The large number of Bugatti automobiles taking part in this year’s “Concours d’Elégance”, traditionally held during the third weekend in August at Pebble Beach, California, is already causing a lot of excitement. Never before in the long history of this world famous Oldtimers meeting have so many different types of Bugattis taken part.
In addition to the high performance sports car, the Veyron 16.4*), which will undoubtedly attract a great deal of attention with its appearance in the framework of the Show Cars event, a wide selection of historic Bugatti automobiles, some of them presented to the public for the first time, will be on the greens of the Pebble Beach Golf Course.
Not only the very first Bugatti that Ettore Bugatti produced in his Alsation Molsheim factory, a Type 10 from the year 1909, but the last Bugatti that rolled out of the works, a Type 251, will be present. There will also be a special show of different variations of the exclusive 57 model series to please visitors.
Of the more than 50 Bugattis that will take part in the “Concours d’Elegance”, 14 of them will be from the 57 series. Some of the most elegant automobiles ever built, among them the “Atlantic” and the “Atalante” will also be at Pebble Beach.
And, of course when talking about perfection in automobile design, the Bugatti “Royale” (Type 41) has to be mentioned. Only six “Royales” were ever created, and its appearance will certainly be one of the highlights of the event. This and other highlights that take place during the “Concours d’Elegance” can be viewed in the “events” section on the Bugatti web site.
Waiting for its big appearance in Pebble Beach: the Bugatti “Royale Type 41.

The values were calculated using the prescribed measurement method (§ 2, numbers 5, 6, 6 per car energy labeling ordinance in its current version).CO2 emissions, which result from the production and provision of fuel or other energy sources are not taken into account in the determination of CO2 emissions pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC. The figures do not refer to a specific vehicle and are not part of the offer, but only serve the purpose of comparing different vehicle types. The fuel consumption and CO2 emissions of a vehicle not only depend on the efficient utilization of the fuel by the vehicle, but also on driving style and other non-technical factors. CO2 is the main greenhouse gas responsible for global warming. Notice pursuant to Directive 1999/94/EC of each current valid version: For more information on official fuel consumption and the specific official CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be acquired from the "Guide for Fuel Economy, CO2 Emissions and Power Consumption of New Passenger Cars" available at all sales outlets and at DAT German Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Strasse 1, D-73760 Ostfildern – available free of charge or at www.dat.de. Efficiency classes of vehicles are evaluated in terms of CO2 emissions by means of the vehicle's empty weight. Vehicles that correspond to the average are classified as D. Vehicles that are better are graded with A+, A, B or C. Vehicles that are worse than the average are given an E, F or G.
