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 2.9 metres long, it is powered by a 6.5 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, easily disconnected battery, and a tool kit. The seat and interior are upholstered in leather, while the special Bugatti-style wheels are handmade. This baby Type 35 can reach speeds of up to 45km/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 voiture pour enfant 2018

    •Fabriquée à la main par un passionné allemand en 2018
    •Moteur à essence de 6,5 ch
    •2,9 mètres de long
    •Pièce unique

    La voiture proposée ici est une réplique à l'échelle de l'une des plus prestigieuses voitures de Grand Prix de tous les temps, la Bugatti Type 35, qui dans ses diverses variantes allait devenir sans conteste la plus titrée des voitures de course, commençant par remporter le championnat du monde des constructeurs en 1926 et s'assurant d'innombrables victoires aux mains de pilotes privés.

    Son historique en course et le magnifique dessin de la Type 35 ont inspiré un allemand passionné de voitures des années 1920 et 1930 qui a construit un modèle réduit de la Bugatti. Fabriqué à la main en 2018, le résultat est une superbe réplique de cette fameuse voiture de course. Mesurant environ 2,9 mètres de long, elle est animée par un moteur à essence de 6,5 ch avec démarreur électrique et fait appel à un pédalier ajustable, un volant à jante en bois, une direction à crémaillère, des freins à disque, des phares fonctionnels, une transmission par chaîne, une batterie facilement débranchable et une trousse à outils. Les sièges et l'intérieur sont garnis de cuir, tandis que les roues Bugatti spéciales ont été réalisées à la main. Cette baby Type 35 peut rouler à 45 km/h avec des accélérations fulgurantes.

    Pouvant être conduite par des adultes, tout aussi bien que par des enfants, cette voiture miniature unique est un objet propre à attirer l'attention lorsqu'elle sera exposée dans le garage, le salon, le showroom, ou le bureau de n'importe quel collectionneur. Elle peut aussi être utilisée simplement pour le plaisir.
