Bugatti Atlantic Coupe Concept
Since Bugatti joined the Volkswagen Group in 1998, they’ve released two cars: the Veyron and Chiron. However, executives originally wanted a three-car range during the 2010s, including the Atlantic Coupe that you see above. It’s inspired by the Bugatti’s original Atlantic, and designed to be as a two-seater with a carbon fiber monocoque. Read more for a video and additional information.

The lines are completely different from the Veyron’s and the Chiron’s, and more resemble Bugatti’s heritage since its long hood hides a V8 engine that spins the rear wheels via a transaxle for better weight distribution. You read that right, it’s powered by a V8 rather than a W16. Unlike the Veyron and Chiron, this one has power-operated doors that swing upwards thanks to a hinge mechanism similar to the one found in the Volkswagen XL1.

It’s quite a bit bigger; it has the same proportions [as the Atlantic] but it’s as exclusive as it gets. Nothing here is off the shelf, nothing here has anything to do with the group. This is almost like developing a race car,” he explained, adding total production would have been limited to a handful of units likely priced above $15 million, and possibly north of the $20-million mark; Bugatti never made a final business case for it,” said Achim Anscheidt, the head of Bugatti’s design department.
