Bugatti, Ettore (Arco Isidoro)

born Sept. 15, 1881, Milan, Italy
died Aug. 21, 1947, Paris, France

Italian builder of racing and luxury automobiles.

His factory at Mosheim, Alsace (founded 1909), produced a highly successful low-powered racer for Le Mans. His luxurious Type 41 ("Golden Bugatti" or "La Royale"), produced in the 1920s, was probably the most meticulously built of all cars; no more than eight were constructed. His firm did not survive long after his death.
