First shown at the 1995 Detroit auto show, the Chrysler Atlantic concept was born in the mind of Chrysler’s then president, Bob Lutz, when he and Chrysler styling head Tom Gale were serving as judges at the Pebble Beach concours in 1994. One of the classes at the show was concept cars, historic and modern. Lutz wanted Gale’s team to come up with something that would blow away the other companies concepts the following year. Lutz sketched out an idea on the proverbial napkin. From that sketch, which he never showed to his designers because he wanted their own ideas in a competition he held, Gale formulated the design brief: they were to look to the classic French cars of the 1930s, like Bugatti, Talbot-Lago, Delahaye and Delage, for their inspiration and create something radical enough to attract attention while combining Art Deco retro styling with modern automotive proportions. Bob Hubbach’s design, which was inspired by the 1938 Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic (hence the concept car’s name), won the competition.
