Bugatti T39

T39

The 1.5ltr GP formula was a hot bed of racing in the 1920’s. The T39 in all its guises was Bugattis answer to the formula and a very succesful one. The T39 ran in sports car form and in Voiturette formula, but became the first GP Bugatti to be fitted with a supercharger. The T35 and T51 all use T39 part numbers for its super charger and drive gear train calling back to this fabulous model. Thanks to David Hands for instrusting Tula to restore his car back to the track after so may years off the road.
