The new Bugatti has become the most expensive new car on the planet. The Bugatti La Voiture Noire was unveiled during the annual Geneva Motor Show, which is currently in full gear. It has been priced at €11 million (about R176 million), but was sold to a Bugatti enthusiast for €16 million (about R256 million).
During its presentation, the company confirmed that only one of these Bugatti La Voiture Noire cars has been manufactured and has now been sold to a Bugatti enthusiast.
Bugatti President, Stephan Winkelmann, describes the new car:
It is a sculptural beauty with unique technology, the ideal Grand Tourisme. This is a coupé with the comfort of a luxury limousine and the power of a hyper sports car.
With “La Voiture Noire”, we are paying homage to our heritage and bringing speed, technology, luxury, and aesthetics forward to a new era.
This new car was designed after Jean Bugatti’s most famous car, “la Voiture Noire“ a Type 57 SC Atlantic. Jean Bugatti’s initial creation has become one of the most valuable classic cars around, with only four of these ever made, and only three known to still exist.
Bugatti designer, Etienne Salomé, explained that
Every single component has been handcrafted and the carbon fibre body has a deep black gloss only interrupted by the ultrafine fibre structure. This is a material that has been handled perfectly.
The new car from Bugatti has an 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine, which produces 1 103 kW and 1 600 Newton-metres of torque.
This huge price tag on the new car from Bugatti is quite significant when compared to one of the company’s other highly pricey cars, the 2017 Bugatti Chiron.
The company declined to give a look at the interior of the car during its presentation at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. But you can get a closer look at the exterior of this beautiful, one-of-a-kind, new car from Bugatti below.
