Justo Miranda, Jemiba, thank you. I've read the research of Mr.Hartmann with big pleasure.

And where did also the V-30 use?

This is the Bugatti 110 of 1938. It was soley designed as a racing plane, but was never flown, as the war intervened. However, the French saved the aircraft and later sold it to the US EAA organization. The P110 was proposed, but never flew. See http://www.secretprojects.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,1100.0/highlight,bugatti+110.html

Bugatti submitted and was approved for five patents in association with the Model 100. I've found three of them which are:

UK patent GB526460 (for the engine/drivetrain)
U.S. patent 2,268,183 (for the cooling method)
U.S. patent 2,279,615 (for the trailing edge flap system)

I am aware he received a patent for the V-tail arrangement but was unable to come up with it checking the European patent search engine (or the U.S. one). It was granted by France in April 1939. I don't know what the fifth patent was for. Bugatti sure put in a ton of patents!

Any ideas? Thanks!  :)

Hi all. I'm a little late to the thread but I hope you don't mind a little story. Please set me straight if this Yank is out of line.

I build/fly RC planes and have a stack of papers a couple inches deep of ideas and sketches of mostly unusual aircraft. I just can't do "normal" planes. I came up with the plane below about a year ago. After building somebody said it looks like a Bugatti. I never heard of it and was thinking, what is this Bugatti he speaks of. I suspect I saw a picture and only my subconscious remembered. I'm definitely not the type to steal credit for something I didn't come up with. Next stage in my evil plan is to build a more scale Bugatti and not just similar.

Picture 1 & 2 are two different planes. 2nd flew really well. 5 out of 5 on straight tracking. Let's just say the 1st flew.
Picture 3 is not mine.
Last video is a scratch built sloper I found online.

The Bugatti Aircraft Association have a short obituary (September 13th) up on the news section of their website regarding the passing of Jean Sibille, the last surviving member of the Bugatti 110P project team, on September 2nd, 2011, at the age of 87. RIP.

With all the modification to make the Bugatti fit for military use,  I am reminded of the Bf-209 (the speed record aircraft) that went down the same road.  By the time you make the aircraft and engine robust enough to be useful, you're left with an aircraft with little or no advantage over off the shelf contemporary fighters. 

Kim Margosein

On the other hand, since the intent was to create a pursuit and/or a 'chasseur reconnaissense' fighter, the design team might have ended up going with an approach similar to the Japanese Zero, i.e. sacrificing armor and firepower in return for speed, maneuverability and range/endurance. Although they probably would have given the 110P self-sealing tanks as long as the weight penalty wasn't too severe.

Interesting story.

Fortunately, someone is building a full-scale replica to fly.  I'll be curious to know if the design can really make it to 550 mph with fix-pitch props.  Lots of pictures on the project's Facebook page.   https://www.facebook.com/TheBugatti100pProject

Don't worry, it isn't often that easy ! The title of the older thread  was "Bugatti 110 fighter", but it mainly
dealt with the actually built 100.

There's a new book in the making about the Bugatti 100P.
'The Bugatti 100P Record Plane'
 Created by Etore Bugatti and Louis de Monge.

written by Jaap Horst-240pp
Due for publishing Jan. 2013 by Lanasta in the Netherlands.

Perhaps the definitive history about this beauty..
