Only when discussing Bugatti can that be considered a disappointment... Anyway, its The Black Car's link to another entry in Bugatti's back catalogue that is of real interest.

The missing car, chassis no. 57453, was the second of the four built. It too was known as La Voiture Noire, and was originally delivered to Jean Bugatti, son of company founder Ettore Bugatti.

It was then passed on to factory driver Robert Benois (winner of the 1937 24 Hours of Le Mans for Bugatti alongside Jean-Pierre Wimille) as a gift and later served as a factory demo car, before allegedly being shipped to Bordeaux during the Second World War.

So why has this mythical motoring creature vanished? Well, the car never actually had a registered owner, so there's no real paper trail tracking the car. What's more, Jean Bugatti died in a testing accident in 1939 and his untimely death left the company in a precarious position – jotting down where they've parked a car would've been low down on the priorities for a company that was on the ropes at the time.

It has been said that should the car ever be found, it could be worth almost £90 million, which would comfortably make it the most expensive car in history. It also makes the record-breaking pricetag of its modern-day replacement somewhat... right.
