Classic Car: Bugatti Type 57S Atlantic

The Bugatti Type 57S Atlantic is a beautiful classic car that recently became the most expensive car ever sold.

“Considered by some to be the most beautiful pre-war car, the Atlantic body Type 57S featured flowing coupe lines with a pronounced dorsal seam running front to back. Just four Atlantics were made. Only two of the cars survive. One is in the collection of Ralph Lauren, the second was owned by Dr. Peter Williamson, and won the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance. Williamson’s car was sold for between $30 and $40 million at an auction in May 2010 to the Mullin Automotive Museum located in Oxnard, California.”
