T57S Atlantic inspired design 47kB
Exoticars-in-utero are a dime a dozen, despite their inevitable and annoying quarter-million-dollar pricetags. International Automotive Design unveiled their proposal for a new Bugatti coupe at the 1994 Society of Automotive Engineers International Congress in Detroit, knocking the socks off everyone in atten- dance except pehaps the exoticar builder itself. The 1:4-scale model's styling descends directly from the pre-war Bugatti 57SC Atlantic coupe, and it's about the slickest retrostyle proposal seen yet. Trouble is, don't expect to see it in the flesh; International Automotive Design is using the design to drum up business for their west coast design center, not to flesh out a contract from the Bugatti factory - which is quite a pity.
