Default Bugatti racing

Spotted this old Bugatti at our local car show this past Saturday. Not sure if it was original or a replica. Can anyone tell?

I note that the car has front disc brakes. The first car with disc brakes, I beleive was the Jaguar 120....back in '48 / 49. The tail light also doesn't look 'Buggati-esque' . I would say it was a replica, IMO.

Looking at it again...I see no provision for a front crank start. I think that's how this old model of Bugatti was started.
