The first 500 of the bespoke limited-edition Bugatti Baby II models are beginning to reach their respective owners around the world…
Starting at 30,000 euros, the Bugatti Baby II is a contemporary tribute to Ettore Bugatti’s original masterpiece, the Bugatti Baby, produced in 1926 and has grown from the 50% scale of the original to a 75% scale replica of the instantly recognizable Type 35. The desirable EV-powered machine also 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 jump aboard.
Produced in direct partnership with Bugatti, the Bugatti Baby II is built by The Little Car Company and deliveries include a completely bespoke ‘Vitesse’ variant which has been delivered to an operator of a private jet terminal in the UAE. The carbon fiber ‘Vitesse’ of the Baby II is to be used for transferring VIPs across the airport… hopefully when it’s dry.
Just like any road-going hyper sports car to leave the Bugatti Atelier in Molsheim, all of the cars made by The Little Car Company are completely individual, with customers able to make their own stamp on their Bugatti Baby II. The Carbon Fiber ‘Vitesse’-spec Baby II delivered to Dubai features a 2.8kWh battery pack and upgraded powertrain, while also including a Speed Key, just like the road-going Chiron hyper sports car.
Highly customized, the car is specified by the customer has worked with designers to create the color ‘Jetex Orange’, a vibrant hue that has been developed especially for this Baby II. This example is fitted with the Touring Pack; featuring a high-power LED headlight upgrade, brake light package, mudguard, and fender package, plus upgraded wiring harness/loom.
Ben Hedley, CEO of The Little Car Company, said:
“We are thrilled to that customers are taking delivery of these extraordinary little cars. The Bugatti Baby II is truly a contemporary tribute to Ettore Bugatti’s original masterpiece, and we are very proud to see these arrive with their owners. Each and every Bugatti Baby II has been lovingly hand-built to the client’s exact specifications, so each vehicle leaving our workshop is genuinely one-of-a-kind. We can’t wait to see these vehicles cherished for years to come and hope to have inspired a new generation of young Bugatti enthusiasts.”
In contrast, and in a nod to the earlier Bugatti models, the hand-formed aluminum “Pur-Sang”-spec Baby II delivered to Belgium has been designed to match the color palette of the client’s original Bugatti Type 35 by using the contemporary colors matched to the current Bugatti Chiron range. With ‘Nocturne Black’ exterior and interior leather in color ‘Terre D’or’, this Bugatti Baby II is a beautiful example of creatively blending modern designs with vehicles of the past.
Just like the original, each car is complete with an individual chassis number. This collector successfully bid on chassis 388 to match the original Bugatti Baby in their collection, raising money for a selection of automotive charities in the process.
