The Gelignite Bugatti
In 1925 two Type 39 Bugatti racing cars made their way to Australia.
Like all grand prix Bugattis the Aussie T39's became sought after by collectors and enthusiasts but while one was preserved, the other would have a Ford flathead V8 fitted, campaigned by enthusiast and engineer, Jack Day, then sold to larrikin racer Jack Murray.
It would be the stuff of legend and become the iconic Australian Special, the Day Special
The gelignite Bugatti.
