A three years project from the Americans at Delahaye was presented as a carbon fiber tribute to Jean Bugatti and the Type 57S, with the car being more like a prototype than a replica.
The Bella Figura Coupe by Delahaye is 194 inches long and 76 inches wide, with a 127 inches wheelbase and a floor to ceiling “distance” of 44 inches, pressing on the road with its total weight of 3.000 pounds.
“We are building air conditioned cars with power / brakes / steering / windows and modern engines which you can actually drive and afford”, as the company explains.
Available in both left and right hand drive, the Bugatti Type 57S Bella Figura Coupe made by Delahaye, is powered by a 5.0 liter V12 M70 BMW engine and the production car, which will be manufactured from Novemeber, will be equipped with a 6.2 liter LSA Cadillac engine, which will develop 556 horsepower.
For customers who know their engines an inline Jaguar six will also be available, along with the top of the line Mercedes V12.
