Everyone knows the Veyron, but have you ever wondered what else Bugatti has to offer?
The ridiculously fast Bugatti Veyron has made the French automaker a household name. At least, that is, in households where cars are loved. The Veyron casting as big a shadow as it does, though, it would be all too easy to overlook these other designs that have worn the EB badge - whether officially or otherwise. As the Veyron nears the end of its lifecycle and Bugatti prepars for what comes next, don't be too surprised to see some of these concepts reaching elite automobile dealerships in the coming years.
The Bugatti Aerolithe by Douglas Hogg is a modern-day tribute to the Bugatti Electron Aerolithe prototype that debuted at the 1935 Paris Motor Show. Hogg designed the vehicle for the year 2025, but don't hold your breath in anticipation of this car ever making it to market.
Delahaye USA is offering you the chance to live out your mobster dreams with its recreation of the 1937 Bugatti Type 57S. The company has created a highly detailed tribute dubbed the "Bella Figura" Bugnotti Coupe that sells for $450,000.
Giving your kid the keys to your Veyron is a terrible idea, which is why the Harrington Group has created this half-scale Bugatti T35. This pint-sized automobile has everything a young Bugatti enthusiast could want, including: an optional manual transmission, disc brakes and a wood-rimmed steering wheel.
Veyron owners who with families have been patiently awaiting the arrival of the Galibier 16C. This concept has been playing hide and seek since 2009, as Bugatti tries to see whether there's enough demand for a four-door sedan with 1000 horsepower and a price tag over $1.7 million.
Now that sister brands Lamborghini and Bentley are working on SUVs, speculation turns to Bugatti to follow the same path. Artist Christer Stormark took the initiative for the company, rendering this Veyron-inspired crossover. It's a little chunky, but as long as has the power and the prestige, it's all good.
