The 1931 Bugatti Royale Kellner Coupe is the most expensive car ever made. The car was sold for $8.7 million.
Ettore Bugatti had dreams of building the biggest, most luxurious car ever made and selling it to kings and queens around the world. Royal customers balked at spending what Bugatti was charging, and so only six of the cars were built, and only three sold.
This fifteen foot Bugatti Royale powered by Its huge 12.7-litre engine that was originally meant for use in aircraft is one of the largest ever fitted into a car. Bodied by Paris coachbuilder Kellner, this car was bricked into Bugatti’s French garage to hide it from the Nazis.
