The name Bugatti is synonymous with the fastest cars on the planet, but a handful of fans still remember that founder Ettore Bugatti also had his mind set on a Bugatti racing aircraft. The Bugatti 100P aircraft is a project that continues to evolve all of these decades later.

Back in the 1930s, Ettore Bugatti developed a desire to engineer the best racing aircraft of the era. Unfortunately, the Bugatti racing aircraft project was forced on hold during World War II when Ettore had to flee Paris, France and take his aircraft with him. The project never left the ground, though enthusiasts have since kept the dream alive and worked toward completing what was started so long ago.
