Bugatti Type 35 by ACA, 1975

Art Collection Auto of Vichy, France

A superb 1:8 scale model of the Bugatti Type 35 - winner of the 1924 Grand Prix of Lyons - a finely detailed all-metal enthusiast’s model, circa 1975, in excellent condition complete with original display case and bronze plaque (not shown).

Length: 18½ inches (47 cm)

Art Collections Auto (ACA) was established in 1974 by Jean-Pierre Fontauelle and its first model, the Type 35 Bugatti was unveiled at the Geneva motor show in March 1975. Described by Roland Bugatti himself as a ‘tour de force’ of model-making, the Type 35 was launched at the scarcely believable price of GB £1,500 at a time when a Ferrari 250GT California Spider SWB made only £3,800 at auction!

Unsurprisingly few were sold. ACA launched a second model the following year (an 8-litre Bentley), but the firm collapsed soon after
