Bugatti Atlantic 57 SC

Next to the introduction of the Atalante model in 1935 an experimental model on the S-chassis appeared: the AĆ©rolithe. This car created quite a stir with its unusual low, almost hunched body style and its ability to reach a maximum speed of 200 kph. It attracted enough interest to consider taking it into production, and so the Atlantic was presented in 1936 as the production version of the AĆ©rolithe. It was to become the rarest and most exotic of all Type 57 Bugattis. The Atlantic can be regarded as the sportscar version of the Sport Atalante, with innovative streamlined 2-seater fastback coupe bodywork on the short Sport chassis and with the tuned 8-cylinder 3257 cc engine, fitted with the compressor option.
