Then there’s Instagram’s stigegyptiancousin, who suggests that Grand Theft Auto Online should add this car to the game. But why limit appreciation of the Bugatti to a game? daltoonnnn on Instagram described the one-off as the “most expensive hot wheel I’ve seen.” Not all responses were as straightforward.

As Jonny Lieberman wrote about the Bugatti, “I might also add that for nearly $19 million I’d like a little more power than some bozo in a 1,500-hp Chiron.” And despite the slinky styling, Stefan Walter on Facebook said that he found there was too much Divo and not enough Atlantic in the design, adding that it would make a killer Batmobile.

“That is the most beautiful car I have ever seen, but why in the hell is it not electric?”
Perhaps our favorite reaction was from Walter T Harrington. Keep that dream alive, Walter:
“My credit score is 750, wonder what type of financing I could get?“
