History of the Bugatti Type 40

The Type 30 was the first of the Bugatti 8-cylinder family, introduced in 1922. The 1926 Type 38, as well as the Type 40, Type 43, Type 44, and Type 49, shared the same general design. The Type 40, like the early Brescia models it replaced, boasted excellent performance, with great handling and braking for a car of its day.

The Type 40, which debuted in 1926 was manufactured until 1930 and was powered by a three-valve 1.5 L engine that had previously been used in some Type 37s. It was either an enclosed tourer or a compact roadster (like the Type 40A). A total of 830 were constructed. The Type 40A utilised the same block as the Type 40 and had a displacement of 1.6 L. The Type 40As were all built in 1930.
