In order to celebrate the achievements of Bugatti, a unique ‘Pavillon Bugatti’ gathered 13 rare and special icons in the heart of St. Moritz
Now in its eleventh year, the Passione Engadina in St. Moritz is one of the world’s most exclusive motoring events. It is a gathering of rare classic cars built up until 1992. And this year, the event celebrated the achievements of Bugatti with quite the spectacle of historic and modern hypercars, enticing all the senses.
In recognizing Bugatti as its featured marque, the Passione Engadina looked to Ettore Bugatti’s roots, born in Milan to a family of artists. He would later undertake a number of apprenticeships before establishing a company in his own name in France. His artistic upbringing and natural talent for engineering would lead Ettore to build some of the most beautiful and innovative cars of all time, and his vision continues to inspire Bugatti to this day. As he once said: “If comparable, it is no longer Bugatti.”
In order to celebrate the achievements of Bugatti, a unique ‘Pavillon Bugatti’ gathered 13 rare and special icons in the heart of St. Moritz. Furthermore, at the same time, a collection of Bugatti cars embarked on the Julius Baer rally along mountain roads and through the alpine passes of Bernina, Umbrail and Fuorn. In addiiton, the life story of Ettore Bugatti’s journey and the evolution of the brand were told to the attendees through a special exhibition located just outside the famous Kulm Hotel in St. Moritz.
The ‘Pavillon Bugatti’ displayed 13 cars, from the Type 1 Prinetti Stucchi – a motorized tricycle recognized as the first Ettore Bugatti-engineered project – to the track-only Bolide1 hyper sports car, scheduled for delivery to customers in 2024.
All of the cars were generously donated by Bugatti customers. The rare pieces of automotive history were on display until the 28th August, where the Pavillon Bugatti was open to the public, attracting nearly 20,000 visitors.
The full line-up of cars includes: Type 1 Prinetti Stucchi, Bugatti Type 13 Roadster, Bugatti Type 35 B, Bugatti Type 57 SC Atalante, Bugatti Type 55 Figoni, Bugatti Type 59 Sports, Bugatti Type 101 Antem, Bugatti EB110 Super Sport, Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 300+2, Bugatti DIVO3, Bugatti La Voiture Noire4, finished up with the stunning Bugatti Bolide as well.
