Rob Roy's Bibliography
BUGATTI LE REGARD DE ROB ROY
This book tells the adventure of Ettore Bugatti (1881-1947), of its beginnings in a family of artists to its victories at the 24 hours of Mans, through the many watercolours that Rob Roy devoted to this genius of the automobile sport. Each table is replaced in its historical context, and the style of Rob Roy translates speed, the movement of the cars, as well as the environment which reigned on the circuits of the time.
