Lot 084: Teal Bugatti Replica

Classic & Vintage Cars & Motorcycles, Brightwells Auctioneers and Valuers (13 July 2011)

This Teal Bugatti Type 43 replica was built in 1979 using a 1971 Triumph 2000 as the donor car. It retains the 90bhp 2-litre straight-six engine of the donor, mated to a four-speed manual gearbox. Between 1998 and 2004 the car was off the road and in storage until it was bought by the current vendor's father. A Teal Owner's Club member, he used the car regularly on club events and rallies until his death last year.

It comes with a full set of weather gear including hood and sidescreens and is MOTd until June 2012. Said to be in good running order, it is due to be driven some 70 miles to the sale. Being registered as a 1971 car, it qualifies for free road tax. With the looks of a real Type 43 but at a tiny fraction of the cost, this nicely patinated lookalike should give its new owner plenty of fun over the coming summer months.
