The Australian registration issued to a type 30 (4724) which Dr. Stuart Sauders imported from the UK in the mid-seventies. He retained the car until 1990 when it passed to Dr. Morison in the UK. It was then issued with the registration DV 5705.

A registration issued in Victoria, Australia to a type 23 assmbled by Bob King in Australia using parts provided by David Roberts after car 2569 was destroyed in an accident. The chassis frame is of a two-wheel brake type and had been found by Gavin Campbell in around 1960. It was fitted with engine no. 892 from car 2526 (but it is noted that the crankcase has been overstamped with the no. 2566). A chassis plate with the UK BOC serial no.1002 was issued to King for this car stamped on the front “BC 002”, The UK BOC does not record when this plate was issued but it is assumed it took place around late 1976 or early 1977. The car was fitted with an attractive three-seater boat-tail body of 1922 design built by Harry Donders. The project was completed in 1978 and the car competed in the Australian Bugatti Rally in Canberra in that year. In the 2006 publication “The Bugatti Book” (p.334-5) it is noted that Kings ownership continued until 1995.
