A T57 with electron body (alloy of magnesium and aluminium) with styling by Jean Bugatti, shown at the 1935 Paris Salon. It was a prototype for the Atlantic.

LOL. :lol:
Show whatever you like.
Joao now is our judge. Maybe we can add a Works Special body section...? Just to show and discuss the grey areas, the differences and possible similarities?

It is a good suggestion to include a section for works coachbuilders, particulary where the differences are more substantial than adding a coachline and woodenstrip to the interior and calling it a Ghia (Ford)...

Bugatti was quite alone in that field of cars to offer special-built factory bodies. But nevertheless they are just as interesting.

Would love to smash one of those out of alloy, but carbon fibre is probably the choice material. . . by the way the "guild of automotive restorers" in Bradford Ontario is currently (by the photos anyway) fabricating a magnesium Aerolithe. You can check it out online. The unfortunate thing is when shaping the magnesium, the material will only stretch/shrink so far then breaks. . . .

At the Salon de Paris 1936, Bugatti presented this incredible roadster (Type 57 S, chassis 57385), with front enclosed wings which actually turned with the wheels. Maybe an answer from designer Jean Bugatti, to the Figoni & Falaschi Delahaye.
The car was bought by the famous painter André Derain, but soon, it was found that the solution of enclosed wings was highly impractical, and the car received new, more conventional wings. In 1952, chassis 57385 was re-bodied by Roger Tunesi (see the Tunesi tread). The car was then stolen and not found yet. But a replica of the roadster with conventional wings has been built recently…
