I feel kind of stupid. I never really knew that Bugatti was French. I suppose I used to know in a vague sort of way. As in, if I were looking at some classics, like a Type 57, there would be some French feeling there.

It’s the Veyron that screwed me up. Being designed by Volkswagen, the Veyron is obviously German! Even the idea of it is so German. So, anyway, with the Veyron basically defining Bugatti these days, Bugatti has been German in my mind.

All cleared up now!

Here’s a Type 57 and a Veyron!
