The Bucciali was undoubtedly one of the strangest pre-war cars. It all started when the two brothers Paul-Albert and Angelo Bucciali wanted to buy a sports car. They were unable to find what they were looking for, however, and decided to build one themselves. The first models looked quite 'normal'. In 1922, they set up a small factory under the name of 'Bucciali Freres'. In 1932, the Bucciali brothers launched the TAV 30. This car had a 409cm wheel base. The biggest part of the car, however was the bonnet. It was to be the last 'outrageous' model. After this Bucciali started to focus on more usual models, such as the Bucciali-Mathis.
