Bugatti Type 52
|Bugatti Type 52 with motor|
The Bugatti Type 52 was a half-scale Bugatti Type 35 electric racing car for children. Over 250 examples were produced at the Molsheim factory between 1927 and 1930, and the cars were frequently used both as playthings and for more serious racing among the children of the European elite.
The car was originally just 1200 mm (47.2 in) between the wheels, but this was expanded to 1350 mm (53.1 in) when it was found that even children had difficulty with leg room. The car was 130 in (3300 mm) long overall with a 625 mm (24.6 in) track width.
