The Monterey Car Week is heading towards the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, the end of a stunning week for car collectors and enthusiasts worldwide. Following Bugatti's world premiere of the Centodieci for Friday's highlight at The Quail - A Motorsports Gathering, the new Bugatti now joins a unique exhibit at Le Domaine Bugatti. In the year of its 110th anniversary, the French hyper sports car manufacturer celebrates the models of modern company history.
"It is a unique sight to have all Bugatti hyper sports cars of the last 30 years together," says Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann. "Not only our customers, but all automotive enthusiasts visit our stand as a clear highlight of the weekend. And I think they will get their money's worth.” To admire are an EB110 Super Sport, a Veyron Super Sport, a total of three Chiron Sports1, the only Divo2 so far, La Voiture Noire2 - on the Concept Car Lawn directly below the Bugatti stand - and the new Centodieci. Only a Type 35 reminds us that the French brand does not just represent 30, but 110 years of manufacturing unique vehicles.
"Monterey Car Week is a traditionally important event for Bugatti. The USA is our largest market worldwide, and California in particular has a large number of enthusiasts for the most exclusive sports cars,” explains Winkelmann. "Every year, historic Bugatti vehicles can be admired on the lawn here at Pebble Beach, and more than once, a Bugatti has been named the 'Best of Show'."
Not only is Bugatti represented on the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance with beautiful pre-war models from private ownership, but also, as it was the case last year, Stephan Winkelmann and Bugatti Design Director Achim Anscheidt will be using their expertise to reinforce the jury to evaluate vehicles in 22 categories for originality, functionality and elegance. While wandering the sacred turf from one historic piece of automotive art to the next, Le Domaine Bugatti is a testimony to the fact that Bugatti continues to produce the most extraordinary automobiles in the world, even in the modern era.
