Known History

This car is a replica of the 1928 Bugatti 35B (with the 2.3 liter supercharged engine), produced beginning of the 2000's by Pur Sang Argentina, a well-known and respected specialist in this field.

Well-known in France, this car belonged to a collector and car connoisseur in the south-west of the country during the mid-2000s. He used it to take part in various historic events including the Grand Prix de l'Age d'Or à Dijon, the Remparts d'Angoulême, Classic Days at Magny-Cours and the Grand Prix de Vichy Classic. It was very quick and distinguished itself with some excellent results. The car was easily identifiable at that time, being painted yellow.

During the 2010s, it passed into the hands of another great collector, the late Jacques Braneyre, from Perpignan. Passionate, and a regional delegate for the Fédération Française des Véhicules d'Époque, he had always dreamed of a Type 35 and this example lived up to his expectations. He had it repainted dark blue, which was more to his taste, and the car was sold in 2018 to an enthusiast from Carcassonne. A former engineer and automobile dealer, who had been looking for a Type 35 B for a long time, the new owner carried out various works to prepare it for historic racing. He made a bespoke aluminium catch tank to collect oil vapours, fitted a circuit breaker, electric fan and FIA homologated rear rain lights, and carefully and patiently adjusted the single Solex carburettor and the ignition, having installed a costly Scintilla Magneto. Once the work was finished, he took part in the Remparts d'Angoulême retrospective in 2019.

This Pur Sang Bugatti 35 B complies with current regulations for historic racing. It is being sold with a collection of gearbox parts and a new Blockley tyre. Running well and free from any youthful flaws, this car will provide its new owner all the joys of driving a Bugatti 35 B, with its wonderful sound, for a price that is much more affordable price than a genuine example.
