T57, rebuilt to T101 specification 12 kB, The rebuilt to T101 spec was done at the factory. The new front was maybe also build at the factory? The car still exists, but received the old front back!
1956 T251 80kB, Photo: Jaap Horst The very unsuccessful Colombo design, meant to bring Bugatti back to Grand Prix racing. It was utterly unsuccessful, possibly in part because Roland Bugatti, son of Ettore, demanded that the car must have a stiff front axle. Apart from this, the transversely mounted 8-in line engine behind the driver was quite an innovative design!
