Carbone - Chromes - Bugatti T57 Roadster Gangloff 1:43 model
Product Review Taken From Four Small Wheels Magazine Bugatti T57 Roadster Gangloff 1934 Burgundy/White Also available CARCHR073 Black Cream original First shown at the 1934 Paris Salon, this unique roadster was designed by Jean Bugatti and built by Gangloff for a French client. The lines of the car are beautifully balanced with the main passenger compartment in the centre and a rumble seat concealed in the long barrel back. The models capture them superbly and on both we see excellent two-tone paint finishes and plenty of very fine detailing, the windscreens being particularly delicate. The black over cream is the original colour scheme while the burgundy and white is how the car has been restored. Older photographs show at least two other colour schemes in the carís long life, much of its time spent in New Zealand where it was used extensively including in rallies in the early 1950s! In addition to the colour change, there are a few small detail changes, the obvious being the removal of the rear wheel spats on the restored car and, a little subtler, the addition of modern direction indicator lights.
