Review: Is The Bugatti Baby II Electric Type 35 Remake A Cheap Bugatti Or An Expensive Toy?

The highly customized Baby II is finished in Jetex Orange, a special shade developed especially for this example, and boasts the Touring Pack, which adds LED headlights, brake lights, mudguards, fender package and upgraded wiring harness/loom. It also gets a personalized number plate, custom reflective chrome logos, premium leather seats and a hand-built transport case, as well as a ‘speed key’ that unlocks the full power of the electric powertrain.

The Vitesse and Pur Sang versions of the Baby II have a total output of 13.4 brake horsepower (10 kW), and with a 230 kg (507 lbs) weight, they need just 6 seconds to accelerate from 0 to 60 km/h (0-37 mph), en route to a 70 km/h (43 mph) top speed. The Base model offers a maximum of 5.4 HP (4 kW) and a 45 km/h (28 mph) top speed in the Expert driving mode, or 1.3 HP (1 kW) and 20 km/h (12 mph) in the Novice mode, both of which are included in the upper specs. All Bugatti Baby II models boast rear-wheel drive and hydraulic brakes.

Another example, with a Nocturne Black exterior and Terre D’or leather cabin, has made its way to Belgium. It’s been designed to match the client’s Bugatti Type 35, and won’t feel alone in their collection, which also includes an original Bugatti Baby and other Pre War Bugattis.
