This Bugatti Type 55 #55221 was raced at Le Mans in 1932 with Guy Bouriat and Louis Chiron behind the wheel. In 1933 it was rebodied by Joseph Figoni with a very pure and attractive looking roadster body.
This car has not been designed by Figoni & Falaschi, but only by Giuseppe FIGONI.
Giuseppe FIGONI and Ovidio FALASCHI started their partnership on May, 12nd 1935, with the creation of the "FIGONI & FALASCHI" company.
(thank you Olivier Figoni !)
I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them.
Congratulations on an excellent website.
