Bringing back the spirit of a classic car takes years and years of work. For example to create the Bugatti Type 57S Bella Figura Coupe, Delahaye USA needed a total of three years of hard work. But the result is very impressive. Their car, the Figura Coupe pays tribute to Jean Bugatti and his elegant Type 57S.
The car is not just a replica, it is in fact a stretched and widened coupe which comfortably fits two six-foot-six occupants while respecting the classic Bugatti look and feel. The car features a body with hinged and latched inner and outer door, double layer roof, while the door hinges are custom steel copies of Bugatti Atlantic, with door swing study and stops. The car is a "Full Carbon" construction made with four layers of 5.7 oz. 2 x 2 twill carbon fiber.
For the engine option, Delahaye has used an all aluminum 5 liter M70 BMW V-12, but the production version will feature a a new supercharged 556 HP 6.2 liter LSA Cadillac engine. The company will be also offering a much powerful version that will use a RennTech twin turbocharged Mercedes V-12 engine, but this version will cost about $120,000.
