Delahaye USA's have created a stylized reinterpretation of Ralph Lauren's 1937 Bugatti Atlantic.
Their press release states, "From the outset, we didn't want to build an exact replica of the Atlantic. Artisans like Erik Kouk, Jean De Dobbeleer, Crayville, and others have done admirable work faithfully reproducing the 1937 classic. Instead, our goal was to build a modern, stylized tribute to the 57S that still respected Jean Bugatti's original vision. The Pacific is the result." .
With an 127-inch wheelbase, the Pacific's custom steel-tube chassis measures ten inches longer than the 1937 original. Cook's design gives the Pacific a masterful road presence with substantially more driver and passenger room.
A fuel-injected 4,988 cc (304 cubic inch) BMW 12-cylinder motor mated to an electronically controlled four-speed BMW automatic transmission provides power to the Pacific.
After four years of work, Delahaye USA of Long Valley, NJ is presenting the “Pacific”, their carbon fiber and fiberglass bodied tribute to Ralph Lauren’s fabled 40 million dollar Type 57sc 1938 Bugatti Atlantic.
