The competition to win £150 to spend at Opie Oils is now closed and correct answer was [b]Bugatti Royale[/b]... so well done to everyone who answered correctly!
[i]There were only six Bugatti Type 41 Royal's ever made, first conceived in 1928 but the first Royal was not delivered until 1932.
The competition picture was taken by myself at the Schlumpf Museum in Mullhouse, France, where they have three Royal's; two originals and one replica. However, the replica - other than the body work - is made of original Royal parts purchased from Bugatti. The Elephant mascot in the competition picture sits on the grill of the Esders Coupe type 41 Royal, the replica and arguably the most beautiful. Google for more info.
The silver elephant mascot that sits on top of the radiator of the Bugatti Royal was cast from one of Rembrandt Bugatti's original sculptures (Rembrandt Bugatti was Ettore Bugatti's brother), Rembrandt Bugatti was an accomplished animal sculptor but killed himself in 1916, at the age of 31. His brother Ettore Bugatti (the car manufacturer) used the Silver Elephant on the Royal's in memory of his brother.

1st is [b]Stephen Coupe[/b], a member of 'Mistubishi Lancer Register' winning £150 to spend at Opie Oils.
