Bugatti Coupe Type 44 from 1927, eight cylinders, 2992 cc, 80 HP, 140 km/h

The early Bugatti 8-cylinder line began with the 1922 Type 30. The same basic design was used for the 1926 Type 38 as well as the Type 40, Type 43, Type 44, and Type 49.

The Type 44 was the widest-production variant of this range, with 1,095 known. A larger and sometimes enclosed tourer, it used a new 3-valve SOHC 3 L (2991 cc/182 in³) engine derived from the Type 43’s unit. It was built from late 1927 through 1930.
