After three years of hard-working on this one of a kind project, the American specialists at Delahaye USA considers the Bella Figura prototype is a carbon fiber tribute to Jean Bugatti and the Type 57S, much more than just a replica.
The Bella Figura Coupe by Delahaye is 194 inches long and 76 inches wide, with a 127 inches wheelbase and a floor to ceiling “distance” of 44 inches, pressing on the road with its total weight of 3.000 pounds.
The Bella Figura Type 57S is available in both left-hand-drive and right-hand-drive in turnkey complete, turnkey minus (that is, no engine and transmission), roller body (body, chassis and wheels only) and self-assembly kits both in the U.S. and the UK.
Performance wise, the first prototype car has an all aluminum 5 litre M70 BMW V-12, while the first production car, set to enter the manufacturing process in November - will have a new supercharged 556 HP 6.2 litre LSA Cadillac engine. The top of the line is a RENNTECH (Lake Park, FL) twin turbocharged Mercedes V-12 engine, but an inline Jaguar six is also possible.
