Bugatti Aerolithe Concept from Douglas Hogg

This stunning concept was created by 22 years old designer Douglas Hogg for his final project at Coventry University ( Automotive design course ). The prototype of this Bugatti concept is legendary vehicle showcased at the 1935 Paris Motor Show – Bugatti Electron Aerolithe. As Douglas explains, the concept is "a minimalist exercise in pure surfacing […] inspired by Ettore Bugatti’s principles of automotive design and the legacy of the original Aerolithe." In this design the doors – which integrate part of the dashboard – adopt an original opening system, dubbed "split opening canopy", which "adds drama to getting in and out gives easy access to the interior."
