The Corsica in its unpainted finish displays an aura which is just impressive.
A pretty painting can sometimes might sometimes hide the fact, that there is not much underneath.
But this is something, CMC don`t have to be worry about. Everything that appears is nothing but traditional craftsmanship. The components are all model of solid materials. Beside the major component of die-cast, CMC is working with non-ferrous metals like copper and brass but as well with stainless steel for the hoods, floor panels, covers, trims and other parts. Furthermore you`ll be able to find real leather (seats, side panel of the doors), valuable rubber (tires), aluminium and stainless steel wire (rims / spokes) and as well textiles for the floor.
Of course also CMC can`t work completely without synthetic material. But we use them only in a limited number and use the best quality only. They be used for instance for the power train components.

Description of the original vehicle: British Colonel Godfrey Giles acquired a Bugatti 57 S chassis in 1937 for the roadster he would like to have. His brother Eric Giles undertook to design the bodywork, and an English coachbuilder Corsica executed his plan. It led to the birth of an astonishingly beautiful roadster. Its recorded registration took place in 1938, with the license plate number “GU7.” The roadster seemed to develop some engine problems later on. To fix them, a compressor and pistons of a different type were installed, hence the new type designation 57 SC, where C stands for “compresseur.”
In 1985, the vehicle came to be owned by John Mozart, a renowned collector in California. At the end of 1995, he initiated a complete restoration of the car. The roadster re-emerged as a stunning beauty in a dark blue finish and won the much-coveted “Best of Show” award at the 1998 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.
