Bugatti T59 emerged in 1933 was the further evolution of T35 – T51 – T54 racing car series by Bugatti. It used an enlarged 3.3 L (3257 cc/198 in³) version of the straight-eight Type 57’s touring car  engine sitting in a modified Type 54 chassis. The engine was lowered for a better center of gravity, and the frame was lightened with a number of holes drilled in the chassis. This Brumm scale model of Bugatti in British Racing Green colors and with twin rear wheels most probably refers to British Hill Climb events. But the attribution to particular car, driver or even to year is problematic.
