Many words are written about the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and how there are lots of crazy rally cars and trucks and whatnot flying up a hill. But I just want to appreciate this 1927 Bugatti Type 35B, which was absolutely flogged around the track like it should be.

Julian Majzub, a guy fairly well-known in vintage car and Bugatti circles, was living his best life as he swung the classic Bugatti around the bends, and my god does its 2.3-liter supercharged straight-8 engine sound just spectacular.


The Bugatti Type 35, in general, was a beastly racer back in its day, and only 45 of the Type 35B variant were ever made to begin with. I don’t care that it’s older than dirt and you have to make all sorts of flailing hand gestures just to drive it.

It’s made of French unicorns and history and magic, and I’m in love.
