Super Sports Car - The Veyron

The design of the Veyron honors a great heritage without drifting off into retro style. Every detail of the classic two-tone color scheme, a quote from the 1920s and 1930s, has been carefully thought out, resulting in the typical Bugatti profile with the classic, contrasting ellipsis – the stylistic element used by Ettore Bugatti himself. The “crest line”, which runs uninterrupted from the hood to the only 1.21-m-high roof, is a proud homage to the Veyron’s forebears. Thus, the Veyron’s classic paintwork and harmonious design connect this state-of-the-art super sports car to the glorious heritage of Bugatti automobiles.

Model Car - Bugatti Royale Coupe de Ville 1930

This preassembled, die-cast model is a milestone in model manufacture. This 1:18 scale model reconstruction of the legendary Bugatti Royale Type 41 Coupe de Ville is made up of more than 1,300 individual parts, and is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. 18 different materials went into the making of this model, and all parts were assembled piece-by-piece by loving handwork. The die-cast metal body can be removed from the chassis with just a few manipulations, giving you a unique view of a scaled version of the nearly 1.5 meter long original engine. The 1.85 kg weight is exceptional for a 1:18 scale model – as was the deadweight of the original car, which weighed more than 3,000 kg. The model comes with a highquality wooden base and mirror.
