It’s not often that concept supercars draw inspiration from the design aesthetic of yesteryear. The Bugatti concept clearly relies on cues drawn from the original design of the 1930s supercar.
Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic is largely considered to be one of the most beautiful automotive designs in history. But the Atlantic is not just any old car, but a monument to pre-war Europe. It’s one of the last great things mankind produced before everybody switched to building tanks and war machines. It’s also the pinnacle of the Bugatti family’s contribution to the twentieth century and the automotive industry. It’s a significant piece of history and its is basically art deco on four wheels.
The Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic is the design work of Julian Świetlicki and balances the line between the design of several different concept supercars. From the rear, the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic looks like something out of the 1930s, while the front portion clearly incorporates the modern design aesthetic of the Bugatti hypercars of today.
