• Bugatti Type 57S Bella Figura Coupe by Delahaye

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.

The car looked like a modern car with a touch of classic. The concept appears to be based on a classic car but create some innovation to make it more modern. I like it!

This is way cooler than the original, replica or not. And the price is quite high but it really worth it. I am pretty sure that this classic car will look great on red or black paint.

Lookatmycar, what is wrong with classic cars? Well, what is wrong with you? Hehehe kidding! Of course, we have different wants in terms of cars. But hey, classic cars are more deceiving and impressive than sedans or audis. Look at this one, have you seen very much alike of this car? Not likely, because it is build to be unique and outstanding.

What’s wrong with classic cars? However, I must say that this is not really impressive, it is so unlike to the other car. Yeah! It maybe looks so exotic and strange on its platform and styling and I also don’t like the fact that it is only a single seater.

I don’t like the car because I don’t want classic cars to come back. It uses a V12 engine, but it only delivers 550 HP. Aside from that, it is just a single seater. Who do you think will consider this car?
