Clothing magnate Ralph Lauren’s ultra rare 1938 Bugatti 57SC Atlantic was named Best in Show at this past weekend’s 2013 Villa d’Este Concours de Elegance on Lake Como, Italy, one of the most exclusive classic car events in the world.
The black, art deco coupe has been featured in many advertisements for Lauren’s high-end fashion lines and is considered by many to be among the beautiful automobiles ever created.
Lauren’s car is one of just four that were built, the only other surviving example currently residing in the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard, Calif.
The Mullin Bugatti was purchased by the museum in 2010 for an undisclosed price believed to be in the neighborhood of $40 million, likely making it the most expensive car ever sold.
At least until Ralph puts his on Ebay.
But we wouldn’t go searching for it there anytime soon.
