Three of a kind

In continuation of discussing Fashion mogul, Ralph Lauren’s impressive car collection, another timeless vehicle comes into discussion. This is his 1938 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic Coupe. It is said that this is the best-known Bugatti cars. The “S” actually stands for “surbaissé” (“lowered”), but many feels that it stood for “sport”.

Based on the “Aérolithe” concept car of 1935, The Atlantic body Type 57S had “flowing coupe lines with a pronounced dorsal seam running front to back.” Only three of this model was ever made and Ralph Lauren has one of it in his garage. The other lucky owner is Dr. Peter Williamson, who won the 2003 Pebble Beach Car show with a SC57 Atlantic. The other vehicle can no longer be found.
