    Has anyone on fchat ordered the book The Last Bugatti Racing Cars? The book’s website says all 255 copies are sold out as of April 23, 2021. I emailed Horton’s Books in early January to reserve a copy. Wondering if anyone here did the same or have more information about the book.

    Same here, contacted Hortons and publisher directly on the website you mentioned above. Both with zero result.

    I emailed Ben Horton yesterday to check on the status. He replied today that I have an order in place for the book since I made the request before the deadline. Might be a good idea check back in with Hortons.

    The book should be released later this year, according to Ben Horton itself - last year they found some new materials and they decided to add it to the book.
    And yes, I preorder it in 2020 before Andy Massen left Horton's bookshop. I have a Le Man Edition book (#21 out of 110) reserved ever since.

    I think with a little more patience everything will be ok. Book will indeed be released later this year.

    Congrats on reserving a Le Mans edition. The blue cover looks stunning.

    Thank you so much @Zeltweg. At the time I preorder it, I had possibility to chose which one I would like the most - they send me some additional photos too.
    IMSA edition was/is wonderful too, but the classic blue was love at first sight for me! :)

    And what was your choice?

    It hasn’t been confirmed which edition I will get, but my preference is definitely the Le Mans edition. I indicated my preference to Hortons. However, I would be equally pleased with a silver cover IMSA edition.

    On the lastbugattiracingcars IG account Johann Petit told me that it will take some patience, but the book “will be atomic.”

    Amazing cars. I saw the silver car at Daytona 24 in 1996 and took this photo. Very fast on the banking passing almost everything until it hit the infield and everything tried to repass. Rather heavy compared to the prototypes.

    That’s a fantastic photo! Also, very cool to get a firsthand account of how it did at Daytona. Thanks for sharing.
