Vintage Sports Classics #6: Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic

Only four of these exquisitely beautiful cars were built between 1935 and 1938.

Styled by Ettore Bugatti’s son Jean, the aluminium body has a dorsal seam, following the style of Bugatti’s previous “Aerolithe” concept car.

With a 3.3 litre, 200 bhp, 8-cylinder engine, the car was one of the most powerful of its day. Of the four cars, three still exist: one was lost in transit through France during World War Two.

In 2010, a Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic became the world’s most valuable car when one sold for £20m in the USA.
