Bugatti Parts Announcements
The Bugatti Tire and Wheel
After many months of effort, the Bugatti Tire and Wheel will be ready to ship in a few weeks. We’ve asked Paul Koo to make one of his famous Instructions to assist in making the minor modifications necessary for the fit of our new slimmer Wheel.
The Tire is similar to the other marquees…that is; they are soft and flexible, matte finished and (most importantly) they are prototypically thinner. See contemporary prototype photo below.
The Wheel had to be thinned to accommodate the new Tire. At first, we tried to use the Pocher parts by thinning them…but, the results didn’t satisfy us! So, we had them designed on a CAD system and then “printed” using rapid prototype printing (3D). In the process, we had the air fins properly shaped with a correct sharper edge. The Wheel is now cast in colored resin in one piece…no assembling.
Because the Wheel is thinner, it will be necessary to modify the spindles and hubs. Not difficult…the parts are brass and easily filed. One should also thin the brake shoes. And, yes, the Wheels have the correct air fin direction. Just specify, if you only want one set.
Part No. B022 $80.00 per set

A New Bugatti Headlight!
Ettore Bugatti was the engineering genius behind some of the most successful race cars of the automotive golden era. But it was his son Jean that added the beauty that makes the Bugatti one of the most elegant cars in the world. When Jean joined his father in the family business, he set about to redesign everything from Bugatti exhaust pipes to the front headlights and everything in between.
Well, we here at Model Motorcars don’t have a Jean Bugatti, but we do have a Frank Giordano and like Jean, Frank has done a spectacular job of designing our new Bugatti Headlights. Taking a page out of the Jean Bugatti’s design book, these beautiful new headlights are perfect scale replicas of the iconic “cones” that Jean designed right down to their iconic integrated front collar.

The Famous Bugatti Elephant Mascot
Upon completion of his masterpiece The Type 41 Royale, Ettore Bugatti turned to his brother Rembrandt – an accomplished sculpter – to create the radiator ornament. As the Royale was the largest, most expensive automobile in the world, Rembrandt decided that it should be graced with the largest animal in the world and the elephant rearing onto its’ hind legs was created. Fabricated in sterling it appeared white when viewed in the daylight. And as the Royale was so large and so expensive, it was a hard sell to customers of all social strata and never attracted the pocketbook of a single royal thus giving us “The White Elephant” as a description of things that are so over the top that they defy any other description.
Our 1:8 scale Elephant Mascot was sculpted by Jill A. Kenike, a former designer for Tiffany and Co. Because our Elephant Mascot is intended to adorn the radiator of Pocher Bugattis, we asked Ms. Kenike to trim the pachyderm down a bit to match the svelt lines of the zoomy Profileé and Surprofilé Bugattis. Our Prancing Elephant Mascot is balancing on top of our new Bugatti Radiator Cap which features the correct profile and simulated quick-release latch of the prototype. Now the Pocher Bugatti can have both a correct radiator cap and a link with the artistic legend that is Bugatti.
