At the top of many a wish list, the Type 35 is arguably the most significant Bugatti ever made. A bewitching blend of artistry and engineering that has entranced generations of enthusiasts since its 1924 French GP debut, the model has also inspired various imitations including those manufactured by Teal (Thistledown Engineering Automotive Limited) from the mid-1980s onwards. More of a homage than an exacting recreation, the Teal ‘Type 35’ was available in kit or factory-built guises. Clothing mass-produced running gear beneath its convincing boat-tailed silhouette.

Finished in Bugatti Blue with Tan seats ‘KIG 4435’ became part of the Aberaeron Collection in 2017. Previously supplied by Total Head Turners, specialists in classic, kit and replica cars, a document from them is included in the sale that highlights work that was carried out in 2017. This highlights a mechanical check-over, oil and fluid changes, new plugs, new alternator, new points, rotor arm, and condenser. Having period features such as a side mounted spare wheel, bonnet strap, wood rim steering wheel, dash mounted dummy Magneto, ‘KIG 4435’ is offered with an MOT test certificate which expired in October 2018 plus an article on Teal cars and a current V5C document.

Sold eBay April 2024

Note :  April 2024 appears on eBay as Teal Bugatti Replica at £15000.00
