1939 Bugatti Bulletin

In 1939 Jean Bugatti tried a new way of communicating with his clients, through a "Bugatti Bulletin", the first of which appeared July 15, 1939.

The Bulletin has various articles amongst which:

  • AVANT PROPOS - Introduction of this novel means of communication
  • Braking distances at various speeds
  • Some maintenance details
  • New agency in Lisieux and presence of Bugatti at the International Exposition in New York
  • The Bugatti Owners Club
  • Races - amongst others Le Mans
  • A record breaking attempt in a standard T57(C?) Galibier; average of 182 km/h over one hour
  • Concours d'Élegance in the Bois de Boulogne, also a Galibier, this time a T57C

This first one was also to be the last issue, as we know, Jean died less than a month later.
