Is Drake's Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir for sale?
The Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is a limited edition car that harks back to the Atlantique 57S. One is for sale in Canada where rapper Drake is known to have his. Is this Drake's car?
A car that’s up for sale with previous celebrity owner status usually attracts plenty of attention, but sometimes said attention isn’t wanted, with a preference to sell under the radar. However, some cars are so high profile that shifting them outside of the spotlight is near impossible. We’re pretty sure that this rare Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir up for sale once belonged to hip-hop and R&B artist Drake.

Placing our deerstalker Sherlock Holmes hat on our heads, we know that there were only 15 Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir produced by the factory in Molsheim, France. Just one of those 15, that we know of, resided in Canada - a nation home to Drake himself. Still unconvinced? Check out this rather comical video of Drake being unable to get his Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir started with fellow rapper Nicki Minaj in the passenger seat. Today a Ferrari dealer in Québec, Canada is selling a very rare 2008 example of the Veyron. Is it Drake’s old car? It doesn’t explicitly say, but considering its rarity and location, it doesn't take much to connect the dots.
The Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is an homage to the Bugatti Atlantique 57S with its deep black paint finish and orange leather interior. A bespoke grille, distinctive alloy wheels, and black carbon bodywork set it apart from the standard car. It retained the 987bhp quad-turbo W16 engine that enables a top speed of 253mph.
The Sang Noir in question is currently for sale with Ferrari Québec and is a prime target for a collector, however, its ad features some slightly confusing details. The mileage is either 1236 miles or 1236km, and it also suggests that there were 12 Sang Noir Coupes, when there were in fact 15. One thing we can be sure of is that if you want it in your garage you’ll need CAD $1,299,900.
Odds are this car once belonged to Drake, but even if it didn't, what a machine!
