For the first time since 1939, a new Atalanta motor car will be officially launched. The vehicle will debut at the third International Concours of Elegance at Hampton Court Palace 5-7 September 2014.
The new Atalanta maintains true fidelity to its predecessor to offer a unique motoring experience. 90% of the component parts are designed and engineered directly by Atalanta, including castings, forgings and fabrications. Furthermore, it is a traditionally hand-crafted aluminium-over-ash coach-built structure.
Managing Director of Atalanta Motors, Martyn Corfield, explains: “Staying true to the original Atalanta design principles, we have enhanced the positive and enjoyable characteristics of vintage motoring in a style that is relevant and exciting today.” He continues: “As in the 1930’s, Atalanta Motors provides the opportunity to commission an individual driving machine to exacting requirements. The new sports car readily offers an exhilarating drive with assured handling and a supremely comfortable ride.”
As well as seeing chassis number 1 of the brand new model, visitors to the Concours of Elegance may also be able to see a 1937 Atalanta.
Limited commissions for the Atalanta are being taken and each is built to individual specifications, making each vehicle completely unique vehicle.
