As long as there are people out there willing to spend the money, the automotive industry will always offer increasingly expensive cars to satisfy them. And because the obscenely wealthy have kids, too, there will always be more costly ways to spoil them. So if the pedal cars we brought you last month just won't do the trick, here's a throwback that is bound to.

This reproduction 1927 Baby Bugatti Type 52 isn't actually a miniaturization of a full-size car. It's a retro recreation of the Baby Bugatti that Ettore actually offered to the scions of industry and princes of Europe in the late 1920s. Only 499 were said to have been made, and all were capable of running around the mansion grounds at around 10 mph. This recreation was modeled on one example of the original purchased at auction. It measures about six and a half feet long and is hand made of aluminum with genuine leather seats and bonnet straps. Although the product isn't licensed by Bugatti, it still costs a very Bugatti-like €6350 (just shy of ten grand in American greenbacks), but is only available for delivery within France and doesn't include the electric motor and wiring. Your kid won't need a driver's license to use it, but he or she will need to learn to say "trust fund" first.
