Description: 1930 Bugatti Baby
Châssis n° 388A

- Modèle rare et fidèle au Type 35
- Nom prestigieux
- État séduisant

A propos de cette voiture, nous avons pu obtenir d''intéressantes informations par l''intermédiaire des passionnés de la marque. Ainsi, bien qu''elle n''apparaisse pas dans les livres de l''usine, elle a été livrée neuve le 1er février 1930 à l''agent "Mondan et Wilson", à Paris, 14 rue Galvani dans le XVIIe arrondissement. En matière de Bugatti, cet agent Talbot avait surtout l''habitude de vendre des Type 44 et 46.
Cette Bugatti Baby a été achetée au début des années 1990 à Marc Nicolosi par Hervé Ogliastro. Elle avait précédemment été remise en état par un connaisseur qui en avait préservé l''état patiné qui fait son charme.
Ce modèle, souvent appelé à tort "Type 52" (ce qui correspondrait à une appellation attribuée par Hugh Conway), avait été créé en 1927 pour Roland, le fils cadet d''Ettore. Il sera finalement produit en petite série, avec un total d''environ 90 exemplaires. Il s''agissait d''une maquette à l''échelle 1/2 du Type 35, mue par un moteur électrique alimenté par une batterie 12 volts et relié par une couronne dentée à l''essieu arrière. Une pédale d''accélérateur commandait un rhéostat et la petite voiture filait à près de 18 km/h.
Ce jouet historique et très fidèle sera en bonne place dans toute collection Bugatti ou auprès d''un amateur exigeant de maquettes automobile.



Chassis n ° 388A

- Rare and a true replica of the Type 35
- Prestigious brand name
- In an attractive condition

We were able to get interesting information on this car through the enthusiasts of the marque. Although it does not appear in the books of the factory, it was delivered new on 1 February 1930 to the dealer "Mondan and Wilson" in the 17th arrondissement in Paris. This Talbot dealer was mostly selling Types 44 and 46.
This Bugatti Baby was bought in the early 1990s by Hervé Ogliastro, from Marc Nicolosi. It had previously been restored by a connoisseur who had preserved its patina, giving the car its specific charm.
This model, often mistakenly called the "Type 52" (which would correspond to an appellation attributed by Hugh Conway), had been made in 1927 for Roland, the younger son of Ettore Bugatti. It would eventually be put into a limited number production, with a total of 90 units made. The scale is 1:2 of the Type 35, fitted with an electric engine powered by a 12-volt battery and connected by a toothed crown to the rear axle. An accelerator pedal controls a rheostat and the little car had a top speed of 18 km/h.
This historic and very faithful scale model toy will make a great addition to any collection of Bugattis or scale models and children''s cars.
