Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic 1936
The Atlantic is the masterpiece of Jean Bugatti, a designer who understood the era’s Art Deco aesthetics and an engineer who learned this mechanical craft at the heel of his father, Ettore. It is one of the rarest and finest cars in the world and this is one of the only five Atlantics ever built and one of the two "Aéro Coupé" versions left. Each is or was distinct, and all five were derived from the Bugatti Aerolithe Electron Coupe prototype shown at the 1935 Paris Auto Salon. Because Bugatti himself couldn’t figure out a way to weld the car’s magnesium body without setting the entire shop en flambe, he created those magnificent flanges to join the fenders together as well as the right and left halves of the main body shell -- with rivets.
The car was delivered new in 1936 to Britain’s Nathaniel Mayer Victor Rothschild, third Baron of Rothschild, and it has had only a handful of owners since.
