Following a total build to date of 35 cars of different specification the engine manufacturer Comer have launched a starter modification to the existing engine. It requires a small amount of machining and the fitment of a battery and starter button. A true “PRESS and GO” option the car has just become zoo much easier to use…… Please e mail for costs for the update….
Tula Engineering started in 2007 a production for a limited run of only 15 vehicles. The half scale model of the Bugatti Type 52 has the appearance and scaled dimensions of the legendary Bugatti T35B. The performance is exciting and its handling characteristics reflect the best vintage motoring tradition.Each vehicle has its own individual numbered chassis plate to underline its exclusivity.
High priority has been given to driveability, detail and the selection of materials. The car is designed to please a wide age group ranging from 5 to 75+. The flexibility of the cockpit controls enables all sizes to drive comfortably and in style. There are two controls. The only foot control is a fully adjustable accelerator engaging an automatic clutch. Braking is achieved by applying the outside hand brake lever which operates an inboard disk assembly and by engine inertia.
Starting procedure is simple with a remote electric starter. Fitting into the engine compartment and at a press of its button the engine bursts into life Whilst speeds of 20 to 25 mph are easily obtained without strain, the car which is very simple to control has a high safety factor. Engine restrictors and gearing options control the final speed.
The body shell is a strong glass fibre moulding acting as a monocoque for the front dumb iron sub-assembly and the rear transmission subframe. Both axles are very robust steel units. The front axle has multi-leaf spring suspension and the rear axle incorporates the engine mounting plate and is rubber mounted.
The engine is a sturdy, thoroughly reliable 80cc air cooled, 2 stroke unit situated behind the seat. The drive is transmitted through the clutch, reduction box, final chain and sprockets. Like many of the car’s components, the wheels are made of specially cast aluminium and carry 12″ x 2½” pneumatic tyres. Louvred aluminium panels are used in the construction of the hinged bonnet, front apron and side trims.
The high standards of paintwork are produced in three colours: Bugatti Blue, Bright Yellow or Black Lustre, while the upholstery is in black leather effect vinyl.
Options include: Special colour choice, Leather trim, Wooden steering wheel, Aluminium fuel cap, Polished aluminium components, Starting platform, 2nd seat. A remote controlled power off switch.
This is the only replacment I can get for the now out of stock and manufacture Veidestine. Closer to the original 3 Stud tyre used on the 1920 cars they are £27.50 each with tubes included plus postage and VAT. I have a stock of 100 here and if you would like a set I will buy back the old style providing they are still in reasonable condition.
