Bugatti Gangloff Concept...classic

The Bugatti Gangloff Concept is a design study of a sleek supercar inspired by the 1938 Type 57 SC Atalante Coupe one-off. The project – virtual developed in 3D form – aims at reviving that golden era of motoring made of exclusive, handbuilt creations: “In times of commercial trash and plastic it is hard to see something that has a soul and is able to squeeze out a positive mark on the heart.”

...guzzi, guzzi

Think of a custom Moto Guzzi, and it’s invariably built in the ‘classic’ style: Timeless cafĂ© racer lines, muted colors and bare metal. I’m a fan of that look, but it’s also refreshing to see someone take a completely different approach—and pull it off spectacularly.

This rapier-sharp V50 is called ‘Opal’ and comes from Arno Overweel, founder of Rno Cycles in Culemborg, The Netherlands. The styling is dominated by a bold, rising waistline that shows off the V-twin motor beautifully. The balance of the revised frame is so good that I’m hoping Moto Guzzi’s own designers are taking note.
