Bugatti was a French car manufacturer , founded in 1909 in the then German . Bugatti cars were known for their design , beauty and for their race victories . The death of Ettore Bugatti in 1947
proved to be the end for the make of cars , and the death of his son Jean Bugatti in 1939 ensured there was not a success to lead the factory . No more than about 8100 cars were made . The company struggled so much , and released one last model in the 1950s , before eventually being purchased for its airplane parts in the 1960s . Today the name is owned by German automobile manufacturing group Volkswagen . The death of Ettore Bugatti's son , Jean Bugatti on 11 August 1939 marked a Wrong Turning Point in the company's fortunes . Jean died while testing a race car ! The Important models for Prototypes are 8 , racing cars are 11 and last but not least road cars are 10 . Racing cars had the most than road cars and prototypes are so-so . Only in 2008 Bugatti company raised 120 million . Can you believe it on YEAR .
