A very, very RARE and highly detailed „half scale“ Bugatti Type 35 showroom model car

A half scale „Bugatti Type 35“ showroom car, hand-built aluminium construction and bodywork finished in blue, chromed radiator and enamel Bugatti badge, fitted with a unbelievable detailed Ettore Bugatti engine fully handbuild, with cast alloy wheels and Michelin pneumatic tires, on removable alloy wheels. This scaled automobile is fantastically made with four-wheel brakes and elaborate suspension, leather seat, removable bonnet secure with leather straps, measuring 195cm long overall. The full history of this scaled car is a bit of a mystery.
Ettore Bugatti’s engines achieve world speed records and the Type 35 was victorious in the 1926 Grand Prix World Championship and the Targa Florio for five successive years (1925-1929). In the hands of racers throughout the world, the production Type 35 racing cars ultimately winning over 1,000 races. Moving the Bugatti name to revered public recognition.
Now his automobiles are doing it all over once again on the auction block and the baby of the fleet is carrying it beyond expectations. In the years from WW1 and WW2, Ettore Bugatti showcased world’s best practice in everything he did. Bugatti’s cars were not only for racers. They were likewise the most insanely proportioned and sumptuous for the rich and popular. The Bugatti Royale Berline de Voyager achieved a world record of $6.5 million in 1986 and another Bugatti Royale (the Kellner Coupe) surpassed that record in 1987 with a sale of $9.9 million, then incredibly held the world record cost for a car at auction from 1987 until 2010.
In the midst of this, Ettore Bugatti made the effort to style and develop a reproduction T35 child’s car for his second kid Roland who was born in 1922 and got the vehicle for his fourth birthday.
The response to the small car at the company headquarters in Molsheim was so overwhelmingly favorable that the choice was made to offer the scaled-car in a " limited edition" to the public, the Bugatti “half scaled car” debuting at the 1927 Milan Automobile Show.
Only a few are left, two are exhibited at the Cité de l'Automobile– Musée National– Collection Schlumpf in Mulhouse, France

One sold in Paris on February 10, 2017 for $99,000.

Bootlegging  and  NASCAR;
To elude federal Prohibition agents, sheriffs and cops on the road, these daring “runners” needed sharp driving skills to speed and maneuver along dirt, gravel, single-lane, and occasionally, paved roads after dark and at times with their headlights turned off.
Even before Prohibition came to an end in 1933, racing these high-performance cars (Ford V8, Buick 8 and Cadillac) became a popular pastime among the “runners” in the South. They raced each other’s cars, on weekend afternoons out in the country on makeshift dirt tracks. Such were the bootlegger roots of the stock car, and what would evolve into the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing, or NASCAR, in 1947.
The Bootlegging Car;
The idea was fairly simple – take a car that looked ordinary on the outside, modify the engine for greater speed, remove the floor boards, passenger and back seats to store as many cases of liquor as possible, install extra suspension springs to handle the weight, a dirt-protecting plate in front of the radiator and run the prohibited booze to customers by outsmarting or outrunning the authorities. The trunks where enormous, capable of holding 100-132 gallons of moonshine either in carefully-packed jars or gallon-size tins.
Even when purely stock, the Buick Roadmaster provided an extremely stable ride due to its torsion bar, a wanted characteristic for bootleggers navigating moonlit red-dirt switchbacks with 100 gallons of highly-flammable liquid in their trunks.
