Designer Pawel Czyzewski has taken a stab at what a new Bugatti halo coupe could look like. The Gangloff Concept lifts inspiration from the 1938 Bugatti Type 57C S Atalante Coupe. That beautiful machine wore a body crafted by a French coachbuilder Gangloff, hence the concept’s moniker.

It is also wearing a few cues from the current batch of Veyron hyper cars, including the horseshoe grille and the overall cabin architecture, the Gangloff is what the luxury coupes of our childhood dreams looked like. The concept also paid homage to the 1937 Bentley Type 57C Atlantic, particularly the symmetric “spine” that starts from the front grille all the to the rear window, splitting it in the process.

While the LED headlights are no longer a breakthrough, the concept agreeably has a heart-stopping profile. With proud, arching fenders and eye-slit side glass, certainly fit for a Bugatti machine. Unfortunately, this design isn’t officially affiliated with the French automaker, which means the Gangloff concept will not come true anytime soon.
