OXNARD, CA (AP).- Must see! Used car, light blue, one of a kind. Expect sticker shock!

A 1936 Bugatti that recently sold for more than $30 million went on display Tuesday at the Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard.

The museum says the 1936 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic is one of only three ever made and was first purchased by Lord Victor Rothschild of London.

In 1939, it was sent back to the factory to be supercharged. The owners have included Dr. Peter Williamson, who bought the car in 1971 for $59,000 and restored it.

The car sold in May in a deal brokered by Gooding & Co. It says the unidentified buyer paid between $30 million and $40 million.

The museum says it is not sure how long it will be displayed.

The Mullin Automotive Museum is an homage to the art deco and the machine age – eras that produced exquisite art and magnificent automobiles. The museum is home to examples of the finest of historic French automobiles from the Bugatti to the Voisin as well as significant and representative decorative art from this same period.

The Mullin Automotive Museum building was previously owned by legendary newspaperman Otis Chandler who once housed a collection of vintage automobiles and motorcycles in what is now the revamped museum structure. After Mr. Chandler’s death in 2006, Mr. Mullin acquired the property, then called “The Vintage,” and began an extensive remodel utilizing the talents of architect David Hertz and contractor Interscape Construction. Interior design and fabrication were done by The Scenic Route.
