For Bugatti’s 110th year anniversary, the snazzy car company is going back to its roots and reviving the Bugatti Baby, a miniature replica of the Type 35 race car that originally launched in 1927. The limited-run Bugatti Baby II has been given a modern makeover and though it is the smallest model in Bugatti’s current profile, it’s suitable for both adults and children despite the original being designed exclusively for youngsters.

The Baby II is a tribute to the company’s classic racer. The model features removable lithium-ion battery packs, a limited slip differential, regenerative braking and two power modes. The 1kW child mode has a top speed of 20km an hour while the 4kW adult mode as a top speed of 45km an hour that can be further increased by 10km an hour with an optional upgrade.

The Baby II will sport Bugatti’s traditional French Racing Blue finish (a range of other colours are available to order) and eight-spoke aluminium alloy wheels, giving it the look of a classic racer. Like the original Bugatti Baby, only 500 of the Baby II models will be made and production is set to start later this year. Interested to nab one for yourself? The limited-edition sports car will cost €30,000.
