This 1930's 'Baby' Bugatti, Type 52, electric car made for children will be one of the feature items in our May 6 Auction. This electric car is one of several made by William Harrah, so exacting, it's almost impossible to tell from the 1930's version.
The 'Baby' Bugatti was the ultimate luxury toy for dozens of high society children originally designed by Ettore Bugatti, founder of the legendary automobile company, for his five year old son, Roland.
The Bugatti Baby 52 is an exact half-size replica of the Bugatti type 35 Grand Prix, the legendary sports car that won close to all the major car races between 1925 and 1927.
A few modern day replicas (William Harrah type 52's, handmade in the early 1970's) where created with classical period workmanship.
Three 'Baby' Bugatti Type 52 replicas, from the 1930's, have sold for over $75,000.00, one at Gooding & Co (FL) for $110,000 in 2008.
