The Bugnaughty by Delahaye USA

Published May 26, 2015

Created by Delahaye USA, the Bugnaughty combines the classic styles of Auburn, Delahaye and Bugatti to incorporate the timeless designs and features of the world’s most beautiful cars onto a single platform.

“The original 1929-’36 Auburn Boat-tail Speedster body designs came from Alan Leamy and Gordon Buehrig’s unheralded clay modeler Vince Gardner. Chip Foose designed the fiberglass body for Deco Rides in 1999.

The fully enclosed ‘pontoon’ fenders were inspired by those originally appearing on a 1935 Type 135 Figoni & Falaschi Delahaye. They are from the Generation Two Deco Rides boat-tail kit. The steel grille and shell are replica 1937 Type 57S Bugatti capped off by a beautiful Hispano Suiza ‘flying stork’ reproduction hood ornament. The rocket style taillights are 1937 Hudson hood ornaments turned around 180 degrees to face backwards, a fitting sculpture to capture both elegance and sense of speed. The eight custom tailpipes splaying out beneath the two rear ‘wings’ hints at the Bugnaughty’s performance possibilities. The car respectfully pays tribute to the Bugatti name, and the timeless styling of Figoni & Falaschi.”
