Bugatti Baby II arrives in North America

Bugatti and The Little Car Company debut the limited-edition Bugatti Baby II in Southern California

Just in time for the holidays, the limited-series Bugatti Baby II has arrived in Southern California. This marks the vehicle’s first appearance in North America since Bugatti announced plans to reimagine the original 1926 Baby at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show. Since its launch, the car has gathered international attention due to its exquisite modern-day engineering coupled with authentic nods to the original Type 35 on which it is based.

As part of the tour, the Bugatti Baby II took to the historic race track at the renowned Willow Springs International Raceway, providing a lucky few the opportunity to drive a ‘Blanc’ Vitesse specification vehicle in its delimited ‘speed key’ mode. The Bugatti Baby II will also be on display in Bugatti Newport Beach and Bugatti Beverly Hills showrooms until December.

 

In partnership with The Little Car Company, Bugatti will produce just 500 of these 75% scale Type 35 vehicles. While a majority of the units have been accounted for, a small amount of the build slots have been reserved for Bugatti customers and will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

The Bugatti Baby II can be enjoyed by multiple generations of collectors and enthusiasts. Each model, built on an electric, rear-wheel drive platform, offers short and long range battery options with a range of up to approximately 31 miles, depending on driving style. Owners will enjoy the combination of authentic Type 35 handling and modern technological elements, including regenerative braking, adjustable dampers and the famed Bugatti Speed Key, giving drivers the ability to reach the top speed of 42 mph.

The three versions of the Bugatti Baby II include the Base starting at $36,600, the Vitesse at $53,000 and the Pur Sang at $71,400, the latter offering handmade aluminium bodywork.

The Base model is available in French Racing Blue with black leather interior, while the Vitesse and Pur Sang offer a line of vintage colors that pay homage to Bugatti’s memorable racing liveries and drivers in history. Also available for these two models is a contemporary palette that features colors offered for the Chiron1, allowing existing customers to match their new Bugatti Baby II to their current vehicle.

Once purchased, Bugatti Baby II owners receive automatic membership to the prestigious Bugatti Owner’s Club and The Little Car Club, both offering the chance to drive their Bugatti Baby II on some of the world’s most celebrated racing circuits.
