Another superb car to be present, that of the superb Alfa Romeo 8c 2900 B Berlinetta Touring #412035 of Jon Shirley, who was crowned Best of Show at Pebble Beach in 2008. It did not come on Italian soil since 1947.

Better dream of the Williamson car. The Lauren car is not not any longer as Molsheim
meant it to be and it would be a shame if it won best of show.

Can we say that the Lauren car by now is a full replica? :lol:

Or is that too much of an insult? :mrgreen:

However, the guy owns a Veyron as well, that should be sufficient comment in it's own right! :twisted:

We could, however, borrow the car in the time between Villa d'Este and Molsheim, and "patinise" it a bit... :lol:

they might have to be back in Carmel in August, so keeping them here for 5 months might be difficult
besides ralph won't be at Villa, the car will be taken care of by Paul Russel just as when they showed the Merc Trossi there
he does show up at Pebble
so it's going to be difficult to ask for the keys then :lol:

Everyone here knows my bias is towards Jon's 2.9 Alfa. Fantastic car without question! I was surprised to hear it being entered for Villa d'Este as it is a "driver" now -- ie: it gets driven on the road. (I know Jon retired the car from "shows" after PB so thus the surprise) Probably 2500+ US miles since winning Pebble Beach this year and it really does get used. Too bad Villa d'Este doesn't have a 200 mile "TOUR" that would be mandatory before showing itself -- I know the Alfa would make it without problems even being driven very hard along the route.

100 years of Bugatti – four specials for Villa d’Este

As part of the events marking the centenary of the brand, Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. will present four special models of the Bugatti Veyron during the Villa d’Este Concorso d’Eleganza weekend of 25/26 April. They are meant to recall Bugatti’s glorious racing history, which played such a pivotal role in raising the brand profile and fostered the legendary image that Bugatti enjoys today.
The four Bugatti Veyron models sport the racing colours of the relevant countries: blue for France, red for Italy, green for Britain and white for Germany. All four cars have an immediate “predecessor” in the shape of a Bugatti type 35 – the brand’s most successful racing car – lining up alongside the corresponding new model. These four historic 35s represent the generation of the legendary Bugatti Grand Prix racers that recorded countless victories in the 1920s with world-famous racing drivers at the wheel. The names of four of these drivers are bywords for these achievements, and it is after them that today’s Veyron “successors” have been named: Jean-Pierre Wimille for the blue Veyron, Achille Varzi for the red, Malcolm Campbell for the green and Herrmann zu Leiningen for the white model.
The owners of these four Type 35 models enthusiastically declared themselves willing to take part in this project. “We made every effort to transfer the defining attributes of the historic race cars to the modern Veyron models,” stresses Alasdair Stewart, Director Sales & Marketing Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “The colours, for example, have been faithfully mixed based on the originals, and the shade of the relevant interior upholstery is meticulously reflected in the leather of these new specials.” The upshot of this collaboration is a spectacular bridging of the brand’s racing past and the current state of Veyron production. The eight vehicles will be unveiled for the very first time on Sunday and will line up at Villa Erba side by side – four pairs in the same four colours.

:mrgreen: :D
