Ahh the culture of motorized sports. What an incredible phenomenon. I bet the evolved alien species share the very same passion, plowing through our earthly skies in weird trajectories. I wonder if they can relate to us in a way that would be similar to that in which we relate to our own species in retrospect? Culture, that meaningful, perceivable quality of context. Are you not a broad, magnificent gift, employed in casual situations, as well as those important decisions that form the core of our life plan? To some of us its about strict adherence to a chosen direction, others allow more play. Whichever it is, the experience of it is most likely known to be enhanced by an automobile.
Clearly, since the first steam-powered carriage, the cars have seen alot of change. No wonder, compared to the vehicles of today, supercars of the 1930s come off as almost medieval and a bit steam-punk with their vintage gauges, simple down to earth mechanics, including cable-driven drum brakes and spoke wheels. So how can the performance be so extraordinary, how can the ride so exhilarating? The answer might have to do with Ettore Bugatti’s love of horses. It seems this car spells that horseback riding sensation of intimacy that comes from a driver’s uninhibited relation with the vehicle and the elements of nature, be it wind, earth or the supercharged fiery heart of the Bugatti that goes by the name Type 37A. But hey, don’t take my word for, check out the video and see for yourself.
