An extremely rare 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic belonging to the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, California, was awarded Best of Show at this year’s Concours d’Elegance in Phoenix, Arizona. It is one of only two in existence, and is widely regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful automobiles. The Atlantic, designed by Jean Bugatti, makes use of many aeronautical styling touches, as was the style at the time. The aluminum body and lightweight chassis are propelled by an intricate straight-8 engine, which made the Type 57SC one of the fastest cars of its day.
