Additional Details:
Ettore Bugatti, artistic creator of dynamic sports cars in Molsheim, France, demonstrated his "Royales" between 1927 and 1932; all survive. Each was designed to be of such size and elegance that it would shame every other pretentious classic car. This Bugatti, built in 1930 for Dr. Joseph Fuchs, was fitted with a custom body by Ludwig Weinberger in Munich. The 784 cu. in. eight-cylinder engine will drive the "Royale" up to 125 mph
