Bugatti racers ,and particularly French Bugatti racers ,are an eccentric crew and some of them are not into restoration .They love their cars to be as found or aged with the patina unmolested .This radiator badge is on an amazingly, original car which was actually competing on the track at the Le Mans Classic in 2008 and 2010 and I am sure it will be there again this year.

Overrestored is now very "out" and patina is "in "--even at the Pebble Beach Concours where there is now a class reserved for unrestored cars . What a shame that so many original and gracefully aged cars have been grossly over restored over the years to just win prizes at Pebble Beach .Are you listening Ralph Lauren?
