DELAHAYE USA present a new carbon fiber tribute to Jean Bugatti and his
elegant Type 57S. Much more than a replica, this artistically stylized,
stretched and widened coupe comfortably fits two six-foot-six occupants.
While respecting the classic Bugatti look and feel, the Bella Figura is
built to modern standards in all other respects, including air
conditioning, power brakes, steering, and windows, choice of interior
and exterior finishes, and modern affordable engines selected to suit
21st century driving conditions
The BELLA FIGURA Type 57S coupe we will debut in August is a prototype.
In November 2011 we will begin manufacturing “production” carbon fiber
and composite cars, and there will be numerous improvements in those
bodies. We will use high tech VECTORPLY 1708 +/- 45 biaxial weave
composite with AOC vinyl ester and polyester resins, BOSTIC fiber
reinforced plastic and AIREX BALTEK core materials (in some cases bonded
to aluminum). It’s clearly the highest quality composite project we’ve
ever been associated with in our twelve year history. We will also begin
having aluminum bodies hand hammered for selected customers.
