Bugatti introduced its very last ‘Type’ models in 1955, the Type 251.
This exotic 2-door roadster was designed by Gioacchino Colombo and featured a quite unique engine configuration - transversely mounted behind the driver. It had a 2.5L displacement and could deliver up to 230 hp. The Type 251 also featured a newly-developed de Dion tube non-independent rear suspension aimed to add to car’s sports capabilities. This model was discontinued a in 1956, but not before competing for 18 laps in the French Grand Prix (driven by Maurice Trintignant).
