Sharing The Joy of Driving | Chapter 3
BUGATTI’s Chief Pilot, Pierre-Henri Raphanel, reflects on Ettore Bugatti the family man, his love for the original Baby and passion for the Baby II project.
In 1926 Ettore Bugatti and his eldest son Jean built a half-scale Type 35 for Ettore’s youngest son, Roland, on his fourth birthday. The Bugatti ‘Bébé’ was born. Approximately 120 of the 500 still exist today (affectionately referred to as the Bugatti Type 52). Now, almost a century after its predecessor had been created, in celebration of our 110th Anniversary, the ‘Baby’ is about to be reborn.
