The World's Most Expensive Items

LONDON -- An extremely rare 1937 Bugatti has been found in a garage in England and is expected to draw a record price when it is auctioned in Paris next month.
The dusty but intact Bugatti Type 57S Atalante is one of only 17 ever made. It had a top speed of 130 mph (209 kph) at a time when most cars could only go half as fast.
The powerful two-seater car from the heyday of the celebrated Bugatti marquee is expected to be sold for more than 3 million pounds ($4.3 million).

A day after New York City came up with a $1,000 bagel, a local restaurateur unveiled a $25,000 chocolate sundae on Wednesday, setting a Guinness world record for the most expensive dessert.
Stephen Bruce, owner of Serendipity 3, partnered with luxury jeweler Euphoria New York to create the "Frozen Haute Chocolate," a blend of 28 cocoas, including 14 of the most expensive and exotic from around the globe.

The dessert, spelled with two Rs, is infused with 5 grams (0.2 ounces) of edible 23-karat gold and served in a goblet lined with edible gold. At the base of the goblet is an 18-karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of white diamonds.

The sundae is topped with whipped cream covered with more gold and a side of La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier, which sells for $2,600 a pound.

**The world’s most expensive motorhome – the eleMMent palazzo – has gone up for sale for a whopping $2.6 million. The 40ft long palace on wheels designed by Marchi Mobile features an ensuite master bedroom, pop-up roof terrace, underfloor heating and a bar. The luxurious vehicle has also an en suite bathroom, rainfall shower, separate toilet, lounge and driver’s cab complete with bunk bed.
