Bugatti Type 35 "Pur Sang"
About this creation

Summary




History


The Bugatti Type 35 is a racing car produced by Bugatti in Molsheim, France between 1924 and 1931. It is one of Bugattis most known car and one of the most successful cars in racing history.

Aside of its spectacular forms, the Type 35 was phenomenally successful, winning over 1,000 races in its time. It wasn’t a particular powerful ca (60 to 120 bhp), but its reliability and handling led it to victory. Ettore Bugattis compared these cars with “Pur Sang” horses, starting the myth of the “Pur Sang” Bugattis.

It took the Grand Prix World Championship in 1926 after winning 351 races and setting 47 records in the two prior years. At its height, Type 35s averaged 14 race wins per week. Bugatti won the Targa Florio for five consecutive years, from 1925 through 1929, with the Type 35.

It was declined in many versions (Type 35, 35A, 35C, 35T, 35B, 37, 37A, 39 and  39A). Approximatively 640 cars were built until 1931, which is a big number considering the fact that it is a race car.

In beginnings of the 1930s, it couldn’t keep up with the Mercedes and Alfa Romeos, those being heavily supported by their respective governments.

My Model


Nothing really crazy this time ...
It has a 6 cylinder inline engine connected to the rear wheels via a differential. The steering mechanism is a replica of the one in the real car and is working.
It took 12 hours to build.

Hi XY EZ. Glad to know that you'll be willing to share this great model. One thing though, once you post to Lego Ideas, isn't the model basically under their control for a number of years until after the review period? Would you still be allowed to post the LDD file?

Quoting Marc "Edge" R.unde Not much to say here: Simply beautiful! ~Cheers
Thank you!
Quoting Alexander Paschoaletto An absolutely brilliant piece of brick, The shaping is not only phenomenal, it's also your best yet. All the detailing is pretty much gorgeous and the final model is very close to the source. Keep it up! Great to see you're still active.
Thanks a lot Alexander! Was quite busy the last year, but I have some ideas now for upcoming mocs
Quoting Henrik Jensen Wow! Absolutely amazing! That boattail looks really perfect!
Thank you Henrik!
Quoting Brian M Fantastic model. Any chance you'll release instructions???
Thank you. The problem is that it is a LDD model so I can't really see if the parts I used will actually work and stay in place in real life. I'm planning to build the car with real bricks and seee if it works or not. Then I'll share the upgraded LDD file and post this whole thing on Lego Ideas :-)
Quoting Angelo Filipelli Looks great! would be neat with a technic engine.
Thanks Angelo! Actually, it has a technic engine and a differential. I'll post a picture of them :-)
