For the Bugatti Atlantic Coupe, Jean Bugatti’s goal was to design the ultimate high-speed grand touring car.

According to Paul Bracq, “the Atlantic is a monument in the history of French coachbuilding. More than any other car, it expresses a Latin look. An incredible sense of lightness is given off by this sculpture.”
