Celebrating its 110th anniversary, Bugatti has teamed up with The Little Car Company for a remake of the Type 35. Inspired by the original “Baby” built by Ettore Bugatti for his son in 1926, this updated model sees a chassis that’s roughly 75-percent in size of the actual car and can seat an average-sized adult, although it is intended for children.

The base model comes with only one color option and is powered by a 1.4 kWh battery pack that allows for the Baby II to reach 45 km/h, or you could drop your savings on either the “Vitesse” or “Pur Sang” version which sees carbon fiber construction or handmade aluminum bodywork, respectively.

The “Vitesse” sees a lighter and stiffer body for a more performance-driven version of the Baby II while the “Pur Sang” is a completely artisanal approach to coachbuilding, and sees over 200 hours of labor to create. Both of these top-end versions are powered by a long-range 2.8 kWh battery pack and have a 10kW “Speed Key” upgrade that bypasses the speed limiter allowing for 60-percent more power compared to the base model.

As these were made for extremely fortunate children, the Baby II is limited to 500 examples, and will cost you $35,000 USD for the base model and $67,000 USD for the “Pur Sang.” Head over to Bugatti Baby to learn more.
