2015 Bugatti 12.4 Atlantique Concept Designed by Alan Guerzoni
Bugatti Veyron in an amazing supercar and technically could one of best of in the World, but in my opinion there’s a lack of passion. My question is: what if, 15 years ago, just after the EB110, Bugatti Automobili has been rested in Italy? This is the result, a future projected car inspired to an important ancestor: 1935 Type 57sc Atlantic coupe
This is a coupe inspired to 1930s streamline design, so has suicide doors, fenders separated from body, a very long bonnet, a low and aerodinamic tail, bi-color livery and a chrome line that splits the full body in two symmetrical halves. Lights use led technology.
Third stop light is mounted on a fin on the roof. On top of each front fender is mounted a chromed fin: frontally it hosts signal lights, at the opposite a rear view camera that replaces side view mirrors. Materials used for cockpit are top quality leather, mahogany, aluminum and carbon fiber. In renderings you can see two different exterior trims:
- “Sport”, with 8 spokes rims inspired to Bugatti type 35
- “Classic” with full chrome rims inspired to Bugatti type 41 Royale, and rear wheels streamlined.

In spite of an exaggerated style, technical features are green and reliable. There is a front 4 liters bi-turbo v12 giving 650hp only on rear wheels, plus an electric motor giving 200hp on front wheels with KERS system. You can advance slowly in full electric mode, but, when you need extra power or all wheel drive traction, both can work at the same time. To stop safely there are four carbon-ceramics brakes.
So, this is a concept car perfect to race on a circuit, but also to go slowly to Monte Carlo Marina for a cocktail…
