Roland Bugatti, son of Ettore Bugatti, attempted a postwar comeback for the famous firm. He had stylist Louis Lepoix design a sedan body and contracted the German coachbuilder, Hermann Spohn for the execution in 1950. The car is based on a slightly modified Type 57 prewar chassis and was called the Type 101. One car built only in this body configuration.
It exists today at the Mulhouse museum
This design then had minor changes by Lepoix and became the early T-101 series produced by Gangloff with poor quality results it is written.

File comment: The Lepoix styled, Spohn coachbuilt 1950 Bugatti 100 on a slightly modified Type 57 chassis. Location appears to be the former Schlumpf collection and verified to remain in the National Auto Museum, Mulhouse.

File comment: Surely this front end from 1950 influenced the front of the Virgil Exner collaboration with Ghia for the C-200 concept through the Chrysler d'Elegance.
