But World War II soon gripped Paris, and Bugatti was forced to scuttle the project. The only 100P ever made never flew and was left to rot for a half century before eventually being restored to non-flying condition (it rests today on display in the EAA AirVenture Museum in Oshkosh, Wisconsin).
Fast forward to 2013, when a team led by former Air Force pilot Scott Wilson launched a Kickstarter project to create an airworthy 100P from scratch. At that time, construction was nearly complete, but Wilson needed more money to finish the project. "Reve Bleu" — Blue Dream — eventually raised a little over $62,000, and today, the new aircraft is nearly ready to take to the skies for the first time.
In recent days, the 100P has run its engines and performed taxi tests, and it looks amazing on the ground. It'll look even better from above. There's no word on exactly when that first flight will be, but some backers are going to have access to a live stream of it; in the meantime, you can see a video of it on the tarmac over on the Kickstarter project
