Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Crowned ‘Best of the Best’

This stunning Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic has been crowned ‘Best of the Best’ at the third annual Peninsula Classics.

Commenting on the win, Bugatti’s Head of Tradition, Julius Kruta said, ‘This car was Jean Bugatti’s masterpiece with its beautiful and breathtaking lines, plus its unmatched performance for the time. Today, it remains the ultimate expression of the Bugatti legacy: unparalleled power and beautiful design.’

The Bugatti faced stiff competition from a strong field, which included a 1957 Ferrari 250 GT Cabriolet, a 1933/35 Lancia Astura Aerodinamica Coupé and a 1929 Mercedes-Benz S Roadster.

Peter Mullin, Founder and CEO of the Mullin Automotive Museum, which co-owns the Bugatti said, ‘From its signature curves to its aviation-inspired rivets, to the Jean Bugatti designed sleek all-aluminium body, the car is truly a remarkable piece of art. I’m very honoured to have shared it with the world amongst other worthy ‘Best of the Best’ contenders.’
