    same passion like me!
    The 57SC Atlantic is one of the most beautiful cars ever built IMO.
    I have seen one original in Schwetzingen, Germany at the Concours de Elegance 2001. I did 2 grat shots of the car with digi-cam but I was so stupid to make a power-point-presentation with all the pics and now I only have the pics stored at the ppp. No way to post the pics `cause I can not copy them from the ppp....or do you know a way to post a singel pic from the ppp.

    superb pics from a superb car!
    Ralph Lauren`s Atlantic is one of the most beautiful Bugattis I have ever seen! Wasn`t this one the winner of Pebble Beach? Can`t remember if it was the blue or the black one who won the PB concours.

    Thanks for the pics...stored on my PC:D

    Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic was manufactured with three specimens and they always exist. It thus has: #57374 which belongs to Dr Peter D.Williamson (USA-Lime-New Hampshire) then, #57591 who belongs to ralph Lauren (USA-New York) and finally #57473 which it belongs to Nicolas Seydoux (France-Paris). A lot of people seems to think that the car owned by Nicolas Seydoux was broken up after it's 1955 accident, when hit by a Renault Diesel train, south of Paris. In fact the car was rebuilt by Paul-André Berson in the late sixties and early seventies. The car was sold to Seydoux arround 1974 and he thought that the doors needed adjustment and wanted the body to be polished, so he sent the car to André Lecoq. Lecoq found that the body needed to be completely restored in order to be solid. Two years later the car was then finally restored and indeed very beautyfull, and it still is! A shame that so many people does not even know that the car still exsists !

    Did Bugatti Atlantic inspired considerable artists, in particular Paul Bouvot who will decline several versions on the topic of Atlantic, with witness this one which my is preferred... superb not ?

    Superb in theroy perhaps but the workable version of the Veyron 16V would seem to be a debacle first spinning at Monterey during the Pebble Beach weekend and then a short time later spinning and taking flight in the hands of the chief of the project for VW. Nothing quite like finding out the car is unstable at high speeds in the hands of the boss.

    Bugatti himself built a 16 cylinder aircraft engine for a WWI airplane but the project was scrapped by Dusenberg as the war ended. The Veyron 16 cylinder actually ran in Bugatti racing cars but unsuccessfully as he could not make the engine reliable and the added power did not compensate for the added weight, heat and there were massive oiling problems.

    Apparently, even with modern electorincs, the 16 cylinder is a difficult beast as well. With four turbo chargers, cooling the engine is almost impossible and it cooks itself at sustained high speeds.

    Last I heard, the Veyron 16 cylinder has gone back to the drawing board and the staff in charge of the program were sacked.
