Concept: Bugatti Type 57 T Designer: Arthur B. Nustas Odds of Production: Better Ask Bugatti
For his Bugatti Type 57 T concept, automotive artist Arthur B. Nustas took a page from the past to create what he believes could be a new chapter in the French marque’s story. “I was inspired by the Bugatti Type 57,” says Nustas, a digital designer at Nissan Motor Corporation in Japan, “yet desired to modernize it.”
His tribute to Jean Bugatti’s memorable motorcar, which was produced from 1934 to 1940, blends aspects of that classic design with those of the marque’s modern-day supercars. “Bugatti’s latest trends were an influence, but I kept the early model’s main characteristics, such as the long hood, very low back, and rounded front headlights,” Nustas says. “The original car communicates a very unique aesthetic, and I wanted to keep that design language alive.” Here’s hoping Bugatti gives life to Nustas’s concept.
