The Art of Bugatti at the Mullin Automotive Museum

Peter Mullin has the world's largest private collection of Bugattis. The museum he founded in California now has almost 40 of his French treasures on display…

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.

Several vintage and modern Bugattis can be found in the Classic Driver Market.
