I would like to thank you for your letter of March 22, 1936. It is an honor to hear that you are so interested in this car. When you're better, we'll talk again.

Ettore Bugatti

At the age of 18, Ettore Bugatti (1881 - 1947) began to participate in car and motorcycle races in the northern Italy where he was born, thus developing his taste for speed. At the same time, the future entrepreneur builds his first car, awarded at the Milan International Automobile Fair, and attracts the attention of investors and partners. In 1909, the Bugatti company was officially created in Alsace, in the northeast of present-day France, then under German rule.

An engineer raised by a family of artists, Bugatti searched his entire life for beauty in the design of his cars, true works of art. He and his son, Jean Bugatti, patented more than 475 inventions with the motto "nothing is too beautiful, nothing is too expensive" transforming the small factory into a legendary luxury brand, rival to Ferrari, both on the race tracks (10,000 victories , 37 records) as in the hearts of collectors. The Bugatti Veyron and Chiron are currently the fastest and most expensive sports cars in the world, reserved only for a privileged few.

Letters from the founders of large emblematic luxury brands are valued by collectors when they are not preciously preserved by families or foundations. This example, in addition to Ettore Bugatti's large and beautiful signature, is also interesting because he talks about cars, in poorly mastered French, perhaps with the aim of winning over a future customer.
