Alan Guerzoni is a very talented young designer who is inspired by classical vehicles such as the 1931 Bugatti Type 40. The evidence for this is just before your eyes. The pictures in the gallery below as well as the one featured in the post depict what the imagination of the creative has done to interpret the old model into a contemporary car. And we all love what he has done!
In fact, this is his second version of the so called Atlantique concept. The designer has worked on the first one which is a coupe and has further developed it so that he can now present the spectacular open-top version.
The spider carries the spirit of comfort, luxury and elegance. In addition, he created it with the intention to be capable of exhilarating performances. This "Grand Sport" is already known as the opened Veyron.
It features a carbon roof, which elegantly disappears in a few seconds. It sinks in a special space in the rear trunk with the help of an electrical mechanism. Furthermore, the Atlantique Grand Sport has new black rims with diamond finish and design inspired by the classic Bugatti radiator grille.
The designer envisions this concept to be powered by bi-turbo 4 liters V12 engine, which is capable of producing 650 horsepower (478 kW). The gasoline unit drives the rear wheels, while additional 200 horsepower (147 kW) are sent to the front wheels thanks to an electric motor and a KERS system. With so much power this Bugatti accelerates for 3.2 seconds from 0 to 60 mph on its way to a top speed of 350 km/h.
