Sources state that the above design contraption was by Bugatti itself, but it was probably not.
One source (Martin Lerma in Robb Report) states that the new take is a worthy homage to the original. Well, I doubt if Martin has ever seen a real Bugatti. His comments:
Martin goes on with: "Like something straight out of a time-bent film noir, the marque’s (which it probably is not) Next-57 concept is a streamlined take on the Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupé that it first created back in the 1930s. Its silhouette expands on the original’s sweeping body lines and takes them to their limit for both aerodynamics and an aesthetic that’s just as alluring today as it was nearly a century ago. Bugatti’s hallmark horseshoe grille at the front pays homage to its design tradition while creating a welcome textural disruption to the otherwise glossy exterior."
As if the exterior itself is not enough, even the brothel-like interior receives praise from Martin:
"The cabin itself has a teardrop outline with a likewise flowing interior enhanced by extensive use of hot pink suede upholstery across the single seat, door interiors and steering wheel. But, fortunately, all of this extravagance can be appreciated even by those not operating the vehicle as a ridged glass roof provides improved visibility. Plus, quite simply, it just looks painfully cool." (painful yes, but cool no)
Apparently, Martin does have some knowledge of the real Bugattis, because he ends on a more serious note:
Finally, I found who really is the designer of this... " "... It is a guy called "Cong".
