$30 Million Car on Display: Bugatti, not Veyron

Back in May we reported that the Bugatti Veryon had some competition in the amount that it was worth, as a 1936 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic sold at auction for a staggering $30 million. We can now report that the world’s most expensive car is on show at the Mullin Automotive Museum based in Oxnard California.

According to USA Today, the museum is known for its collection of cars from the Art Deco era, so seems fitting to have such a car on show — even if it is for a limited time. I wonder if my Ford Mondeo will be worth that kind of money in 80 years time?

Whenever you say Bugatti to anyone now, all they can think of is the Veryon — yes this is a nice car but it does not have that special something that cars of yester-year has. The 57SC Atlantic is a fine example of how people put their soul into building a car back then — nowadays it is a robot that does all the work.

There are some cars that are still built by hand, but I am afraid that they are a dying bread. Only three Atlantics were built, and this particular one has certainly had its fair share of posh owners, such as Lord Victor Rothschild of London. Remember that the vehicle will only be on show for a limited time, so best visit the museum now before it is too late. Do you think that any car should be worth $30 million?

"Do you think that any car should be worth $30 million?"

If someone has the money and willing to exchange it for a vehicle of this vintage, why not?
