Last Call- Size Matters Edition

Winthorpe enjoyed the attention his Bugatti Royale Esder roadster garnered, but lamented that it did detract from people noticing his argyle socks, about which he was equally proud.

    Snark. That's actually Jean Bugatti, Ettore's eldest son, who helped design the Royale and subsequent Bugattis. He was killed while driving a Type 57 race car during a test in 1939. He was only 30 when he died and Ettore never really recovered from the loss. Jean designed the roadster body on this Royale while barely in his 20s – he has every reason to look proud.

      He parks like a douche.
      Apologies to all the other refugees from that other place. It just felt right.

        Wow. I had no idea Pee Wee Herman got his look from such a pedigreed source.

    Note that this Royale is missing headlights. The owner didn't like driving at night.

      The British had it right all along– "a gentleman does not motor about after dark."

            You need "headlights" to motorboat.

      Probably can't see over that hood anyway. Just drive by feel.

    It makes the Blastolene Brothers seem far less imaginative.
