It's recognized as the world's most valuable car, and it's on display in an automotive museum in Oxnard.The public will be able to see the 1936 Bugati Type 57SC Atlantic for a limited time at the newly opened Mullin Automotive Museum in Oxnard.

Over the years, museum officials have said that the car has gone through six owners.

It was first bought new by Lord Victor Rothschild of the Rothschild banking family in 1936.

"I think a lot of people point to this and say it was the most sophisticated, technological, stylistic, car of its age built in extremely limited numbers for the aristocracy," described museum curator Andrew Reilly.

Only a couple of the cars remain today, and they're in collections were they'll virtually never be sold.

The Bugati on display in Oxnard is currently owned by an anonymous owner and is considered priceless.
