Around 800 of these pretty Frua-bodied coupés were built over the seven-year production life. Some had alloy bodies, some steel, plus there were three different engines.

    OSLO. Man denkt sich doch einiges in dieser vorbildlich sauberen Stadt. Einerseits schaffen es die Norweger, als ökologische Wunderwuzzis dazustehen, etwa dank massiver Elektroautoförderung.

The amazing grid of 25 Bugattis blasting away at the wonderful 72 nd Members’ Meeting was another first for Lord March’s team, but the biggest surprise was a Type 57G running among the raucous pack of supercharged Molsheim open-wheelers.
