Synopsis by Rose of Sharon Winter
America's love affair with the automobile started with Henry Ford and his Model T. The list of vehicles has much expanded, with multifarious makes and models claiming a loyal following. This program is part of a series from the History Channel that celebrates some of the driving machines that have captured the imagination of the buying public. This episode celebrates the incomparable Bugatti. Archival film clips, photographs, and an interview with the man whose name appears on the ultimate luxury car tell a story of striving for excellence, inspired by an artist's sensibility. The Bugatti remains a symbol not only of wealth, but of workmanship, in a class by itself.
