Latest One-Off Bugatti Inspired By Type 57 SC Atlantic

Wake up with a blue Bugatti

  • Owner wanted a car like the classic they remember

  • Super Sport gets chrome blue paintwork


Is it possible to get sick of all of the special edition models that Bugatti builds every year? Maybe. But do we still want to drool over the one-of-one models that we’ll never get to see in public? Absolutely. Here’s the latest, commissioned to show one owner’s love of a Bugatti 57.

“I remember the day like it was yesterday. I visited the Mullin Automotive Museum at Oxnard, and there it was, one of only three cars that still remain, on a pedestal all by itself. I fell in love with it from the very second I saw it,” said the owner of the Bugatti Chiron Super Sport 57.

She was talking about a Type 57 SC Atlantic. The very first Type 57 SC ever built.

The customer, whom Bugatti does not name, saw a scale model of that car when she was in Molsheim, France, to commission and configure her own Super Sport. The buyer, along with lead designer of Bugatti’s Sur Mesure custom team Jasche Straub, wanted to recreate that memory.

The resulting car is this silver-tinted blue Super Sport “57 One of One.” The finish is an exact copy of the original Type 57 SC, and it has other tribute details like the new grille with a thicker spine and polished vertical slats.

Other details include a hand-drawn silhouette of the Atlantic on the underside of the wing along with lightning-blue stitching of an Atlantic on the door panels. There are “57 One of One” inlays on the center console as well, and a Dancing Elephant sculpture on the headrests.

According to Bugatti, the new owner is driving her one-off. “The customer is enjoying her Bugatti Chiron driving experience, having explored the scenic routes of the American West behind the wheel of her exceptional Bugatti on the US Grand Tour,” the automaker said.
