Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. makes some of the world's fastest and most expensive production cars. The Bugatti brand originally appeared at the beginning of the 20th century. A single-minded
focus on the pursuit of speed resulted in the brand's dominance of the Grand Prix circuit in the years between World War I and World War II. The traditional factory in the Alsace region of France closed in 1956,
several years after the passing of the firm's founder, Ettore Bugatti.
Volkswagen AG relaunched Bugatti in 1998 in Molsheim, France. The first contemporary production model, the Veyron 16.4, rolled off the assembly line several years later.
Bugatti is a wholly owned subsidiary of Volkswagen AG
