The Type 57 T is not a Bugatti but is Pure Bugatti DNA

This Bugatti Type 57 T is a concept inspired by Arthur B Nustras, a talented industrial designer working at Nissan in Atsugi (Japan) and not at Molsheim. But does it really matter? The designer did a work inspired by passion and he produced something with a pure Bugatti DNA, whatever he is working for Nissan or Bugatti. He mixed the visual language of the brand, preserved  a 100 years old DNA and mixed the whole with the Chiron.

The passion and the talent of Arthur B Nustras can seed something at Bugatti? It is hard to say but the Type 57 T is already part of the history of the brand – just search for Bugatti images on the web to see how Arthur is already part of the Bugatti story.

You can review all the Bugatti models from 1900 here.

The DNA of the french automaker is preserved since 1900:

  • Originating from a family of artists
  • Masterpieces of automotive elegance
  • Surpassing the limits of Technics

We can also take notice that Bugatti, in 127 years of history, built 6 major prototypes referenced here.

The Bugatti Type 57 T

The Bugatti Type 57 T is introduced as a concept study by Arthur B. Nustras.  The artist on his blog post about the Type 57 T show different images of the Bugatti Type 57 Atlantic.

Then, the drawing shows how the new design take some shapes from the original Type 57 Atlantic to morph into something that inherit from the global evolution of the automobile.

The final rendering is a clear invitation to drive.

The Bugatti DNA

The characteristic style features of a genuine Bugatti is present in the Bugatti Type 57 T and seems in line with the DNA of the brand.

The car is not only shaped by the constraints of the wind but by the vivid spirit that still inspires everyone in the company. The design is not futuristic and do not requires special building Technics. The overall size of the vehicle matches with the current models.

The Type 57 T could be built by the 20 artists in the Molsheim production facility that assemble the 1,800 parts of the Bugatti Chiron today.

Some fact should not change with the Type 57 T. For example, the only electronic tool used in chassis assembly for a Bugatti Chiron is the EC nutrunner system, which gives the assembly worker a simple signal when the right torque value is reached.



if comparable

 – it no longer is Bugatti

Bugatti also set the benchmarks with a commercial car that can go up to 431.072 km/h, and 0-250 km/h in 8 seconds.

The brand’s legend cannot be reduced simply to outstanding automotive design and glorious Motorsports victories.

Bugatti is inseparably bound up with art, culture and lifestyle. No other brand is the subject of as many anecdotes that go far beyond the topic of automotive development as Bugatti.

Advancing Automobiles

How could we evolve mobility to assist us with future issues?

Vehicles spend a lot of meaningless time being idle, alternatively how could such a revolutionized piece of machinery assist us with resolving issues we would come to face daily in the future, issues regarding; high energy demands, traffic congestion and parking spaces.

Inspired by mutualism in biology, the mutual benefit of two species, my proposal aims to design a vehicle that would come to benefit urban cities with the use of sustainable solar energy along with autonomous driving technology. The outcome of this research therefore explores solutions and creates a planned scenario allowing this vehicle to assist us in our daily lives, while providing personal flexible mobility.
