Wheels of Fortune - Bugatti Classic

Heirs of the late Dr. Harold Carr hit the jackpot when they discovered a rare Bugatti Type 57S two-seat Atalante coupe in a barn located in Newcastle England. The existence of the dust-covered car was a complete surprise. Apparently Carr purchased the car in 1955. The car is 72 years old with an odometer reading of 26,284 miles.

It recently sold at an auction in Paris for 3 million pounds.
BBC has the story, photos, and video.
