The Atalanta bodyshell, named after a goddess of Greek mythology, was an interpretation of the 1935 Aerolithe coupe, the prototype that also inspired the Atlantic. Designed by Jean Bugatti as a two-seater sports coupe, the Atalante was among the rarest bodies offered by Bugatti on type 57 chassis. 57523 first belonged to Mr Gandon of Paris who acquired it on April 16, 1937 It was originally painted black with a black interior. Released in 1952, the original 57S engine was damaged and a supercharged SC engine was then installed by its new owner.
The car left in the United States around 1959-1960 and was sold to George Huguely who then resold it without the engine, again damaged, to Donald Versley. He found a new engine block and converted it into an SC configuration with dry sump lubrication and a compressor.
The car passed into the hands of different owners before ending up in the Blackhawk collection. The car was fully restored and completed in 2006.
It is now repainted in its original black color.
 
A jewel of the history of the automobile, a true work of art.
I am proud to present this new 1/18 model available now. It's not just a miniature collection, but also a work of art in its own right. Every detail has been thought of with the utmost care to bring you satisfaction and joy. The manufacturing was a long process of 6 months of work, where many trades and all their expertise to get the best quality. The very limited quantity makes it an object of rare covetousness and only this series will be manufactured. I remain at your disposal for any information or to treat your order.
With passion.
Ilario Chiera
