1935 Bugatti Type 52 "Baby"

Second Floor - Industry

In 1922, Ettore Bugatti developed a detailed miniature Grand Prix car for his five-year-old son, Roland. He later decided to produce the model in series to both sell and give as gifts to preferred customers. Dubbed the Type 52 “Baby” Bugatti, the miniature car was first seen at the Milan and Paris Auto Salons in 1927. Over the next decade, Bugatti produced a total of 90 cars with Grand Prixstyle coachwork and iconic spoked Bugatti wheels. Notable owners included the Prince of Morocco and the Prince of Belgium.
