Automobiles Ettore Bugatti was a French high-performance automotive company created in 1909 in the then-German city of Molsheim, Alsace, by Italian-born Ettore Bugatti. Bugatti automobiles were famous for their aesthetic beauty (Ettore Bugatti came from a family of painters and considered himself an artist) Bugatti cars achieved several racing victories. The Type 35 Grand Prix vehicles, the Type 41 "Royale" the Type 57 "Atlantic" and the Type 55 sports car are among the most famous Bugattis.
Ettore Bugatti's death in 1947 effectively ended the marque, while the death of his son Jean Bugatti in 1939 meant there was no successor to run the plant. Only roughly 8,000 automobiles were produced. The firm suffered financially and developed one last model in the 1950s before being bought out for its aeronautical parts business in the 1960s.
In the 1990s, an Italian entrepreneur resurrected it as a manufacturer of limited-edition, expensive sports vehicles. Volkswagen, a German vehicle manufacturing corporation, now owns the name.
