There are many people from the affluent class who love to add vintage cars to their list of rare collectibles. The Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic is the most expensive vintage car which was auctioned at an amount between $30 and $40 million. This is not at all a surprising amount for this exclusive vintage car made in 1936. Limited editions of only 4 cars were manufactured in that year among which only 3 are still available. This car is still considered one of the best automobiles ever created. The teardrop bodywork of this car was designed with exclusive features. The car is a lightweight automobile with a powerful engine to run on roads at a maximum speed of 200km per hour. The doors were designed in a kidney shape and the windows were also designed to match the style of the doors. The entire car was constructed out of an alloy of aluminum and magnesium which is highly flammable. So instead of welding, riveting is the only option to fix every part of this luxurious vintage car.
