If we’re being totally honest with ourselves, the vast majority of us will never own a real Bugatti, despite all the admiration we may heap upon them. One could scratch that itch through all manner of surrogates – literature, models, posters – but why not a replica, one that is built to the owner’s standards of quality? A good place to start, then, would be this fiberglass Bugatti T55 body for sale on Hemmings.com. From the seller’s description:
Body Patterns constructed of heavy fiberglass molded from a Real, Extremely Original Bugatti T55 Jean SS Roadster. Only 13 of the original T55 Jean Roadsters were ever produced from 1932 to 1935. This Body Pattern has all of the correct original proportions and belt mouldings so an exact Aluminum Coachwork can be fabricated from it correctly. Or, this body can be used for an extremely economical re-creation.
The question to answer: How would you finish off this Bugatti replica? Faithfully, in aluminum? Or with the fiberglass body itself, using a modern chassis?
