Description

The Bugatti Type 23 Brescia which is currently being offered was produced in August 1924 in Molsheim, in Alsace and was delivered to Paris on the 24th of September in 1924. During this time, all Bugatti‘s, with the exception of the racing models, were delivered as rolling chassis. Which means, that before the rolling chassis was delivered, it received an “original” Bugatti coach or a custom body made by another coachbuilder.

Because all chassis were delivered to Paris at that time, it is assumed that the first owner came from the Parisian area or from Paris itself. The owner history is fully documented from 1945 onwards with the original registration papers. The vehicle is Matching Numbers.

The current bodywork was rebuilt in collaboration with Bugatti in the style of Louis Chiron‘s own Bugatti, using the original bonnet.
The Brescia is part of a private collection and has been in the same possession for many years. It is roadworthy and finds itself in an absolutely perfect condition both visually and technically. It is the epitome of a collector‘s vehicle - currently the only Type 23 Brescia on the market.

History of the Type 23 series

The predecessor of the Type 23 is the Type 13. This was one of the first vehicles worldwide to be equipped with a 16-valve engine. This concept was originally developed in 1914, then the First World War began and Ettore Bugatti had to wait until 1920 to use these engines for racing. This year however was a great success, with Bugatti winning the French Voiturette Grand Prix at Le Mans. In 1921, Bugatti‘s quadruple victory at the Voiturette Grand Prix of Brescia was even more successful.

In honour of this memorable victory, all cars with 16 valves were then named Brescia. One of the few weak points of the Type 23 Brescia was the lack of front brakes. This was solved in 1924 when the front drum brakes became standard equipment.

With a relatively small but high-torque 4-cylinder engine and a comparatively low weight, the Type 13 and 23 vehicles were able to compete with more powerful but therefore heavier vehicles. The Brescia introduced the power-to-weight ratio, which is still an important criterion in motorsport today.
