The iconic Type Atlantic 57 SC coupe, produced between 1934 and 1940, is admittedly a piece of Bugatti legend. It’s elegant, sporty, luxurious, and rare, with only three cars still in existence.
Almost 100 years later, designer Habib Orhan has introduced his Bugatti Hommage 100 2036 concept car that reimagines the emblematic coupe as a futuristic electric-powered model.
Its spaceship-like shape is redefined in a more three-dimensional way, inspired by the Atlantic 57 SC and the C shape of the Ventoux coupe. The concept car also maintains the proportions of the GT series, to combine a luxurious and emotional touch with a modern sporty look.
Habib imagines his car in 2036, when the technological developments will allow for a chassis constructed from batteries and carbon fiber. At the same time, the wheels will house an engine which will presumably be powered by electricity as well.
Bugatti Hommage 100 2036’s tail design pays homage to the Atlantic with a riveted middle to make the car lighter. It also features lights to emphasize the vertical line separation.
Personally, I think that Habib’s design seems indeed like a brilliant remake of the legendary car. And it looks a bit like the 1989 Batmobile, which for me is an extra plus!
