One of the rarest cars on the road today, the Bugatti Hypercars follow the Bugatti Chiron and Divo.

According to Auto Josh, the car is owned by South African-based Zimbabwean businessman, Ian Chamunorwa Nyarungwe Haruper.

Zambia Revenue Authority disclosed that the owner had paid all the taxes relating to its clearance. 

“The only thing we can confirm is that taxes were paid. The other details we can’t give out because we need to respect the tax payer’s confidentiality as guided by the law and our values,” said Topsy Sikalinda, the Zambia Revenue Authority spokesperson.
