After the bankruptcy of the first manufacturer, disappearance of the moulds and re-starting  of the project, the Atalante finally appears in the impressively large size of 1:12 scale. It is painted in red and black or yellow and black. The project was finished under supervision of Bugatti s.a.s.

The bonnet and doors can be opened and the engine shows even the smallest details. The interior is lovingly detailed. Underneath there is a working drive train, suspension and steering.
