Footnotes

  • The car offered here is a scaled-down replica of one of the greatest Grand Prix cars of all time: the Bugatti Type 35, which in its various forms would go on to become arguably the most successful racing car of all time, commencing with winning the inaugural World Championship for Manufacturers in 1926 and securing countless victories for privateers.

    Its racing history and the Type 35's wonderful design inspired a German enthusiast - passionate about cars from the 1920s and '30s - to build a scale-model of the Bugatti. Hand built in 2018, the result is a wonderful replica of this most famous racing car. Around 2.8 metres long, it is powered by a 9 horsepower petrol engine with electric starter, while other noteworthy features include adjustable pedals, wood-rim steering wheel, rack-and-pinion steering, disc brakes, working front lights, chain final drive, and a tool kit. The seat and interior are upholstered in buffalo leather, while the special Bugatti-style wheels are handmade. The baby Type 35 can reach speeds of up to 50km/h, with brisk acceleration.

    Capable of being driven by adults as well as children, this unique miniature motor car has the potential to be an attention-getting artefact worthy of display in any collector's garage, living room, showroom, or company offices; or it could be used simply for having fun.

    Bugatti Type 35 pour enfants 2018

    •Construite à la main en 2018 par un amateur allemand
    •Moteur essence de 9 chevaux
    •Longueur 2,80 mètres
    •Objet exceptionnel

    Cette voiture est une réplique à échelle réduite de l'une des plus grandes voitures de Grand Prix de tous les temps, la Bugatti Type 35, qui dans ses différentes versions est devenue la voiture de course sans doute la plus couronnée de succès de tous les temps, à commencer par sa victoire au Championnat du monde des constructeurs lors de la première édition de 1926, suivie d'innombrables succès entre les mains de particuliers.

    Le palmarès et le merveilleux style de la Type 35 ont donné l'envie à un amateur allemand, passionné des voitures des années 1920 et 1930, d'en construire une version à échelle réduite. Il en est résulté une magnifique réplique de cette voiture de compétition renommée, exécutée à la main en 2018. Elle fait environ 2,80 mètres de long et est équipée d'un moteur à essence de 9 chevaux avec démarreur électrique. Parmi ses autres caractéristiques à retenir figurent un pédalier réglable, un volant à jante en bois, une direction à crémaillère, des freins à disque, un éclairage avant, une transmission par chaîne et un jeu d'outils. Elle a les sièges et l'intérieur garnis de cuir de buffle, et ses roues dans le style Bugatti sont faites à la main. Cette baby-Type 35 atteint les 50 km/h, avec de vigoureuses accélérations.

    Cette voiture miniature exceptionnelle, qui peut être conduite par des adultes aussi bien que par des enfants, a tout pour être un objet accrocheur digne d'être exposé dans le garage, le salon, la vitrine ou les bureaux de tout collectionneur. On peut aussi la conduire juste pour le plaisir.
