product description

A masterpiece of architecture model: CMC Bugatti Typ T35 Grand Prix, 1924

Hand-assembled from 926 parts, this miniature, which is a display of Grand Prix racing version (without an additional spare wheel), takes a lot of experience and love of detail to create. It is a fine example of the authentic replication and superior craftmanship that only CMC can bring to you. Simply a piece of art. The trademark horse-shoe cooler, the spoke wheels made of aluminium cast, and the rectangular box-shaped engine - these are just a few characteristics that make the car so very special.

Description of the original vehicle: With his ground-breaking Type 35, Ettore Bugatti created in 1924 the superior racing car of his era, which would become the inspiration for many other models. Type 35 had his Grand Prix premiere at the European Grand Prix of Lyon/France at the 3rd of August in 1924. As of today, the Bugatti Type 35 remains the unparalleled record holder of 1,851 documented victories. Since all these victories were scored within the short period of 1924 through 1927, the Type 35 is the most successful 8-cylinder in-line engine and racing car of all times. Nicknamed "Le Patron", Ettore Bugatti is remembered as one of the most valued automobile engineers because of his exceptional talent and the new height he set for the technical design of his time.
Also noteworthy are the so-called "gentlemen" drivers who steered Bugatti cars to victories with a lot of fanfare and charisma. Among those who wound up behind the steering wheel were counts, gigolos, bohemians and adventurers. The majority of them were very wealthy. They lived in a world of luxury that featured excessive parties, startling love affairs, costly wagers as well as reckless urges to play with their lives.

Technical data of the original vehicle:
  1. 8-cylinder in-line-engine (double block)
  2. Overhead camshaft, 3 valves for each cylinder
  3. Two times Zenith-horizontal carburettor
  4. Displacement: 1,991 ccm
  5. Maximum output: approx. 95 hp ati 6.000 rpm
  6. Top speed: approx. 180 km/h
  7. Wheel base: 2,400 mm
  8. Total length: 3,700 mm

CMC Bugatti Type 35 Grand Prix, 1924

Modèle magnifique composé de 926 pièces montées à la main, habillée d’une belle peinture ‘’Bleue de France’’ c’est la voiture de course la plus connue dans le monde. Avec 1851 victoires entre 1924 et 1927. Elle est championne du monde en 1926 et remporte cinq victoires consécutives à la Targa Florio entre 1925 et 1929. Cette miniature est d’avantage une vraie Type 35 en réduction qu’une maquette au sens classique du terme. CMC comme d’habitude n’a négligé aucun détail. Bravo et merci.
