The classical shape with a long, stretched bonnet and
gently curving cabin evokes a sense of fluidity and movement.
It doesn't look particularly sporty or dynamic. It does

of the trademark styling elements of the Type 57 Atlantic.
The enclosed wheel arches are another prominent design

The proposed drivetrain for the Bugatti Type 57 Evoluzione
is a front-mid mounted W16 engine derived from the Veyron's.
However in the Type 57 Evoluzione the engine would be
modified to run on hydrogen.
