The car was owned by Glen Kidson and was the first Grand Prix Bugatti to compete in England (Brooklands) where wire wheels were fitted and type 37 brakes as deviation from the factory blade cast aluminium wheels.

Charlie Dean became involved with racing after the wartime. He wanted to build his own racing car and the first thing to do was find a suitable engine. A friend who owned a war surplus wrecking yard had a ‘Demag’ half-track armoured personnel carrier which was powered by a Maybach 6 cylinder 3.8 litre SOHC, cross flow engine.
