June 1995 - Bugatti Classic Hill Climb

The 'bebe' Peugeot built under license from Bugatti.

Type ?? undergoing restoration. One type of Bugatti clutch had no springs but an over-centre toggle to press the plates together and this type can be seen here. The mechanism is a masterpiece - it can be engaged and disengaged with the pressure from a little finger but could handle the power of a GP car.
