spot next to it, i tried blocking any more people from taking the spot but even with me standing there blocking them, one guy still made me move so he could take that spot. At least i managed to keep him from touching it.
