The 2023 exhibition is now open and celebrates ‘Over 30 Years of furthering Education through the Study of Ettore Bugatti’ which is at the core of the activities of The Bugatti Trust. Looking back over the last 30+ years of Bugatti Trust work and celebrating educational activities, archive stories and special moments of its past, the display includes cars that have played an important part in the Trust’s history starting off with a very special GP car and the Type 57 that played a key role at the official opening back in March 1990. The exhibition will run until Spring 2024 when the focus shifts to the important Bugatti centenary of the Type 35 and Lyon.
Founded over 30 years ago, the Bugatti Trust is a UK registered charity home to 27,000 technical drawings, over 10,000 historic photographs and thousands of historic documents.
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.
