The Type 52 is a small version of the T 35 Grand Prix car for children.
Originally it was designed to be used by Ettore Bugattis son Roland, who was born in 1922. Even some competitions became fashionable for the children of wealthy parents to race against one another on the Summer promenades of the chic seaside spa resorts with their “Baby”. Not in one of the official works brochures the “Baby” is named as T 52. It was known as the “Baby” only.
