Bugatti picks up where it left off in the 1930s, licensing its name to speedboats from built from carbon fiber, inspired by the lines of its classics.
A year after showing off its extraterrestrial, 46.2-foot yacht concept, Mercedes-Benz Style and Silver Arrows Marine have a revealed a two-meter mock-up of the watercraft's final exterior, along with detailed interior design renderings.
