A Rare Glimpse into the Private Passions of Le Patron, Ettore Bugatti

Have a similar car that you would like to put up for an auction?

Perhaps as respite from the immense responsibilities Ettore Bugatti faced in the creation and racing of his legendary automobiles, Le Patron was known to be an avid equestrian. Over the years, he had several horse-drawn carriages built to his own design for use on the family’s estates. The carriage presented here is a beautiful wagon in its natural wood finish which features a large bed area for the movement of supplies on the grounds of his chateaus.

The carriage features Bugatti’s EB logo on wooden components and fittings, and its accompanying file cites ownership by the Bugatti family, and later passing to Roland Bugatti and his companion Jacqueline Pouquet. In subsequent ownership, the carriage was displayed at a museum in Provence, before being acquired by the Mullin Collection in 2008.

Ettore Bugatti stands as a true legend in the automotive world, and this exquisite carriage bearing his monogram provides an insight into his recreational passions.
