June 1991 - BOC Classic Hill-climb

Bugatti Owners Trust Study Centre

An unusual sight for the classic meeting - an MGB

Detail from a Type 35B - the 'B' indicates it is the 'blown' or supercharged version. The supercharger is the finned casting and sucks through the single Zenith or Solex carb blowing into the cylinders and an 'overflow' which exits through a hole in the bonnet cover. Made 1927-30. 8 cyl. in-line 3 valves/cyl. over-head cam. Engine size: 2262cc. Power: 135hp @ 5500rpm
