Bugatti Royale Coupé de Ville 1930: True-to-original, high-quality model car in 1:18 scale, blue/black
This preassembled, die-cast model is a milestone in model manufacture. This 1:18 scale model reconstruction of the legendary Bugatti Royale Type 41 Coupe de Ville is made up of more than 1,300 individual parts, and is a masterpiece of craftsmanship. 18 different materials went into the making of this model, and all parts were assembled piece-by-piece by loving handwork. The die-cast metal body can be removed from the chassis with just a few manipulations, giving you a unique view of a scaled version of the nearly 1.5 meter long original engine. The 1.85 kg weight is exceptional for a 1:18 scale model – as was the deadweight of the original car, which weighed more than 3,000 kg.
Like the original car, this model by Heinrich Bauer, Nuremberg, Germany can only be described by one word: GIGANTIC!

The Bugatti Royale Type 41 was designed to impress; and it certainly did. Given its extreme size and beautiful design, it continues to fascinate enthusiasts all across the world. At a price that could have bought you three Rolls-Royces, the Royale was reserved to only the richest, and those who could afford this car knew there would not be many others they would have to share it with. The extremely elegant body design is fastened to a gargantuan chassis, and is built extremely sturdily in order to cope with the length, weight and even the huge torque of the car. The giant 142 cm long engine was lubricated with 14 litres of oil and cooled with 48 litres of water. The Royale had a 190 liter tank – which it definitely needed at a consumption of 40 l/100 km.
