Description of the original vehicle Bugatti Atlantic: The development of the Atlantic Coupé was intellectually indebted to Ettore Bugatti's son, Jean. Only 26 years old, he came up with a masterpiece that made automobile history. What he presented was a design that had never been seen before, and it outshined anything else. The car has upheld its halo and fascination to this day. By the way, the dorsal seam that goes from its wind shield to the rear end, is just a style element. It`s reminiscent of the seam that held the two body half of the prototype car "Aerolithe" together.

But not only the appearance of the sports car caused a lot of attention. The Atlantic-Coupé was one of the most powerful cars of its time in the world. The 3.3 litre 8-cylinder in-line-engine and two overhead cam shafts became powered by a compressor. Approximately 200 hp accelerated the car to sensational 200 km/h.

But how did the Atlantic received his name? Well, it`s a common assumption that Jean Bugatti chose this name to honor his adored sculptor and pilot Jean Mermoz. He tried to cross the South-Atlantic in 1936 by plane and disappeared without a trace.

  1. Motor: 8-cylinder in-line-engine with two overhead cam shafts

CMC Bugatti Typ 57 SC Atlantic Coupé Bleu, 1938 Châssis N° 57.591 (R.B.Pope)

Pour une deuxième Bugatti dans la gamme CMC ce modèle est une réussite, tout est à l’identique au modèle original depuis l’intérieur, les essuies vitres, la reproduction du moteur avec son câblage et cette couleur bleue si particulière. Non seulement le modèle est magnifique et de plus nous serons comblés avec la version restaurée ( propriété de Ralph Laurent ) qui est prévue aussi .\r\nMerci CMC pour ces magnifiques réalisations.\r\n

Le meilleur de chez CMC

Comme d\'habitude CMC nous a préparé un merveilleux modèle. Vous admirerez les détails : le ressort de rappel au niveau des portières, la finition \"cuir\" et la peinture particulièrement réussie.
