The beauty of this aircraft is difficult to capture with a camera. Hopefully my meager attempt will be enough to pique some curiousity. Very unique shape and design. Twin engines amidship drive a pair of counter-rotating propellers. Three stabilizing surfaces on the tail, one housing the tailwheel. Restored by EAA and on display at their museum in Oshkosh (at Pioneer Airport).

Seems like respectable car makers all had a hand in aircraft making at some point in time.

Such a gorgeous aircraft. Impressive design for 1938. It is a shame it never flew. I am just glad to see it preserved.

What an exotic acft! Would be interesting to find out what its performance specs would have been if it had flown. But quite an intriguing looking bird.

Actually, the Design is French. Bugatti was a French Company (at the time); although Ettore was born in Italy, he had dual Citizenship (Italian & French), lived the main part of his adult Life in France and died in France.

This is very Spirou in its design. And incredibly cool.

WOW! I thought that the Spits was the most beautiful plane I had ever seen but this does way beyond the spitfire.
