The Type 59 was Bugatti’s final race car of the 1930s. Built for the new ’750 kg’ regulations that would come into effect in 1934, its enlarged 3.3 litre straight-eight engine was dual purpose: to not only power the Type 59 race car but the upcoming Type 57 grand tourer. The car was noticeably lower than its predecessor due to its underslung rear suspension and dry-sump engine.
