Introducing the Bugatti Baby II: The new, “junior” member of the Bugatti family. Almost 100 years after the creation of its predecessor, the Bugatti Baby II has been developed using state-of-the-art technology, whilst paying tribute to Bugatti’s rich automotive heritage. Just like the original, this contemporary interpretation of Ettore Bugatti’s masterpiece is produced in a limited production run of just 500 vehicles. The Bugatti Baby II offers driving pleasure for Bugatti enthusiasts of all generations, along with the special flair of the classic Bugatti brand.
At three-quarters the size of the Bugatti Type 35, the Bugatti Baby II can be driven in two selectable drive modes by both adults and children. For speed enthusiasts who want even more performance, an optional Chiron-inspired “Speed Key” upgrade is available, which increases the power up to 10 kW and top speed to around 42mph / 68kph. The Bugatti Baby II features an electric rear-wheel drive powertrain with replaceable lithium-ion batteries, an adjustable pedal box and regenerative braking.
The vehicle’s bodywork is painted in traditional French Racing Blue, while the typical eight-spoke aluminum rims are true-to-scale replicas of Ettore Bugatti’s revolutionary design from 1924. The cockpit of the Bugatti Baby II features the signature Bugatti dashboard crafted out of turned aluminum, a luxurious leather seat, a faithful recreation of the signature Type 35 four-spoke steering wheel as well as custom Bugatti instruments replicating the original dash.
The smallest model in the Bugatti family has a lot in common with its bigger siblings. The famous Bugatti “Macaron” can be found proudly adorning the iconic horse-shoe shaped radiator on the Bugatti Baby II. It is forged from 50g of pure silver – just like the Chiron. Each vehicle of this limited series features an individually numbered chassis plate, the design of which was based on that of the Veyron.
In 1926 – on the occasion of the fourth birthday of Ettore Bugatti’s youngest son, Roland – Ettore and Jean built a 50% scale Type 35 named the Bugatti Baby. The miniature version was initially planned as a one-off, but the response from customers visiting the factory in Molsheim was so positive that the small vehicle became an official Bugatti model.
Loved by Bugatti enthusiasts around the world, a Bugatti Baby is an integral part of any complete Bugatti collection. However, with only about 500 vehicles manufactured, very few remain in the hands of some lucky collectors. Until now.
