This two-tone green 1937 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atalante was only just overshadowed at Lime Rock Park because it was in the presence of the two pinnacle Type 57 SC models, the Atlantic Coupe and the Gangloff Drophead Coupe. Anywhere else it would’ve easily taken best in show.
Only 17 Atalante Coupes were built, and this green one is particularly elegant. Like the Type 57 SC Atlantic I posted recently, this Atalante was also very much a hypercar back in 1937 in the same way the Chiron is today. The modern car may be much faster, but I’d argue the old car wore it better.
Enjoy the photos.
