3C 132 is a good example of a DRAGN with "bottleneck" lobes; that is, the hotspots and the high-brightness emission behind them projects out of much more diffuse bridges. There are several other examples of this sort of structure in the Atlas, for instance 3C 184.1. There is very faint emission to the east of the SE lobe, visible in the C20 image.

An earlier VLA snapshot image was given by Neff, Roberts & Hutchings (1995).
