Bugatti is the top trending topic on Twitter in Zambia with people talking and sharing pictures of the luxury car that was imported into the country on Monday.
Reports say it is the first ever of its brand in the country.
The owner of the rare Bugatti, a Veyron, is not known, although industry experts estimate that it costs between $2m-$3m (£1.5m-£2.3m).
Soon after the car landed at Lusaka’s Kenneth Kaunda International Airport on Monday on a commercial plane, its pictures were shared on Twitter.
Tax authorities could not disclose the car owner to the BBC. They, however, did reveal the owner had paid all the taxes relating to its clearance but did not give further details when asked its value and total taxes.
“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.
