Bugatti Type 57 to Type 251
The Type 57 and later variants (including the famous Atlantic and Atalante models) were of an entirely new design by Jean Bugatti, son of founder Ettore. A total of 710 were built between 1934 and 1940. Most Type 57s used a twin-cam 3257cc engine based on that of the Type 49 but heavily modified by Jean Bugatti. Unlike the chain-drive twin-cam engines of the Type 50 and 51, the 57's engine used gears to transmit power from the crankshaft. The original Type 57 was a touring car model produced from 1934 to 1940. It used the 3.3L (3257cc; 198cu in) engine from the Type 59 Grand Prix cars, producing 135hp (100kW). Top speed was 95 miles per hour (153km/h). It rode on a 130-inch (3,302mm) wheelbase and had a 53.1-inch (1,349mm) wide track. Road-going versions weighed about 2,100 pounds (950kg). Hydraulic brakes replaced the cable-operated units in 1938, a modification Ettore Bugatti hotly contested. Some 630 examples were produced. The original road-going Type 57 included a smaller version of the Royale's square-bottom horseshoe grille. The sides of the engine compartment were covered with thermostatically-controlled shutters. It was a tall car, contrary to the tastes of the time. Included are new model introductions and updates, road tests, full specifications and performance data plus historical features and classic salons. A total of 160 fully illustrated pages
