Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic - 1:18 Scale Diecast Model Car
No list of the most beautiful automobiles ever made can be considered complete without mentioning the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, perhaps the crowning achievement of Jean Bugatti's design career. Based upon the 1935 Aerolithe show car, the "production" Atlantic (only four were built) featured teardrop-shaped aluminum coachwork draped over a potent 3.3-liter, twin-cam straight eight - a most exotic powerplant in its day. The result is a feast for the senses: a car that is thrilling to see, to hear, and to drive. The all-time classic Bugatti Atlantic has been honored with a premium-grade 1:18-scale replica by AUTOart, and is itself among the very finest diecast model cars one is likely to encounter. It includes a faithfully detailed cockpit that is revealed by doors mounted on accurately rendered hinges. The mighty Bugatti straight-eight engine is replicated spectacularly, as are the Atlantic's gorgeous body-colored wire-spoke wheels. For those seeking a true "pinnacle piece" for their diecast model car collection, the AUTOart 1:18-scale Bugatti Atlantic is more than worthy of consideration.
