The Book of Jean Bugatti
Unfortunately there have been unofficial attempts to recreate Bugatti's past, this is dangerous and harmful to the legacy that Jean left behind. As well this discredits the Bugatti brand as it exists today and as it heads into the future.
My whole 2010 senior thesis project goal was to shed light upon and dispel the rumor of Jean's death. He did survive and the bugatti brand, family and ethos, continued unbroken from 1909 through to this day and into the future.
It is frustrating to see these fictitious and false "what if" projects, when the truth has already been uncovered and explained in a book that was published in late 2010. For this reason I have decided to recirculate this wonderful book, that will again aim to dispel these false notions of Jean's death and cast light upon the extraordinary machines that he created in complete secrecy.
It has been a great pleasure of mine to be able to participate in creating this book, with the help of historians, Bugatti experts, coach builders, and even some of the engineers who worked for the comapny through these tough and secret years.
Without their help and knowledge none of this would have been possible. To them a huge thanks.
