This is a list of prototype vehicles created by Bugatti which never reached full production.

==Type 36==<!-- This section is linked from Bugatti -->The Type 36 racer, produced in 1925, introduced a new 1.5&nbsp;L (1493&nbsp;cc/91&nbsp;in³) straight-8 engine. With a 60 by 66&nbsp;mm bore and stroke, the engine later found a place in the Type 39A, though the Type 36 project was more of an experiment.

The engine, a 3-valve SOHC design, was based on the 3-valve straight-8 from the Type 35. Two versions were made: A 3.0&nbsp;L (2986&nbsp;cc/182&nbsp;in³) version fitted to a Type 47 prototype shared the Type 36's 60 by 66&nbsp;mm dimensions, while the Type 45 prototype used a unique 84&nbsp;mm stroke for 3.8&nbsp;L (3801&nbsp;cc/231&nbsp;in³). Output would have been 200 to 250&nbsp;hp (149 to 186&nbsp;kW) with a Roots-type supercharger in play.

The entire vehicle was unique, including its chassis. The Type 45 used a 102.2&nbsp;in (2596&nbsp;mm) wheelbase, while the Type 47 was stretched to 108.3&nbsp;in...
