1937 Bugatti Type 57 Compresseur (Supercharger) Engine Rebuild Time-Lapse

43w ago

This 1937 Bugatti Type 57 engine is brought back to life with the addition of a "Compresseur" (Supercharger) by Jim Stranberg of Stranberg Vintage Autos, LLC. Originally the 3.3 L T57 engine came from the Molsheim factory with a twin-cam 3,257 cc (198 cu in) Inline 8 cylinder producing 135 hp. With the addition of the "C" for "Compresseur" Roots-type supercharger the engine now produces close to 180 hp. It took months of work to fit the over 80 year old Bugatti engine with a "C" specification supercharger. Sit back and watch to the end to see and hear what a piece of automotive history sounds like running on the engine dyno.
