The styling was influenced by the Bugatti Type 57 and art-deco design.
The Bugatti Stratos is a product of Bruno Delussu, a graphic designer based in France. The concept was created purely as a fantasy vehicle with absolutely no intentions for a production model. As Bruno states, "I was not limited by the complex technicalities that a production line of such a car would require and found myself creating this vehicle for the viewer's eyes pleasure only."

A variety of sources were used as inspiration for the design. The overall shape of the Stratos concept was inspired by the streamlined design of the Bugatti Type 57, while the front end uses some of the design cues from the Alfa Romeo 6C 2500 Mille Miglia. Delussu also added a touch of "futuristic optimism" similar to that found in the Streamline locomotives of Raymond Loewy.

The aim was to create a very aerodynamic and fluid profile, similar to the wing of an airplane. This shape is then broken up with knife sharp style lines to accentuate certain angles of the car.

Delussu said of the concept; "Often sports cars are compact, nervous and aggressive. I wanted the opposite. That's why I prolonged the frame and created a voluptuously streamlined [shape] that glides smoothly through the air like a hand over silk."
