Condition & Features

Think the replica business is a new development? Guess again! This neat little Bugatti replica dates to the 1970s and uses a sturdy and reliable VW Beetle platform to re-create one of history’s greatest sports cars, the Bugatti Type 35. Now obviously it isn’t going to fool purists, but if you want the most entertaining 4-wheeled experience per dollar, this car has few equals. They got the proportions pretty close on this replica, starting with the traditional Bugatti horseshoe-shaped grille, long hood, and boattail-style bodywork. The original cars were as minimalist as you could be and still call it an automobile and were designed primarily for racing, and this car carries the same attitude. Note the cycle-style fenders, the low-slung chassis, and exposed hand brake, not to mention the lower cladding that’s held on by safety wire for easy access. These are all details that recall the original at least in flavor if not function. It’s been in the same owner’s hands for 25 years, so obviously there’s something to its charm, and honestly, it’s pretty easy to imagine sitting behind those tiny windscreens and slinging this sportster through the turns of your favorite country road. Finish quality is decent, acceptable for weekend outings, but this isn’t a show car and was never intended to be. It’s mostly fiberglass, of course, but that also means it’s durable and easy to maintain. You also get chrome headlights poking up over the fenders, a side-mounted spare, and plenty of lighting out back for safety. The interior is still very minimalist in the Bugatti tradition. Brown vinyl on a bench seat doesn’t do much to hold you in place, so it’s a good idea they added seat belts, too. The wood-rimmed steering wheel feels beefy in your hands and is directly connected to the front suspension, so you always know exactly what’s going on. The matching wood dashboard has a vintage vibe and carries basic gauges to monitor the air-cooled engine’s vitals. A 4-speed shifter sticks out of
