I have been working on the scale drawings of the T67 V16 engine as published in http://www.bugattiaircraft.com
with the intention of rebuilding the look that the mythical Bugatti 110P could have had.
As per my estimations the installation of the T67 in the fuselage of a standard 100P requires the following modifications:
- The undercarriage wide track must be increased from 2960 to 3300 mm
- Wingspan must increase from 8235 up to 8684 mm
- Tailplane span must increase from 1410 to 1459 mm
- Overall length must be augmented from 7700 to 8333 mm
- Height should increase from 2122 up to 2188 mm
- Propeller disc diameter must increase from 1698 to 1896 mm.
- Vertical fin must increase from 994 up to 1038 mm length
The mod. 110P would have been an air superiority fighter equivalent to the Dewoitine D.520 T.
In my opinion it should have been armed with six MAC 34 A machine guns of 7.5 mm in the wings (similar installation to the D.520T) and a Hispano Suiza H.S. 404 gun of 20 mm with the ammunition stored in drums of 60 cartridges that the pilot could replace manually.
Given the decentralising policy of aeronautical production started by the French government in the last years of the decade of the thirties, it seems reasonable to assume that the Bugatti military version would have been propelled by an engine of the same firm and not by a Hispano Suiza HSY 45 which production had been kept for the Dewoitine D520 and Arsenal VG33.
I believe that the 110P would have a unique power shaft in central position located under the pilot seat http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic.1100.45.html
It should also have a flat windscreen to avoid the optical distortion when using the OPL RX39 gunsight http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic.1100.0/highlight.bugatti.html
Based on all these assumptions I will try to reconstruct the internal look that the 110P might have had and, if the whole thing looks convincing, I will also try to draw the external look.
