Bugatti Royale Fiacre T 41 #41100 1926 in 1:75 scale

This was the first body built by Bugatti. As there was some interest shown by XIII. Alfons the king of Spain Bugatti built and introduced a realy royale body named Napoleon for him. But Alfons found it too angular and want a spaciouser body. At least he bought a Rolls Royce. That was cheaper too. Later was the car introduced to pope. Some are using the nickname Pope-car too. The car was renamed Fiacre when Weimann built the wonderfull body for the today known Napoleon Coupe.

I exhibited my chassis and Tourer models on an Automodel Exhibition in Budapest. I met there the Harris twins who are one of the most illustrious model makers of Hungary and automuseums owners. They was so nice to allow me to search in the museums library. I found there a photo and side view of the Fiacre in the last minute. Namely the model was soon started but that based on a wrong picture. So I could modify it yet in time.

Hi Brudda . . . pardon . . . Bruce,

The model isn`t any kind of kit. It is 100% scratchbuilt. You can find some further details and story about the build of the models in my earlier posts about Chassis and Tourer and in the coming posts of the other body variants of Royales in the next time posted weekly.

Hi Chris,

yes it is in 1:75 scale. You can check out the proportion to a 1:24 model in my earlier post about Napolen Coupe built from an Italeri kit.
