Is this the most expensive car ever sold?

A Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic has sold in America for a fee reported to be as much as $40m.

An undisclosed buyer has taken ownership of the 1936 car, which won the prestigious title of best in show at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concourse d'Elegance.
The Atlantic is a phenomenally rare car, with only three having been built after the prototype was unveiled at the 1935 Paris motor show.

The glorious car was bought from the estate of the former owner, and is said to have gone to a "devoted connoisseur". That should mean this beautiful part of automotive history is preserved in the same remarkable condition for a good while longer.
