Founded in 1909, Bugatti was created by Ettore Bugatti in the then-German city of Molsheim, Alsace (now a part of north-eastern France.) The company is best known for its line of racing vehicles, including the Type 35 Grand Prix cars, the Type 41 “Royale”, the Type 57 “Atlantic'', and the Type 55 sports car. Bugatti has consistently won racing titles, with the first victories coming from the 1920 Grand Prix de la Sarthe in Le Mans and the 1921 Grand Prix des Voiturettes in Brescia, both won with a Type 13.
The first automobile manufactured by Bugatti was the Type 1, but little information is known about this vehicle. The next car the company made was the Type 2, which won an award at the 1901 Milan Trade Fair. The first production vehicle the company made was the Type 13, an eight-valve engine race car. The car had 30 horsepower and weighed 660 pounds. Today, Bugatti primarily makes race cars and high-end supercars. Its current models include the Chiron, Chiron Sport, Chiron Pur Sport, and Chiron Super Sport. Because of the company's high price and low production volume, it does not sell near the same amount as other recognizable brands. Bugatti sold its most vehicles worldwide in recent years in 2021, moving 150 cars total.
Bugatti plans to expand its current vehicle portfolio, announcing two new models coming by 2030. One will be a gas-electric hybrid, and the model after that will be an EV. This comes after the news that Bugatti has merged with Rimac, another supercar manufacturer.
