This new book, the first in the CarCraft series delivers an innovative presentation to the car enthusiast by covering the engineering, design, and modelling of one of motoring's greatest cars across all its epochs.

Ettore Bugatti changed engineering history with his genius and innovations. With its clever engine design, new suspension thinking, and distinct body style, Bugatti's T35 and its variants defined a new era of design and driving and must surely rank as true 'supercars'. A motor sport legend was also cast down by these Bugattis.

Experienced automotive writer, industrial designer and Bugatti Owners Club member Lance Cole pays tribute to the car in a detailed yet engaging commentary. New photography, the design story, and full coverage of the modelling options in synthetic materials and die cast metals, create a narrative of vital interest.

This book may only run to 64 pages but it packs a lot in, looking in detail at the car's minutiae.

"Highly recommended to car modellers and auto enthusiasts."

Octane, March 2020

This book may only run to 65 pages but it packs a lot in, looking in detail at the car's minutiae - for example, the wheels having 24 or 32 screws depending on date and specification - and various offshoots. There's a focus on motor sport and a surprisingly lengthy section on scale models. Image reproduction - even the historic ones - is crisp and clear.

Richard Gunn, Classic Car Weekly 22 January 2020

Profusely illustrated throughout, "Bugatti T and Its Variants: Type 35 Grand Prix Car and its Variants" is a truly extraordinary and unreservedly recommended addition to personal, professional, community and academic library Automotive History collections in general, and Bugatti automotive studies lists in particular.

Midwest Book Review

Lance Cole has written a book that is a great starting point for a series that will be successful and to learn more about this jewel that still races through the roads of various countries in races dedicated to her. The author's book (which is a member of the Bugatti Owner's Club and the Bugatti Trust) at 64 pages is just a starting point to get to know better and become passionate about this fantastic car, but it is a great starting point.

An enthusiastic, fact-stuffed, high-value 64-pager from a man who knows Bugatti's inside out. Entertaining too.
