    The story of the Atlantic begins with the even more elusive 'Aerolithe' prototype shown at the Paris Motor Show in Named after the Greek word for 'meteor', the car sported a beautiful aerodynamic body with a highly unusual construction. This was needed because of the extensive use of the magnesium alloy 'Electron'. Developed in the aeronautical industry, this material was as light as it was strong but had one major drawback; it was also very volatile.

    As a result welding the panels was not an option. Instead they were riveted together, giving the body a very distinct look with a 'spine' running front to back and over the front and rear fenders. Some historians doubt Electron was really used for the Aerolithe but what is certain is that the subsequent Atlantics all featured aluminium bodies. They nevertheless featured riveted panels, presumably for aesthetic reasons. A more noticeable change was the switch to the latest evolution of the Type 57 chassis.
