Bugatti has partnered with The Little Car Company to produce a junior car based on the iconic Bugatti Type 35.
For the celebration of the 110th anniversary of Bugatti, a very special surprise was prepared for the enthusiasts of La Marque: The unveiling of the first Bugatti Baby II prototype.
A sliding pedal box means that both adults and children will be able to sit in the Bugatti Baby II To create the Baby II, Bugatti has partnered with The Little Car Company to produce the greatest junior car ever created. After months of development, the Bugatti Baby II has now reached the point where the first prototype, named XP1, was ready for test drives by VIPs at La Grande Fete in Molsheim.
Based on the iconic Bugatti Type 35, the Baby II combines the playfulness of the original Baby, reimagined with 21st century technology.
To allow the Baby II to be driven by both adults and children, it has grown from the 50% scale of the original to a 75% scale replica of the Type 35, and includes a sliding pedal box for drivers young and old. So while the original 500 Babys could be a tight squeeze for even the smallest children, the Baby II allows parents and grandparents to share the love of driving with their children and grandchildren.
With over 30km of range on the larger battery version, you will want to keep an eye on where your children take this toy The Baby II has been designed to be fun to drive from the start. The rear-wheel drive powertrain comes with two selectable power modes for drivers of different experience: A 1kW 'child mode' with the top speed limited to 20km/h, and a 4kW 'adult mode' with the top speed limited to 45km/h.
In addition, for those enthusiasts who crave even more pace, some versions come with a 'Speed Key' just like its big brother, the Chiron, which allows power of up to 10kW and disengages the speed limiter.
As standard the car will be painted in French Racing Blue with a black leather interior, but other colour options will be available for both the exterior and interior. These include the opportunity to have your Baby II painted in the same solid contemporary colours as the Chiron, or alternatively there is a selection of vintage colours, each dedicated to a famous driver or event from the history of Bugatti.
The car will come with two sizes of removable battery - a standard 1.4kWh pack and a long-range 2.8kWh version. While exact range will depend on driving style, the larger pack is expected to give a range of more than 30km.
In addition, all owners of Baby IIs will receive membership of The Little Car Club, and be able to attend events where they, their children and their grandchildren can drive their cars at famous motor racing circuits.
