Heller Model Cars 1/24 Bugatti T50 Car Kit
The T50 is equipped with light alloy impellers which are practically identical to those of the Bugatti Royale. The normal wheelbase of 3.50 meters allows bodies as luxurious as they are varied to be installed on this chassis. While some of the bodies are reminiscent of the America style roadsters with which a great many BUGATTIs were equipped, others, designed by the Boss's son, JEAN BUGATTI (1909-1939) give us new forms which were exceedingly advanced for the period. The important element in the success of the bodies is the line of the profile of the wings, designed by JEAN BUGATTI. Another element of this success is the play of shades and colors which gives these bodies a slimmer look, and more energetic, through the contrasting of the colors. Among grand touring cars, the type 50 takes it place at the peak of progress thanks to its comfort, its ease of handling and its power. The type 50 was a great success, both because of its line and on account of its reliability. Highly prized in the field of elegance, it was a natural draw at any exhibition.
