Bugatti published a teaser for the revived Atlantic before the debut in Geneva

The press service of the French brand has published a video showing the front of the supercar revived from the last century.

It is safe to say that one of the most awaited presentations that will be held this week at the Geneva Motor Show can rightfully be called the appearance of a revived version of the magnificent supercar Bugatti Atlantic. In an uncharacteristically long advertising campaign, the elite Molsheim brand has already hinted at the return of the Type 57 – this is the original name of the car. Well, this new teaser gives us an idea about the design of the front of the new product. This time we are offered a three-second video.

It is safe to say that the new Atlantic will not transfer the design of the original model of the 1930s to a new one – Bugatti decided to make a modern look at what many consider to be the most beautiful car of the last century.

Not surprisingly, this version of the car is equipped with a central fin, inspired by the original Type 57SC Atlantic, given that the Chiron and Divo hypercars also have this retro design.

From the new version of the model Atlantic, the French brand Bugatti is probably trying to perform the initial production cycle, since only four copies were built, and only three of them survived to this day. The missing car was driven by none other than Jean Bugatti before being presented to the race car driver Robert Benoit after his victory in the 24 Hours of Le Mans races in 1937. The car again changed its owner a few months later, when Benoit handed it over to his close friend, as well as to the Bugatti racer, William Grover-Williams.

The lost Atlantic was included in the list of cars that were sent to Bordeaux in February 1941 during World War II, but what happened to it after that is unknown. Moving forward to today, it looks like Bugatti is on the verge of re-introducing the fourth car to complete the family portrait in 2019, when the company celebrates its 110th birthday.
