The Bugatti Type 35B

The Bugatti Type 35B marked the introduction of a supercharger to the Type 35 line of Grand Prix cars. The Type 35B was built alongside the Type 39, which was designed in accord with updated 1926 Grand Prix regulation imposing an engine capacity of 1.5-liters. Bugatti reduced the bore of the existing Type 35 engine and, to compensate for the smaller displacement, a Roots supercharger was added. The 35B began an era of blown Bugattis that would last until the Type 57.
