WORLDS RAREST CLASSIC CARS - 1927 BUGATTI ROYALE TYPE 41 - NOTE HUGE TIRES AND RADIATOR CAP!

The Bugatti type 41 known as Bugatti Royale was produced in 1927-1933. Made only 6 from originally planned 25, Bugatti Royale is now one of the rarest cars in the world. Bugatti firstly intended to sell the Royale cars to royalties, as the cars’ name suggests. However, even royalties could not afford to buy such luxurious cars in time of Great Depression. Only 3 of 6 cars finally managed to find their buyers, none of them were royalties.

The Royale is a large luxury car with a 4.3 m (169.3 in) wheelbase and 6.4 m (21) length. It weighs about 3175 kg (7000 lbs) and uses a 12.7 L (12 763 cc/778 in ³) straight-8 engine.

By comparison, the Royale is about as heavy as a large, modern commercial pickup and a Ford Super Duty F-450, but it is about 10% longer. In the modern Rolls-Royce Phantom is compared, it is more around 20% and more than 25% heavier.

Design

The Type 41 was invented by Bugatti as an answer to the comments of an English lady who compared his cars unfavorably with those of Rolls-Royce.

The prototype had a nearly 15-liter engine. The production version, the stroke of 150 mm (5.9 in) reduced to 130 mm (5.1 in) has a capacity of 12.7 liters. The engine is a large block was built, and (4.5 ft. APX. (1.4 m) long x 3.5 m (1.1 ft) high), is one of the largest automotive engines ever made, producing 205-223 kW (275-300 hp). His eight-cylinder, 125 mm (4.9 in) drilled and with a stroke of 130 mm (5.1 in), each displaced more than the engine of the contemporary Type 40 touring car. (Two intake points: a trap) IT 3 valves per cylinder and had a centrally positioned single overhead camshaft driven. Nine camps were given for reliability, but only own a carburetor was needed. The engine was an aero-engine designed for the French Air Ministry, but never in this configuration is based.

The chassis was understandably great, with a conventional semi-elliptic leaf spring suspension system on front. On the back of the forward-looking Bugatti Elliptic quarterfinals by means of half set in front of the rear adds Massive pads were mechanically operated by cables. The brakes were effective, but without the power assistance required considerable energy of the driver. The car cast “Roue Royale” wheels measured 610 mm (24 inches) in diameter.

Reflecting some traditional forms of the time, whalebone knobs were presented for the driver, while the steering wheel was covered with walnut.

All Royales were built in different and unique bodies with a sculpture of an elephant on the top of the radiator. The elephant sculpture was made by Ettore’s brother, Rembrandt Bugatti.

Production

In 1928 Ettore Bugatti claims that “this year will be King Alfonso of Spain got its Royale,” but the Spanish king was deposed without ever having it, and the first of the Royales to find a customer was not delivered until 1932. The Royale which its basic chassis was priced of $ 30,000, was launched as the world economy collapsed in the year of 1930. Six Royales were built during 1929-1933, with only three sold to external customers. Ironically, none of the buyer was a royal. Bugatti even refused to sell one of the Royale to King Zog of Albania, claiming that “The man’s table manners are beyond belief!”

All six production Royales still exist (the prototype was destroyed in an accident in 1931) today. Each chassis has a different body and some have been rebodied several times.
