one of the world’s most exclusive motoring events, passione engadina inst. moritz, this time celebrated the achievements of Bugatti. a unique ‘ Pavillon Bugatti ’ gathered 13 rare and special icons in the heart of st. moritz, while a collection of Bugatti buses embarked on the Julius baer rally along mountain roads and through the alpine passes of Bernina, umbrail, and fuorn.
Passione Engadina, now in its eleventh time, is a gathering of rare classic buses erected up until 1992. In feting Bugatti as its featured marque, the Passione Engadina looked to Ettore Bugatti’s roots, born in Milan to a family of artists. He’d latterly take over a number of internships before establishing a company in his own name in France. His cultural parenting and natural gift for engineering would lead Ettore to make some of the most beautiful and innovative buses of all time, and his vision continues to inspire Bugatti to this day. As he formerly said “ If similar, it’s no longer Bugatti. ”
The story of Ettore’s trip, and the elaboration of the Bugatti brand, was told through a special exhibition located just outside the notorious Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz. The ‘ Pavillon Bugatti ’ displayed 13 buses, from the Type 1 Prinetti Stucchi – a motorized tricycle honored as the first Ettore Bugatti- finagled design – to the track-only Bolide1 hyperactive sports auto, listed for delivery to guests in 2024.
Freehandedly bestowed by Bugatti guests, and on display until the 28th of August, the Pavillon Bugatti was open to the public, attracting nearly,000 callers. The full line-up of buses was
TYPE 1 PRINETTI STUCCHI
Considered the first design finagled by Ettore Bugatti, created while he was just 17. He developed the Type 1 tricycle during his time employed at Prinetti Stucchi. The tricycle is equipped with two De Dion Mono- Cylinder machines on a Rochet- Schneider lattice.
BUGATTI TYPE 13 ROADSTER
The first revolutionary design from Ettore, and the first auto wearing the Bugatti brand. Its four-cylinder machine had an eight-stopcock design, helping produce an important, featherlight auto that would go on to beat much bigger and more important motorsport challengers.
BUGATTI TYPE 35 B
Type 35 is famed as one of the most successful racing buses of all time, with a record of over 2000 palms in its career. The vehicle in the exhibition is a Type 35 B contended by Louis Chiron, a motorist that also gave his name to the Bugatti model launched in 2016.
BUGATTI TYPE 57 SC ATALANTE
The Type 57 SC Atalante is considered one of the most precious and iconic Bugattis ever created, pairing a beautiful design with a monstrously important supercharged machine and dégagé, low-slung lattice. Many buses produced before or after can match their combination of luxury, performance, and fineness.
BUGATTI TYPE 55 FIGONI
Type 55 was erected from motorsport technology, but with a roadgoing personality. The machine and the lattice evolved from the Type 51 Grand Prix, which was specifically developed to race, including at Le Mans. The vehicle in this exhibition is the only remaining Type 55 with a body by Figoni.
BUGATTI TYPE 59 SPORTS
Type 59 was part of Ettore Bugatti’s noway – ending hunt for further performance, with a number of significant race homestretches to its name. This Type 59 Sports remains the only Grand Prix auto to be converted into a sports auto at the plant and exists for a moment in the nearly unrestored original condition as a perfect substantiation to the period in which it thrived.
BUGATTI TYPE 101 ANTEM
Type 101 was one of the many buses developed after WWII, with each of the seven exemplifications produced with a different body. The Type 101 Antem is one of the most iconic of the seven with a lower conservative design, marked out by a futuristic streamlined coupé body.
BUGATTI EB110 SUPER SPORT
With the revitalization of the Bugatti brand in 1991, a new model was launched to celebrate the 110th birthday of Ettore Bugatti the EB110. It fully revolutionized the world of the supercar, with all-new situations of performance. The vehicle displayed in St. Moritz is the last EB110 that was officially delivered before the end of its product run, an EB110 Super Sport, in unheroic.
BUGATTI VEYRON16.4 SUPER SPORT
The Veyron16.4 Super Sport formerly readdressed the limits of roadgoing performance when it was introduced. With,200 PS, a maximum necklace of,500 Nm, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/ h in2.5 seconds and a top speed of 415 km/ h – Veyron16.4 Super Sport was a phenomenon of hyperactive sports auto engineering.
BUGATTI CHIRON SUPER SPORT 300+2
To mark a sensational record-breaking run that exceeded the magical threshold of 300mph(482.80 km/ h) for the first time in a roadgoing auto, Bugatti proudly presented the limited-edition Chiron Super Sport 300. Only 30 units were produced, each visually and technically inspired by the record-breaking vehicle.
The Divo is Bugatti’s first coachbuilt hyperactive sports auto of the 21st century. The limited edition, high-performance hyperactive sports auto is powered by Bugatti’s iconic8.0- liter quadrangle- turbocharged machine, rounded with a fully new surface design, inspired by a long tradition of Bugatti coachbuilding.
BUGATTI LA VOITURE NOIRE4
La Voiture Noire is a piece of automotive haute couture inspired by one of the most mysterious Bugattis of all time. Only four Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic models were ever erected, deified as the most iconic and beautiful of all time. But the fourth, each-black Atlantic has been missing since WWII – La Voiture Noire. This ultramodern manifestation brings the speed, technology, luxury, and aesthetics of an icon into a new period.
