El Bugatti Type 35 went down in history as the most successful racing car of all time. Between 1924 and 1931 he prevailed in more than 1.000 competitions, including five consecutive hits in the Targa Florio.
At its peak, the Type 35 averaged 14 wins per month, a domain no race car has enjoyed before or since.
This car captivated not only fans of speed, but also visual artists. Such is the case by François Chevalier who made a bronze sculpture inspired by the life-size Type 35 weighing 340 kg. Chevalier performed eight copies of this work, which was conceived in 2013 and just released three years later.
The photos that accompany this article correspond to the second unit of this edition called "Bugatti 35 GP" and, according to specialists, it has a higher value than 60.000 dollars.
