The Bugatti Aerolithe concept is the work of Douglas Hogg,
a 2010 graduate of Coventry University's Transport design
The concept is a proposal for an glamorous sports coupe
with dramatic swooping lines.
The name recalls a Bugatti prototype
Created for the year 2025, the Aerolithe is named after
a prototype vehicle Bugatti unveiled at the 1935 Paris
Motor Show. That car, the Bugatti Electron Aerolithe,
was the vehicle which spawned legendary Bugatti Atlantic
The styling of Hogg's vehicle, as you might expect, takes
much of its inspiration from the original car. Although
to say the Aerolithe looks traditional or classic in its
appearance would be a lie. It looks stunning and contemporary
- with a genuine sense of originality.
The dramatic doors of the concept open upwards and forward
to create an expansive opening. The doors actually take
part of the dashboard with them as they are opened providing
a truly unique experience for the driver and passenger.
The proposed drivetrain for the Aerolithe concept is an
advanced gas turbine-electric hybrid system. The electric
motor - which drives the rear wheels - offers up 450 horsepower.
