OXNARD, Calif. -- 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.
