The colour signals, that this racer should be of German origin?

My source just told me that it was a Bugatti 22, but I can't rule out that it might have been a Rabag-Bugatti.

Apparently this vehicle has survived!  It became known as the "AVUSBUGATTI" after it had been clothed with this body by J.W. Utermohle of Koln.

The surviving "Avusbugatti" surely has a different, much simpler bodywork. Maybe it is the same chassis. But you are right that the puzzle car is a Bugatti 22 with coachwork by Utermöhle. The Cologne branch of Utermöhle already went bankrupt in 1913, so this must have been done by the Hildesheim branch of Utermöhle.

Never heard of that car or seen in action with this special body. Any ideas who drove that in her active times ?

Unfortunately not. I just came across this picture in the sales ad for the "Avusbugatti" special.
