Delahaye USA has been at work developing and building the Bella Figura, a modern tribute to the Bugatti Type 57S, for more than three years. The company has finally (mostly) finished the prototype, and presented it to the public for the very first time at this year's Quail Motorsports Gathering.

Built on a custom chassis developed by the Roadster Shop in Mundelein, IL, the Bella Figura is available as a complete car, a turnkey-minus (without engine and transmission) or as a rolling chassis. Delahaye USA also offers right or left hand drive versions, and either a composite or aluminum body.

Company founder Terry Cook tells us that they're currently taking orders and should be able to deliver the first customer car by the end of the year. As for pricing, the Bella Figura starts reasonably but can be as expensive as you want to make it. A chassis and low-cost composite body runs under $50,000, but Delahaye USA says that a complete, alloy-bodied car will cost around $450,000. You can view more details and options over at
