The Mullin Automotive Museum is a Southern California institution devoted to the preservation of French art and automobiles from the Art Deco era. This comprehensive retrospective of the Bugatti family of artists showcases the museum’s more than 50 pieces of furniture by Carlo Bugatti, numerous sculptures by Rembrandt Bugatti, paintings by Carlo, and the largest private collection of Ettore and Jean Bugatti automobiles in the world.

This exhibition brings together dozens of Bugatti models including carriages; the early Brescia race car; the race winning Types 35, 37 and 51; Jean Bugatti’s Type 64 Papillon and Atlantic Coupé; Types 57 Aravis and Atalante, and the incomparable Type 41 Bugatti Royale. The collection also displays the unrestored Schlumpf Reserve Collection and the new generation of Bugatti automobiles culminating with the breathtaking, record-breaking Veyron.

The design and engineering breakthroughs incorporated over the course of the Bugatti marque’s existence are exposed and explored through drawings and factory artefacts, many unseen by the public prior to this time. The retrospective also includes an extensive overview of the Bugatti family’s influence on the automobile as art.
