What does you do with a one-of-a-kind 1928 Bugatti grand prix racer? When you're Jay Leno, you maintain it to original condition, and you drive it on the open road - the way it should be.
Jay Leno is a walking encyclopedia of automotive historical knowledge. But when it comes to brands such as Lamborghini and Bugatti, Leno's passion for rare and high-performance cars truly shines. In this latest episode of his web series, Leno shows off his supercharged 1928 Bugatti Type 37A. The car was originally owned by Pierre Veyron, a Bugatti test driver, race car driver and World War II resistance fighter - and namesake to Bugatti's modern supercar.
This car was actually raced back in the day. Leno only made a few modifications to the car, but with those few exceptions, everything is entirely stock. It's truly a remarkable and one-of-a-kind car, and it's good to know that an enthusiast like Leno is its owner.
