Art Deco cars: the Bugatti 57 SC Atlantique


the sculptural form of the car body is constantly changing; but there are some cars that transcend their era and enter history as a great immortal influence for anyone who wants to create a car for one of those rare occasions is this week’s art car the bugatti type 57sc atlantic the masterpiece of gianoberto maria carlo jean bugatti the the son of founder ettore jean bugatti was a master of form and technique like his father; one of the rare events where lightning strikes twice in the same place https //flatout with br/bugatti the tragedy of a perfect son/ the car is ridiculously attractive even today 86 years after seeing the light of day for the first time and also a lesson in industrial design made well but one element still stands out from the flange that connects the two halves of the work of the body in the middle of the car and a detail that since its appearance has surprised everyone it is clear that it only works with visible rivets it is necessary. don’t look fancy or modeled; Conventional wisdom says that things like this should be turned towards the inside of the car where they can be hidden by the trim but in a reversal of the conventional arrangement Jean created this divider as an irresistible steampunk visual purpose that divides the car along with the right rear window. down the middle and simply genius bill mitchell the very powerful and influential leader of gm design when gm design leads the world in the 1950s and 1960s he was so passionate about this car that when he prepared the second generation corvette a car where he intended to achieve immortality the first corvette was his predecessor Harley Earl, who added the spine to divide the whole car, including dividing the back window in half, so another classic was born, the Corvette Stingray window division, now for only one year. who thought this I’m stupid Blocking the visibility of the car so in 1964 the split window disappeared [caption id= attachment_329181  align= aligncenter  width= 999 ] 1995 chrysler atlantic[/caption] Since then, the influence of the car has always been there. In 1995, Chrysler created a concept car, making it a modern Bugatti, for example, Chrysler Atlantic, including a dohc in line eight created from two engine blocks from the Econobox Neon, but each car that has a half divided by A continuous line as an example, many Chevrolets until recently owed a little to this bugatti from 1936 but not only that it was something very strange technically also that today it is considered the first supercar. let’s start the story here today; first explaining what kind of sc jean’s bugatti type 57 was in the early 1930s, ettore was spending more time in paris taking care of other interests and the molsheim factory was being actively led by his son jean, it is not entirely clear that type 57 was to be locked in front of freedom but when ettore saw the model he objected to the idea when the car would have another expression of the famous bugatti front axle made of steel tube that had a square way of leaf springs near its center.

The sculptural form of the car body is constantly changing; but there are certain cars that transcend their era and go down in history as an undying influence on anyone who wants to build a car. One of those rare occurrences is this week’s Art Deco car, the Bugatti 57SC Atlantic, the masterpiece of Gianoberto Maria Carlo “Jean” Bugatti, son of founder Ettore. Jean Bugatti was a master of form and technique like his father; one of the rare cases where lightning strikes twice in the same place. https://flatout.com.br/bugatti-a-tragedia-do-filho-perfeito/ The car is very interesting even today, 86 years after seeing the light of day for the first time. It’s also a lesson in industrial design done well, but one feature is still visible: the sculpted flange that joins the two halves of the bodywork in the middle of the car. It is a detail that has surprised everyone since its appearance. It’s just plain work
