CMC Item No. M-083, Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe, Scale 1:18
The Type 57 SC Atlantic was a masterpiece developed by Jean Bugatti, the only son of the great "patron" Ettore Bugatti. It was an extraordinary feat of automotive engineering at that time, both in design and construction. Only three examples were built; Powered by a 3.3 liter inline 8-cylinder engine, the Type 57 SC Atlantic was the fastest street car of its time. No other car was comparable to the elegance and perfection of this breath-taking two-seater.
The Atlantic combined beauty and function in its aerodynamic design. This starts with the end-to-end riveted dorsal seam that gives the car a unique character, and continues with the headlamps that are shaped in the appearance of "eyes." These are just two examples of the many distinctive traits that are exquisitely recreated in our model. Combined, the details are what give this model its great charisma and exceptional grace. It takes more than 1,700 single parts, mounted by the hand, to create this arduous piece of art on wheels.
