Over 400 models were sold making T35 the foundation of motor racing for many years. Among the victories of Bugatti Type 35 there are five consecutive Targa Florio races from 1925 to 1929, many major Grand Prix events and hundreds of wins in many less prominent races. T35 debuted at 1924 ACF Grand Prix, and Gran Premio do San Sebastian was the next race, where Ettore Bugatti’s drivers Jean Chassagne, Meo Costantini and Pierre de Vizcaya proved the capabilities of the new car.
