    My wife pulled this from her box of family photos; it is her ex husbands grand mother in what we believe to be a Bugatti. Can someone here help to ID the car in the pic? Many thanks.

    any idea on where or when the pic was taken?

    looks like maybe a Delahaye?

    Thanks, Guy.

    Checking to see if there's a date on the back. She and her husband died in early 1938, so there's that.

    Edit, nothing on back except for a name and Bugatti.

    The unusual shape of the headlights suggests, perhaps, Ruxton.

    However, a search of Ruxton images show just about all cars having disc wheels as opposed to wire-wheels seen on the mystery car. This car is also left-hand drive. Doubt it is a Bugatti as the grill doesn't have the "horseshoe"-shape typical of Bugs.

    It's not a Bugatti.
