A world famous Bugatti is to make a rare and special appearance at an event later today.

The Works 59/50B Bugatti will be featured at the Prescott Hillclimb as part of the Bugatti Owners’ Club 90th anniversary celebrations.

It hasn't appeared at Prescott in 80 years, when legendary driver Jean-Pierre Wimille was behind the wheel in 1939.

Chris Rogers, general manager of the Bugatti Owners’ Club said: "We are delighted that the Works 59/50B Wimille Bugatti will make an historic return to Prescott.

"The Bugatti Owner’s Club and Prescott Hill Climb have played a significant role in the history of the car and its famous French driver Jean-Pierre Wimille.

"The car will be on display at the Bugatti Trust as part of their Summer Exhibition ‘Jean Bugatti and Jean-Pierre Wimille – Prescott 80 years ago’ which will run until September 2019’."

The historic car is on loan from the Cité de l’Automobile, national museum in France.
