Description

And for the item number M-100, which is for us some kind of anniversary, too, we thought of something very special. This is a long term project that might take several years. In the past, each racing team was forced to start in their specific country race colour. Today we just can image how those races really looked. But they must have been bright and gorgeous.
So if you want to show those terrific country colours, if there any other adequate car beside the Bugatti T35? We don`t think so!

We intend in the coming years to complete this wonderful collection of cars. Each model is limited to 2000 pieces. The superior item number for all 16 cars is M-100, but each car comes with an additional sub-item number from B-001 to B-016. Also, orders can just be accepted for those three models. So in 2012 we chose the countries of

M-100-B002 Bugatti T35, England, Limited Edition. 2000 pcs.
M-100-B003 Bugatti T35, Poland, Limited Edition 2000 pcs.
M-100-B016 Bugatti T35, Spain, Limited Edition 2000 pcs.

M-100                         Bugatti T35 Nation Color Project

 

During the “Golden Twenties,” the Bugatti Type 35 was the most successful race car as well as a favorite “toy” of gentlemen drivers.  Daredevil drivers who could afford the expensive racing costs, proudly participated with their cars painted in national racing colors. A case in point was the Spanish drivers, whose cars were painted in yellow and red.

 

The Type 35, a masterpiece of Ettore Bugatti, did not fare well in the 1924 Grand Prix of France because of tire problems. During the following years, however, Bugatti was crowned with success over and over again.

 

Equipped with the Type 35, Bugatti had won twelve Grand Prix races by 1926 and was always the first to see the chequered flag of the Targa Florio between 1925 and 1929. They also dominated the “Grand Prix of Monaco” in 1929 and 1930.

 

Between 1924 and 1931, more than 300 Bugatti Type 35 left the “Usine Bugatti,” all with an inline eight-cylinder engine that mostly had a 2-liter capacity. The last two versions 35TC and 35B had a 2.3-litre engine supercharged by a Roots compressor.

 

The horseshoe radiator grille and alloy cast wheels that stylised the Bugatti Type 35 became an icon of the era, whereas the bent front axle was deemed another prominent feature of the Bugatti cars.

 

The low total weight of 750kg and a fabulous gearbox amenable to swift shifting were the secrets of Ettore Bugatti’s passport to success, and he loved celebrating each race win with his team.

 

Let us re-visit the glorious history made by the Bugatti Type 35 with a high-end model made by CMC. Hand-assembled from more than 900 single parts, this precision metal model recaptures the unique talent and style of Ettore Bugatti that led him to secure a place in the history of automobiles.
