*Fully operational and running
*In Italy until 2018
*Comes with extensive history and trophies it has won
*The most affordable route into Bugatti events

This Peugeot Bebe had spent its entire life in Italy until being imported in 2018, much of its earlier days being used in the grounds of a villa on Lake Garda. It comes with correspondence from its first owner, Turin-domiciled Pietro Chilesotti, with Peugeot in 1914. More recently it has been used in historic events and tours and after a recent transmission re-build is said to be fully operational and running, the 855cc four-cylinder engine delivering a top speed of 46mph.

An opportunity to acquire a car designed by Ettore Bugatti but a fraction of the price of those bearing his name, and is said to be functioning perfectly.
