Bugatti Type 37 GP
The classic racing Bugatti, the 2-Litre 8-cylinder Type 35, was first produced in 1925 and dominated Grand Prix racing in the late twenties.
In 1926 Bugatti developed a smaller-engined version, the Type 37, using the same chassis and body. This model was used successfully for smaller-capacity racing, and was very popular with amateur drivers.
This car was originally owned by Mr Smith, the chief engineer at Lever Brothers, who in the early 1930s made a very well-engineered conversion of the engine to twin magneto ignition. A supercharged version of the Type 37 took part in the second British Grand Prix in 1927.
