This set includes the two most fascinating street sports cars of the 1920s, the CMC Bugatti Type 35 in Italy Livery and the CMC Mercedes-Benz 2-liter supercharged racing car Targa Florio.
Both vehicles had in common at that time still unknown and all the more remarkable outstanding technical construction details, such as the drive of the overhead camshafts via speed-resistant and maintenance-free vertical shafts or the precisely responsive steering, by shifting the center of gravity backwards for the Mercedes and consequently lightweight construction in the Bugatti. Added to this is the use of multi-valve technology, a technology that still distinguishes genuine racing engines and ensures faster and better cylinder filling with the gas mixture.
Mercedes used two intake and two exhaust valves per cylinder; Bugatti, however, installed two intake valves and a common exhaust valve.
It is therefore not surprising that these two vehicles dominated all races of their time: Mercedes-Benz, for example, achieved overall victory in the Targa Florio 1924 with the 2-liter supercharged racing car, and other vehicles of the same design ranked 10th and 15th.
And around 2,000 victories worldwide between 1924 and 1930, including six times the overall victory at the Targa Florio between 1925 and 1930, finally underline the dominance of the Bugatti Type 35, including its later derivatives with an additional compressor.
The limited and individually numbered edition of this set comprises 20 copies.
