HISTORY (ORIGINAL VEHICLE)
With this CMC Bugatti Roadster a model car dream has come true in many respects . The roadster with bodywork by London bodybuilder Corsica Coachworks was built in 1938 as a one-off according to the ideals of its owner at the time. At the suggestion and great support of the manufacturer Bugatti Automobiles S. A. S. , CMC implemented this model in 2014 on a scale of 1:18. This was also a dream come true for CMC owner and managing director Shuxiao Jia: she had this car in mind since the 1990s, of which she had once seen a model on a smaller scale. And last but not least, with the Bugatti Roadster, CMC has fulfilled the dreams of many collectors of an exquisite milestone in automobile history – the model representing the car in its pre-restoration condition by its current owner was sold out in a very short time.
But now, as the crowning glory of our Advent campaign, we can offer you a small quantity of this CMC model, which has been sold out for a long time and is often in demand, which we were able to reorder. Don’t miss this unique opportunity, we have only a few models in stock!
