|[20 Apr 10] :: Four unique Bugatti Prototype Show cars on display at the Mullin Automotive Museum|
|OXNARD, Calif. (April 15, 2010) â€“ Bugatti Automobiles is honored to announce the four prototype show cars that continued the brand on its path to create the most iconic super car in the world will be on display at the new Mullin Automotive Museum. Bugatti felt the Mullin Automotive Museum was the ideal place to display these rare cars because it is a benchmark museum that celebrates French culture and more importantly, the rich history of French automobiles. In the heart of Southern California, the museum is at the center of the most important market for Bugatti.|
There are many prestigious marques featured in the Mullin Automotive Museum. However, Bugatti is the only brand still producing cars today, so it was a logical choice for Bugatti to loan the four historic prototypes for display in his museum. Bugatti also shares some of its rare vehicles with the Schlumpf Museum in France, just miles from the Bugatti headquarters in Molsheim so it is beneficial to have a counterpart ambassador for the Bugatti brand in the U.S.
