FREMONT, CA: The Bugatti Owners Club and The Little Car Company announced an official partnership, resulting in the successful launch of The Little Car Company’s limited-edition Bugatti Baby II. The stamp of approval from one of the world’s oldest Bugatti Owners Club gives the Bugatti Baby II certified status. It symbolizes the start of a significant relationship between The Little Car Company and the Bugatti Owners Club.
The Little Car Company’s Bugatti Baby II is a trustworthy modern-day remastering of the innovative Bugatti Baby, which is substantial in preserving the history of the Bugatti marque and inspiring a new generation of young Bugatti fans. This aspect is a shared common purpose between the Bugatti Owners Club and The Little Car Company.
Gemma Price, General Manager, Bugatti Owners Club, said, “As the oldest Bugatti Car Club in the world we are delighted to have formed a new partnership with The Little Car Company, focused on their Bugatti Baby II. We are looking forward to working with The Little Car Company closely and developing a strong partnership centered around the excellence of Ettore Bugattis design and engineering prowess that has proven to be visionary and timeless throughout the decades. This has been exceptionally captured and reimagined with the Bugatti Baby II and we look forward to celebrating this common affection through the development of the association of our two organizations.”
The Baby II is based on a digital 3D scan of an original Lyon GP car with identical geometry and suspension. In essence, the handling is as authentic as an enthusiast could hope for. The only nod to innovation is the introduction of adjustable dampers, permitting clients to tailor the handling in ways not probable in the Type 35s heyday.
Other appealing features include faithful working models of the original Type 35s instruments, with some modernity adjustment. For instance, the fuel pressure gauge has now converted into the battery gauge, and in a nod to the Bugatti Veyron, the oil gauge has transitioned into a power gauge. The famous four-spoke steering wheel’s scale model now has a quick release to make access to the cockpit effortless. The adjustable pedals are machined from solid aluminum billet and conceitedly display Bugatti’s famous EB logo. Simultaneously, the fuel pump knob has been precisely reproduced but now serves as the forward, reverse, and neutral selector.
Designed for ages 14 and above, the fully-electric Bugatti Baby II is bigger at 75 percent scale of the original Type 35 and significantly faster than its predecessor, with a 0- 60 kph time of just six seconds. In a nod to Bugattis modern engineering design, the Vitesse and Pur Sang models come with a Speed Key, unleashing a maximum of 70kph (42mph).
“The Bugatti Owners Club have been incredibly supportive from day one and have been instrumental to the success of the Bugatti Baby II project. As custodians of Ettore Bugattis legacy, we knew their approval would always be the hardest to earn, a remarkable undertaking that we are incredibly proud to have achieved. We are honored that with this partnership we are able to help ensure that the extraordinary craftsmanship of Ettore lives on to be enjoyed for the generations to come,” said Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company.
