-      Descrive in dettaglio e con tutti i dati tecnici la storia completa del 100P, l'aereo progettato da Ettore Bugatti e Louis de Mon nel 1937 con  numerose innovazioni molto avanzate per il periodo,

-      la progettazione e la realizzazione dell'unico esemplare prodotto che sopravvive tuttora presso l'EAA Museo di Oshkosh, USA

The development of this extremely advanced airplane with many novel features was started in 1937, for which Ettore Bugatti had hired the Belgian Louis de Monge as chief engineer. The first version of the airplane was planned as a speed-record airplane, a military version was to follow later. Tragically the Bugatti 100P airplane never flew, the Germans invaded Paris where it was being built before it was 100% ready. The airplane surprisingly survived the war, and still exists in the EAA museum in Oshkosh, USA. Both engines exist, and were built into Bugatti race-cars. Currently a flying replica is being constructed in the USA, built in such a way, that it will be aerodynamically the same as the original. This book for the first time describes the complete history of this wonderfully beautiful streamlined airplane, as well as all of it's novel systems. Also, the histories of both the plane's creators are followed, from the early years of aviation.
