“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.
With an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 engine that makes a whopping 1200 Horsepower, the Bugatti Veyron can do the 0-100 km run in just 2.5 seconds and a top speed of 431.072 km/h (267.856 mph).
In 2019, residents of Lagos woke up to the arrival of the red Bugatti Veyron.

He has just wasted his money, he’s not gonna enjoy the real pack it was meant for, white rich people are more clever, if they buy a car they can’t drive in their country, they leave it there and only drive it when they visit Europe, and stay in their holiday apartment
