Bugatti Type 101, a jewel developed after WWII
After the economic crisis and the WWII, the Bugatti company struggled to get back on track and to rebuild its reputation. Roland Bugatti, the youngest son of the family designed the Bugatti Type 101, where he upgraded the engine to 3.3-litre supercharged, replaced the gearbox and the carburetor, and added a modern platform with classic fenders and a stylized Bugatti horseshoe logo. Bugatti Type 101 was made in two models, a coupe and a convertible, especially for the Paris Auto Show in 1951. The collection was completed with other 7 units, the most famous of them all being the Type 101 C Antem Coupe which is now part of the private car collection of Nicholas Cage, the American actor.
