 Called The Art of Bugatti, the exhibition will take visitors on an emotional journey through Bugatti’s fabled history, focussing on the Bugatti family’s influence on the automobile as pieces of art.

Several revered Bugatti models from down the years will be on show, including an early Brescia race car, the race-winning Types 35, 37 and 51, Jean Bugatti’s Fiacre and Atlantic Coupé, the Type 57 C Aravis and Atalante, and the Type 41 Bugatti Royale.

The collection will also display select automobiles from the Schlumpf Reserve Collection of unrestored vintage automobiles, along with the new generation of Bugatti automobile prototypes including the Bugatti Veyron – the world’s fastest production car.

“For the first time ever under one roof, this will showcase the full scope of the Bugatti family’s varied expertise, creativity, technique, innovation, and appreciation of beauty and design,” said Peter Mullin, Founder and Chairman of the Mullin Automotive Museum, in a statement.

Following their run at the Mullin Automotive Museum, exhibits from The Art of Bugatti will form part of a traveling roadshow available for presentation at museums and venues across the world.
