The Bugatti Type 51 was Bugatti’s leading race-car throughout the 1930’s. The model above (transported by United Routes) was produced within the 1st year of the T 51 production – 1931.
This model took over the famous Bugatti Type 35’s. While the race-car did not fair too well against its German and Italian race-car competitors it eventually was beloved simply for it’s style. To be fair, the German and Italian race-car manufacturers had significant financial backing from their respective governments giving it a nice leg up on pretty much anyone else in the game. But as well know money cannot buy finesse and Bugatti is in a league of its own in that department.
Back in 2010 RM Auctions tried to auction a T 51 expecting between 3.5 and 4.5 million. The car did not sell that day as the high bid was only (sarcasm much?) 2.75 million.
The car posted above was shipped from Utah to Colorado for service and maintenance.
Did you know all Vipers have a V10 engine along with manual transmission? V10! I want one! After a (smart, if i may add) new purchase we were able to provide George with an enclosed car transport from Arizona to Colorado. Speaking of Colorado, ever heard of the High Plains Raceway? It’s an amazing road racing facility, I sure hope George swings his gorgeous 2001 Dodge Viper over there.

United Routes was able to ship this 2009 Rossion Q1 in an enclosed trailer from California to North Carolina.
As you can see from the above pictures George’s car ain’t your typical street beast.
The Rossion Q1 is a product of Ian Grunes and Dean Rosen’s commitment to fusing luxury, design and sporty power. While still difficult to come by, back in 2011 a used Rossion Q1 was selling out of NJ for only $63,999. A recent offer we found was for $78,000 with under 1000 miles driven.
It’s been noted by roadandtrack.com “Cottage-industry coupe has the power-to-weight chops to take on a Ferrari F430.” Considered to be one of the lightest cars in its class with a weight-to-power ratio of 6.3:1.

“You said your car is in New Jersey? You need it in California next week? what? An enclosed auto transport? No problem, consider it done.” That was pretty the United Routes side of the conversation with Bill. He was finally ready to showcase his 1927 zipper track roadster at the Rolland Racing Museum and guess who was perfect for the job. That’s right United Routes – Offering the best in classic auto transport services.
This beaut featured a fully customized dash setup says previous owner Bruce. “I hinged a steel plate to the firewall which holes all the “electrics” (FI ECU, fuse and relays, signal flasher,etc…). When it’s closed (using 4 wing nuts) the underside holds the transmission shifter, ignition/headlight switches, high/low beam, horn button, signal and heated seat switches.The speedometer is a Haines 5 in one, all in one cluster. All controls become hidden except for the signal switch.”
Race cars you say? We’ll give you race cars! How about the Ferrari F142 from the Krohn racing team – shipped by United Routes via an enclosed car transport through the state of Texas. This 465bhp V8 beast has got some history to back itself up too. After 12 grueling hours at the Sebring Internation Raceway, Andrea Bertolini, Krohn team driver was able to place 4th in this championship race. “I drove the car for nearly three hours at the end. The team did a really unbelievable job, especially in terms of strategy and pit stops. At the end, the car had good balance, and I think it was on the top for us having a 2012 car.”
The next scheduled event for the Krohn team is the Continental Tire Sports Car Festival at the Mazda Raceway Laguna Seca. May 4th Salinas, CA Any race car in this event is definitely going to require an enclosed auto transport. Race cars do not take any chances of getting dirt or dust in those powerful bodies.

We’re dealing with a piece of race car history and we give that the respect it deserves.
