Bugatti Type 57C Atalante

Powered by an advanced 3.3-liter twin-cam straight-eight engine, the Type 57 Bugatti was a fast, comfortable touring car.  The 160 horsepower supercharged version, known as the Type 57C, was introduced in 1937 and built for two years.

Ettore Bugatti's son Jean significantly influenced Type 57 coachwork and was responsible for designing some of the most elegant Type 57s produced.

This unusual vehicle is distinguished by its "long tail" design and roll-back roof, and was the only one delivered with chrome trim on the sides of the body.
