The Bugatti Trust Will Celebrate 30 Years of Furthering Education through The Study of Ettore Bugatti

In 2020 The Bugatti Trust will celebrate its 30th anniversary this year with a number of special events and exhibitions with at all times the educational aims and objectives a priority focus.

A big end of year thank you goes to everyone who has helped make 2019 so special, whether you are a member, a visitor, a volunteer, a benefactor, a friend, an educational partner or an event sponsor, we could not do it without you!

A few 2019 highlights:

The Bugatti Trust is an independent Charitable Trust whose objectives are to preserve and make available for study the works of Ettore Bugatti..

The Bugatti Trust was formed in 1987 by the late Hugh Conway supported by a small group of Bugatti enthusiasts.

Hugh Conway was an acknowledged expert on Bugatti history and well known internationally through his books, other writings and personal contacts. His remarkable collection of period photographs, technical drawings, letters and articles form the basis of the Bugatti Trust archive which we continue to expand and develop.

Access to our archive was significantly enhanced in 1990 through the opening of our Prescott Visitor Centre by HRH the Duke of Edinburgh. Since then we have been able to put on display many examples of Ettore Bugatti’s work.

Our aim is to promote the works of Ettore Bugatti and to raise awareness of the importance of aesthetics and integrated design in engineering by his example.
