Delahaye USA Bella Figura Bugnotti Type 57S

Inspired by the 1937 Bugatti Type 57S, the "BELLA FIGURA" BUGNOTTI is said to be a tribute to Ettore Bugatti's son, Jean.
The full-scale carbon fiber body is set to debut at Retro Auto in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance, on August 13-15 in Monterey.

Scheduled to debut at RETRO AUTO in the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance Aug. 13-15 in Monterey, CA, DELAHAYE USA's new carbon fiber bodied "BELLA FIGURA" BUGNOTTI was inspired by the classic Type 57S. This is not a real Bugatti, but our tribute to Ettore's son Jean. In development for more than a year using digital technology from REVOLUTION DESIGN STUDIOS combined with the latest state of the art vacuum infusion process from carbon fiber specialists 3 G SERVICES INC., we will offer a "carbon fiber finish" where you can see the weave of the cloth through a clear coat. Or you can have your choice of a painted body of carbon fiber and composite, or all composite. Available as "turnkeys" or the bare body and rolling frame for the build-it-yourself enthusiast, you can order a coupe, a drophead coupe with folding convertible top mechanism or a targa-top version.
