    For the moment we only have these two pieces of information.

    - This One-Off would be for Dr. Ferdinand Piëch.

    - It will cost (I hope you are sitting) €16 million.

    Only 4 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic have ever been built. The technique to rivet the body panels externally has been copied from the aviation industry. Its result, the car’s unique dorsal seam which led to its present fame. This Atlantic with the Chassis No 57473 was originally sold to the Parisian business man Jacques Holzschuh.

    The second of the 4 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic with the Chassis No 57591 was originally sold to the British barrister Richard Pope.

    The third of the 4 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic with Chassis No 57374 was originally sold to the British politician Baron Victor Rothschild.

    The fourth of the 4 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic with the Chassis No 57453 was kept by Jean Bugatti himself. But what happened to it after Jean died? Its story became very clandestine indeed.

    Bugatti Chief of Design Achim Anscheidt tells us more about the mystery of Jean Bugatti’s favourite 57 SC Atlantic.

    Jean Bugatti’s 57 SC Atlantic cannot be re-created, but what do you think? Can we translate its design language into the 21st century?

    Bugatti’s Deputy Design Director Etienne Salomé tells us, what it would need to revive the 57SC Atlantic in the 21st century.

    Small recalls of the history of the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic.

    L'Atlantic Rothschild

    The 1936 57374 chassis was the very first Atlantic, ordered by London banker Rothschild. And it was not until 1939 that the grey and blue copy received its supercharger. After the war, the car left for Los Angeles, where its new owner Bob Oliver had the rear windows modified and repainted several times. In 1971, Peter Williamson bought it for $59,000. He had it restored to its original 1936 state, then sold it to Peter Mullin and Rob Walton for... $36 million. In 2003, the car was crowned "Best of Show" at the Pebble Beach Elegance Competition, and it also won the Chantilly Competition in 2017. Currently, it can be admired in the USA, at the Mullin Automotive Museum.

    L'Atlantic Holzschuh

    On December 11, 1936, engineer Jacques Holzschuh took delivery of his grey Atlantic, chassis number 57473. With it, he won a competition in 1937 in Juan-les-Pins, but the car had already changed shape. Holzschuh had the headlights raised, and had the bodywork further modified later to enhance comfort. In 1939, he hid the Atlantic in Monaco. Holzschuh died in 1945, after which the car was sold by the owner of the garage where it had been sheltered. In 1952, it was owned by the serial seducer René Chatard, who registered it in the name of one of his mistresses, a certain Marguerite Schneider. But it was with another of her conquests, Jeanine Vacheron, that Chatard, at the wheel of her Atlantic, made an unfortunate encounter... with a train. The remains of the car were collected in a warehouse, where they were found for a first restoration. In 2000, conservator Paul Russell undertook a new one.

    L'Atlantic Pope

    The last Atlantic was born in 1938. The chassis 57591 registered EXK 6 had been ordered by the British Richard Pope. He kept the car for 30 years, before selling it to the author Barry Price, who in turn sold it in 1988 to the famous Ralph Lauren. He had the car restored by specialist Paul Russel. This Atlantic in turn collected the trophies, including Best Of Show titles at Pebble Beach in 1990, and Villa d'Este in 2013. It is difficult, if not impossible, to estimate the fair value of a car like this. But 40 million euros seems to be a minimum.

    La voiture noire

    The 57453 chassis is known as the "black car", and was Jean Bugatti's personal car. It disappeared from circulation in 1938. Rumour has it that Bugatti had her transported to Bordeaux to avoid falling into the hands of German troops, but that she was nevertheless "captured" in 1941 by the Nazis, who dismantled her. Anyway, the car never showed up again.

    so uninteresting that you still took the time to come and comment here...

    i wonder if it will be a new base (which would surprise me a lot, but would justify the price) or another iteration of the chiron
    i really hope to see a front engine GT...

    If they can put the W16 in front (like the 16C Galibier) it would be really amazing!
    So I wonder if this will really be a One-Off....
    I bet on four copies like the original.

    again, most likely it will be based on the chiron,

    but my theory (or my hope) is that it could be a one-off based on a brand new model (after all, that's what happened with the vision GT)

    Seems as though they have determined their current clientele has the means and desire to fully commission bespoke one of one bodies. It will be nice to see what can be accomplished design wise w/ virtually money no object creations.

    According to Stephan Winkelmann, the car will bring together the past, the present and the future.

    I really wonder what it will be the engine of this Bugatti...
