Bronze statue Ettore Bugatti

©Office de Tourisme Région Molsheim-Mutzig

In the Jesuit Square stand two bronze statues. One of them is Ettore Bugatti (1881-1947), made in 2000 to celebrate the Centennial of the man's arrival in Molsheim and Dorlisheim.
He was a designer of innovative motorcars, not only mechanically speaking but also aesthetically. Between 1909 and 1939, Bugatti created around 80 different kinds of cars and filed no less than 1200 design patents for land, sea and air vehicles.
The second statue is a copy of the legendary "Type 35" Grand Prix, built in 2009 by François Chevalier. The original car, with its simple yet elegant and efficient body shape, rolled off the assembly line in 1924.
