1931 BUGATTI ‘TYPE 41’ ROYALE KELLNER COUPE, $20,343,468 (adjusted for inflation), SOLD IN 1987 FOR $9.7 MILLION


The car was sold over 20 years ago. We wonder what it would cost if it ever went up for auction again. The enormous 15-foot masterpiece of a car is one of only 6 ever built. Ettore Bugatti originally planned to build 25 units and sell them to royalty. But none of the the 6 Royales were ever sold to any royals. This particular car is straight out of Ettore’s personal collection, as it was preserved in a garage on his estate, surviving WWII behind a protective wall.
