whilst car designs are consistently getting faster, lighter, and more streamlined, there’s certainly something to be said for automobile aethetics that hark back to their more classical roots. the bugatti 57T concept car certainly hits the sweet spot between old and new, combining the signature curved doors of the chiron and its hallmark two-tone colorway with the classic designs of jean bugatti himself. the type 57T coupé—planned by automobile designer arthur nustas—takes the classic 57S chassis and updates it for modern-day driving.

with iconic bugatti headlamps and a triangular-shaped radiator, the design seamlessly combines the futuristic with the old-school. arthur nustas incorporates a long hood to further push the vintage aesthetic, and plush leather interior furnishings that match the outside paint job. nustas depicts the concept vehicle in bugatti’s hallmark two-tone blue color way, as well as a matt black and silver variant, a copper, black and white model and a icy blue version with mirrored sides.

  • A nice nostalgic touch would be to bring back curb feelers if you want to park that beast. Could be inspiration for a 2020 Viper.
