The Type 35, a masterpiece of Ettore Bugatti, did not fare well in the 1924 Grand Prix of France because of tire problems. During the following years, however, Bugatti was crowned with success over and over again.
Equipped with the Type 35, Bugatti had won twelve Grand Prix races by 1926 and was always the first to see the chequered flag of the Targa Florio each year between 1925 and 1929. They also dominated the “Grand Prix of Monaco” in 1929 and 1930.
Between 1924 and 1931, more than 300 Bugatti Type 35 left the “Usine Bugatti,” all with an inline eight-cylinder engine that mostly had a 2-litre capacity. The last two versions 35TC and 35B had a 2.3-litre engine supercharged by a Roots compressor.
The horseshoe radiator grille and alloy cast wheels that stylised the Bugatti Type 35 became an icon of the era, whereas the bended front axle was deemed another prominent feature of the Bugatti cars.
The low total weight of 750kg and a fabulous gearbox amenable to swift shifting were the secrets of Ettore Bugatti’s passport to success, and he loved celebrating each race win with his team.
Let us re-visit the glorious history made by the Bugatti Type 35 with a high-end model made by CMC. Hand-assembled from more than 900 individual parts, this precision metal model recaptures the unique talent and style of Ettore Bugatti that led him to secure a place in the history of automobiles.
The black and white pictures in the contemporary archives are unable to do justice to all the colorful race cars of the 1920s and 1930s. Actually, since rules had it that each participating team must have its car(s) donned in a nation-specific color pattern, the starting field was usually a very bright, multi-colored scene.
The color pattern for England was dark green all over, as in our M-100 B-002. Piloted by William Grover-Williams, the green Bugatti T35 with starting number 12 won the championship of the 1929 Monaco Grand Prix.
