An interesting book The Bugatti Review; Veloce too the good initiative to re-offer the book a=on the Bugatti 8-cylinder types in its Classic Reprint Series. This time with soft cover, though, with more than 200 pictures and drawings. A must for those who would like to know more about the La Marque's successful touring cars!- Autoliefhebbers; Veloce's softback reprint is well illustrated with contemporary and recent images. The former are especially engaging, with some bodywork designs being from the Voisin school of form over function, and others almost the frumpy. Most, however, were pleasingly elegant and lacking the thuggishness of so many same-era Bentleys. As an introduction, it fulfils the role more than adequately. - Classic Car Weekly. Owners and Bugattists who really want everything from their brand will buy this. - Klassiek & Techniek. This delightful book is a pictorial history of the post WW1 8 cylinder touring cars that were the most successful Bugatti models until the advent of the Type 57. What makes the book so interesting ate the numbers period photographs that allow us to se the unique coachwork used on these 8 cylinder touring cars. Not much has been written on these important cars, and the 2550 produced of these models accounts for one third of the approximately 7830 Bugattis made. This is another of Veloce Publishings quality automotive books that is very reasonably priced and should be added to every Bugatti enthusiasts collection. - Pur Sang.
