Nation Color Project
With his ground-breaking Type 35 in 1924, Ettore Bugatti created the supreme racing car of his era. The Type 35 had its Grand Prix premiere at the European Grand Prix at Lyon, France on the 3rd of August in 1924. The Bugatti Type 35 remains the unparalleled record holder with 1,851 documented victories. All these victories were scored within the short period of 1924 through 1927. The Type 35 is the most successful 8-cylinder in-line engine and racing car of all times. In the past, each racing team was forced to start in their specific country race colour. Today we can only imagine how colourful those races really looked, so CMC has decided to reproduce their highly-regarded Type 35 model in various national colours. Three liveries are expected to be released in 2012, those of England, Poland and Spain with each model limited to 2000 examples.
