Bugatti Type 13 9/16 Scale
Bugatti is one of the most celebrated marques of automobiles of all time. The company is legendary for producing some of the best sports cars in the world. The Type 13 was one of the first cars to be produced and sold under the Bugatti name. This child’s car, a fabulous replica of a Bugatti Type 13, was handcrafted in 9/16 scale by Fred Storer, Jr. Storer’s objective was to build a car for his grandchildren to enjoy while producing a reasonable replica of an actual car. He determined the scale of the car based on the availability of tires. After finishing the car, he realized it was really too nice to be used as a toy. The craftsmanship and details are fantastic. The chassis is fabricated from 1/8″ steel sheet following original factory chassis drawings. As you can see, Storer even made the spoke wheels himself. The hubs are machined from aluminum and the spokes are handmade.
The car is fully functional and powered by an electric motor.
