‘It’s a real hooli­gan’s car’

1924 Bu­gatti Type 13 Peter Livesey

Practical Classics (UK) - - YOUR CARS -

The brakes aren't so good but who needs them? My 1500cc four-cylin­der 16v Bu­gatti is far from shiny, but it drives with sur­pris­ing ve­loc­ity. The patina on the pan­els is all au­then­tic in­clud­ing the bon­net. I brought it back from Aus­tralia 30 years ago and want to keep things ex­actly as they are. I’ve been all over in it – from France to New Zealand and we’re off to a US rally soon. It’s a real hooli­gan. You have to be very care­ful on a slip­pery road though!

Orig­i­nal Type 13 is a driver's car.
