Most Expensive Car In The World Displayed At Auto Museum

The fabulous 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, after selling for an estimated $30-40 million at auction is the most expensive car in the world. Now it's on display.

The Williamson car as it's known, was until earlier this year part of the collection amassed by the late Dr. Peter Williamson. It was purchased from the good Doctor's estate by the Mullin Automotive Museum for an undisclosed amount, but estimates put the transaction price between $30 million and $40 million, easily making it the most expensive car in the world. The Pebble Beach Concours winner was put on display August 3rd for what the museum is calling a temporary display.

Just two of these fantastic French masterpieces survive today, one in the care of the Mullin Museum, the other in black is in the collection of Ralph Lauren. If you ever want to see one with your own eyes, now's probably your best chance and a pilgrimage to the Oxnard, California museum may be in order.
