Our t-shirt with design of Bugatti 100P airplane, which we designed in context of our exhibition Back to the Future at Ještěd this summer, is on sale in our shop. The special plastic box an following text included.

Ettore Bugatti was not only the master creator of homonymous cars, but also an ardent conqueror of speed records on land, at sea, and in the air. Thus, his construction knowledge is necessarily reflected in the lesser-known project of the 100P airplane, which he developed in collaboration with Belgian engineer Louis de Monge in 1937 for the purpose of speed record breaking. The incredibly timeless structure and design of the airplane, constructed with counter-rotating propellers, were ahead of its time and surpassed the shapes of several jets by several decades. However, the only specimen that Bugatti managed to make was never put into operation due to the German invasion of France during WWII. Exhibited in the EAA museum in Oshkosh in the USA, it is a mere silent witness of the visionary ideas of the famous French designer.
