The Bugatti baby 2 has up to 75% resemblance with Type 35 and it has a sliding pedal box for all ages of drivers. Although it is Bugatti, it is not expected to surpass the limits and set any earth-shaking speed record. It will be specifically targeting the rich kids, who would love to have this special car in their lives. At 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it was first presented as a 3D printed model. Bugatti Baby 2 will have a limited edition run as Bugatti will only manufacture 500 units. The interesting thing is that it is entirely sold out as 500 teenagers with good luck have already awarded one in their carriage.

Moreover, several colors will be accessible for both interior and exterior. It comes up with the standard eight-spoke alloy wheels shod in the latest Michelin tires and also the latest hollow front axle across with the suspension and steering mechanism from the old Type 35.
