The Art of Bugatti at the Mullin Automotive Museum
Mullin’s fascination with Bugattis became apparent more than 30 years ago, when he came across a Type 35B at Laguna Seca Raceway. Since then, he has amassed 41 important models of various vintages, the vast majority of which have formed a new exhibition at the museum he founded in 2010. Highlight exhibits include a Type 35C that won more than 1,000 races in period, the famous ‘lake-find’ Type 22 Brescia, and a Type 57SC Atlantic bought recently by Mullin for upwards of $30m.
Additionally, the museum in Oxnard, California, will also play host to other works of art produced by the Bugatti dynasty – including sculptures, furniture pieces, and even a replica of the 100P aircraft designed by Ettore Bugatti to compete in the 1939 Deutsch de la Meurthe Cup Race.
