布加迪's 57 model range is about as desirable as an antique car comes, but this particular 57SC Sports Tourer may take the cake after it sold for nearly $10 million at auction last weekend.
The 57SC crossed the block at Bonhams'在阿米莉亚岛巡回赛的场边拍卖'Elegance, where the auctioneer called it the most valuable 布加迪 ever.
That's a rather misleading claim, however, since a 1931 布加迪 Royale held the record for the most valuable car ever for many years after being sold by Christie's for $9.8 million in 1987. For the record, 那 is nearly $21 million today. And there was also a 57SC大西洋 那 2010年以超过3,000万美元的价格售出.
This particular car, which was bodied by Vanden Plas, was first displayed at the London Motor Show. Later, its wealthy owners raced it in both the United States 和 in Europe prior to World War II. Notably, it was also featured in some of 布加迪's period promotional materials. It was originally finished in gray with dark red accents.
