This is a tribute/replica of the multi-million dollar Bugatti Type 35/37.
This car is a true head turner and a star at car shows. With the engine recently replaced and brakes completely rebuilt, it's also lots of fun to drive.
When I bought it last year, it was just another ridiculous looking VW-based replica that you can find on ebay/craigslist for 10k or less. Cheap/ugly parts, late-century wheels, hideous interior, etc... but it had a nice straight body so it was a good base to start on.
I invested a lot of time and money to make it look as close as possible to the original. You can actually get up close and look at the details without wanting to gag. Petrolicious shared one of the photographers photos of it on their Instagram until I told them it's a replica and they took it down (see last photo)
The list of things I've done to it is very long but here's what I can remember: 17" Moto-Lita steering wheel, genuine Brooklands windscreens, period 19" wire wheels/tires+spare (wheels were recently restored and in excellent shape), modified 10" Model T headlights, modified horseshoe grill(most time consuming), aluminum engine-turned dash with all new vintage style gauges, knobs, clock, dummy filler cap on the tail, safety wires all around, leather bag, aluminum footwell walls, added dummy crank handle, new bonnet straps, I pretty much got rid of everything other than the seats.
