You can't import a Bugatti into Zambia without attracting a lot of attention, as a businessman found out the hard way this week.

This is the first time that such an expensive vehicle has been brought into Zambia, a Revenue Authority official said on condition of anonymity. The Bugatti with a dark side The Veyron Sang Noir is powered by the French carmaker’s 8-litre, 16-cylinder quad-turbo petrol engine, which produces a mammoth 746kW and 1250Nm. The top speed is listed at 407km/h and the car screeches from zero to 160km/h in just 5.7 seconds. According to Bugatti, the car was inspired by darkness: “For the EB 16.4 Veyron Sang Noir, Bugatti experimented with darker shades and tonalities. Vincent van Gogh once said: ‘It often seems to me that the night is much more alive and richly coloured than the day.’ The Veyron Sang Noir takes this thought to heart,” Bugatti said on its website. The iconic Type 57S Atlantic of the 1930s also provided inspiration for this special edition hypercar.
