I think that this may be a Type 44, rather more touring than sporting, and certainly not as exquisite as a Type 41. Known in GB as "the Doctor's Bugatti", although all the doctors I know seem to drive Mercedes.

This is the first Type 41 Royale when it had the Packard tourer body on it. Note that the lines don't match. Some research will tell us the chassis number and the type of body it subsequently received.

So this would be Type 41 but not 'Royale'? The prototype carried a Packard body, later replaced with a custom body. All Royales would have custom coachwork. http://news.therecord.com/article/510410

It is indeed the Bugatti 41 prototype with its first body, which came off a Packard Open Tourer. The chassis is still extant, with its present, fifth body, the Coupé du Patron which is in the (Schlupf)museum in Mulhouse

It is chassis number [41.100], so the very first Type 41 Royale, from 1926. Indeed it had five different bodies. The Packard body was only used because Ettore Bugatti wanted to try his new chassis and didn't want to wait until a coach-built body was ready. Then it had a Coupé Fiacre body (or Coupé Napoléon), then a 4-door sedan body with oval 'opera' windows in the C-pillar, then a 2-door saloon with (fabric) Weymann body, and then the still existing Coupé de Ville body (Coupé du Patron). It was originally intended to be sold to the Spanish king Alphonse XIII, hence the nickname Royale, but at the end the king decided to buy a Duesenberg. Never a Royale was sold to any royal...

Does anyone know who were the coach builders for bodies no 2 & 3 for the Chassis 41100. The first, as mentioned above, was the Packhard, the fourth was by Weymann and the last, the Coupe de Ville, I think, was by Bugatti's. I am doing some research on the Royales so any info would be much appreciated.

Body 2 and 3 were Ettore Bugatti designed, and built in Molsheim. Both were old fashioned, very high and removed after a very short time as fashion dictated a low car.
