Bugatti Type 13 Brescia 1914, 1919-1926

The first Bugatti Type 13 was built in 1914. The World War interrupted the industrial activity and it is in 1919 that manufacturing restarted. For the 1921 racing season, a development of the 16 valves was produced featuring a built-up ball-bearing crankshaft, roller bearing connecting rods and twin magneto ignition, which secured an outstanding victory on the 8th September 1921 in Brescia when the four team cars of Friderich, De Viscaya, Baccoli and Marco took the first four places in the most important voiturette race of the season. Friderich won in 2 hours 59 minutes and 18 seconds with an average speed of 116 kph.

Thereafter, the model became universally known as the Brescia. Many further victories followed. This famous little car established Bugatti as a legend and symbolized his phrase: "le poids, c'est l'ennemi" (Weight is the enemy). The Brescia, in all its versions was also the most successful Bugatti in terms of production numbers: over 2.000 were built, representing about 26% of Bugatti total output in 30 years.

Specification: Engine 4 cylinder, 1500 cc, output approximately 40 hp at 4.200 rpm; Transmission 4-speed; top speed 120 to 160 kph; Weight 450 to 600 kg.
