It may come as a surprise to learn that of the 10 most expensive cars sold at auction in 2020, only one was sold before the pandemic. That’s as much a measure of how long we’ve been in the pandemic as it is how much people are still willing to spend.

What’s more interesting is the fact that the five most expensive cars sold at auction were all made by the same manufacturer, namely Bugatti, and all were built before 1939. According to Hagerty, the last time so many prewar cars were in the top 10 was in 2011.

Three of those Bugattis (a 1928 Type 35C, a 1937 Type 57S Atalante, and a 1935 Type 59 Sports) all sold at the same auction. Number 10 on the list, a 1971 Lamborghini Miura P400 SV Speciale, was also sold at the same Gooding & Company “Passion of a Lifetime” auction held in September.

All told, the top 10 sold for a total of more than $61 million, though only one sold for tens of millions. Also of note, there was only one Ferrari on the list, and it wasn’t even that old.

So here are the 10 most expensive cars sold at auction in 2020.

Why was the Type 59 Sports worthy of being not just the most expensive car sold in 2020, but the most expensive Bugatti ever sold at auction?

Well, the Type 59 Sports was considered to be the ultimate Bugatti Grand Prix car. This particular example, which was once owned by King Leopold III of Belgium, was raced at the Monaco Grand Prix and won the Belgian Grand Prix with Rene Dreyfus. Afterwards, it received revisions to its chassis, bodywork, and drivetrain and went into sports car racing where it also had success.


Bruce Wayne’s Batmobile made its first appearance on the season two premiere of the CW’s “Batwoman” series, but we almost got to see it sooner.

According to showrunner Caroline Dries in an interview with Insider, the car was supposed to appear at the end of season one when they started designing it, but the OVID-19 pandemic got in the way and they had to push its reveal back. She then went on to say the delay was fortuitous, as they got to introduce the car as a if it were a new “character” in the premiere.

The new Batmobile appeared on Sunday’s premiere when Tommy Elliot (Warren Christie), posing as Bruce Wayne, breaks into the Batcave and steals it. He then uses the vehicle to chase down Ryan Wilder (Javicia Leslie) to steal Batwoman’s suit so he can rule over Gotham as a Batman imposter.

The car being used for the Batmobile is a Corvette, specifically a C7. Dries said it’s “based on a new Corvette chassis” which is partially correct, as while the mid-engined C8 is the newest generation, the C7 is still relatively new considering the Corvette’s been around for over 60 years. The car receives the VFX treatment to give it its wings and “extra gack,” as Dries called it. And even if it’s not the brand new Corvette, it’s certainly an upgrade from the motorcycle Kate Kane (Ruby Rose) rode around Gotham on in season one.

據外媒消息,特斯拉正起訴 1 名前員工,指控他到職 3 天就開始竊取公司機密文件,並這些機密轉移至個人儲存帳戶。

綜合外媒報導,根據週五的 1 份法律文件,特斯拉指控 1 位名為 Alex Khatilov 的軟體工程師,於去年 12 月 28 日到職 3 天後,就開始竊取超過 2.6 萬份代碼文件,這些資料涉及特斯拉的一些自動化業務,像是訂購零件及車輛交付。

《彭博》報導,特斯拉讓美國地方法官 Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers 相信了這足以構成嚴重威脅,法官在週五對 Khatilov 下達限制令,要求他立即保存並退還所有文件、紀錄及電郵,並於 2 月 4 日進行遠端出庭。

根據法庭文件,Khatilov 向特斯拉安全部門表示,他僅轉移少數幾項私人行政文件。但特斯拉表示,在調查人員 1 月 6 日查獲數千份機密文件後,Khatilov 又稱他忘了這些文件,且試圖在接受調查前將文件銷毀。

特斯拉補充說,它們無法確認 Khatilov 先前是否將這些檔案複製,或是發送至其他地方,但這些文件對特斯拉來說具有極高價值,對競爭對手來說亦是如此。

但 Khatilov 向《紐約郵報》表示,他的工作本身就涉及其中一些文件,但他是無意間將文件移至個人 Dropbox,且不知道裡面有 2.6 萬份文件,稱這次的事件純屬意外。特斯拉則在訴訟堅稱,Khatilov 是在裝傻,且試圖將證據湮滅。

據報導,特斯拉過去也指控中國籍工程師曹光植,指他竊取特斯拉駕駛輔助技術 Autopilot(自動駕駛)的原始程式碼。
