1928 Bugatti Type 35A Recreation

The Type 35 was the most successful of racing models produced by French high-performance car maker The Bugatti, and here's a less expensive version of the Type 35. It's a Bugatti type 35A built in 1928. Originally The factory's Type 35A name was ignored by the public, who nicknamed it "Tecla" after a famous maker of imitation jewelry. The Tecla's engine used three plain bearings, smaller valves, and coil ignition like the Type 30. While this decreased maintenance requirements, it also reduced output. 139 of the Type 35As were sold and this one of them, so it's a rare car today.
