17. Bugatti T35 1926–1930 France

The Type 35 was Bugatti’s most successful racing car ever built. Manufactured in France between 1926 and 1930, it won over a thousand races, including the Grand Prix Championship in 1926, after setting 47 records in the two years prior to that. In its hay day the Bugatti Type 35 was winning an average of 14 races a week. The T35’s arch-shaped radiator, which was based on the Type 13 Brescia, became a hallmark of Bugatti. Though the car was only manufactured for a short time, replicas are popular. Other models of Bugatti’s are also popular, but none left a mark on the racing world the way the Type 35 did.
