At the top of many a wish list the Type 35 is arguably the most significant Bugatti ever made inspiring various imitations, including those manufactured by Teal (Thistledown Engineering Automotive Limited) from the mid-1980s onwards. This example is finished traditionally in blue with matching blue upholstery, and is wonderfully detailed with numerous extra louvers and scoops, knock off 18" wire wheels and leather bonnet straps. With further nice touches including a side-mounted spare wheel, 'engine turned' bulkhead / dashboard, wood-rimmed steering wheel, external handbrake, period Jaeger style dials, heater and Brooklands aero screens. The Teal is said to be "great fun" to drive with a convincingly Vintage feel and the vendor describes "NSL 199M" as being "very good" in regards to the B series 1800 engine, four-speed manual gearbox, electrical equipment, interior trim and paintwork.
