It’s the €11 million Bugatti supercar that no-one can buy. La Voiture Noire, a one-off thought to be the most expensive car in the world, was snapped up by a mystery enthusiast. “We have a lot of customers that are interested in buying a one-off and we create ideas and then we go directly and present to them,” Stephan Winkelmann, president of the famous French carmaker, told Euronews at the Geneva Motor Show this week. The car is a nod to the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, a 1930s model of which only four were ever produced. Specifically, it commemorates one of them that has been missing since disappearing towards the end of the decade. "The world has been searching for this Atlantic for more than 80 years, it is one of the great mysteries in the history of the automobile,” said Bugatti in a statement. “The car probably disappeared before the German invasion of Alsace, when it was to be dispatched to a safe region.” … [Read more...] about La Voiture Noire: the €11m Bugatti supercar that no-one can buy

Bugatti unveiled a one-of-a-kind hypercar called La Voiture Noire at the Geneva Motor Show on Tuesday. The custom-built hypercar was created to commemorate Bugatti’s 110th birthday. At $US18.9 million, it’s the most expensive new car ever sold, Bugatti said. La Voiture Noire is powered by a 1,480-horsepower, 8.0-litre, quad-turbocharged W16 engine. Following is a transcript of the video. This is Bugatti’s new eighteen-million dollar supercar, it’s the most expensive new car of all time. The bad news is that even if you had 18 million dollars just lying around you are out of luck as they have only made one, and it’s already been sold. The car has many of the same internals as the Bugatti Chiron and Divo. Including the massive 8 litre quad-turbocharged 16 cylinder engine with almost 1500 horsepower.

By Hamza Shaban The Washington Post Tues., March 5, 2019 To mark its 110th anniversary, the French automaker Bugatti celebrated in singular style, unveiling the most expensive new car in the world — La Voiture Noire, or the black car — in Geneva. In case interested buyers have €12.7 million (roughly $19 million (Cdn.)) lying around, Bugatti already sold its one-of-a-kind creation. The luxury brand said that the jet black sports car with an 8-litre, 16-cylinder engine, 1,500 horsepower and six exhaust pipes was handcrafted for a car collector who probably identifies with the motto of company founder, Ettore Bugatti: “If it is comparable, it is no longer Bugatti.” Nor will it be cheap to run. Bugatti’s website gives the fuel economy as 35.2 litre per 100 km in the city and 15.2 L/100 km highway. At its debut Tuesday during the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, Bugatti chief executive Stephan Winkelmann said the … [Read more...] about Bugatti unveils most expensive new car in the world
