The American specialists at Delahaye USA have spent no less than three years working on the project you see in the adjacent images. In what they consider to be a carbon fiber tribute to Jean Bugatti and the Type 57S, the Bella Figura prototype is much more than just a replica.

We are talking here about a highly stylized, stretched and widened coupe that comfortably fits two six-foot-six occupants while respecting the classic Bugatti look and feel.

In fact, the dimensions of the Bella Figura Coupe are as follows: wheelbase 127-inches, length 194-inches, width 76-inches, floor to ceiling 44-inches. Estimated weight of a completed car is 3,000 pounds.

“We’re building air conditioned cars with power brakes/steering/windows and modern engines you can actually drive and afford!” the company explains.

These cars are designed and built in the USA (polished aluminum body built in UK). The Bella Figura is available in right or left hand drive as a complete finished “turnkey” vehicle; as a “turnkey minus” where you bolt in your engine and transmission (an importing advantage outside USA); as a “roller” (body on chassis with wheels); or in “self-assembly” form for the build-it-yourself enthusiast.

Performance wise, the first prototype car has an all aluminum 5 litre M70 BMW V-12, while the first production car, set to enter the manufacturing process in November - will have a new supercharged 556 HP 6.2 litre LSA Cadillac engine. The top of the line is a RENNTECH (Lake Park, FL) twin turbocharged Mercedes V-12 engine, but an inline Jaguar six is also possible.
