Bugatti Reveals The Final Version Of The One-Off £11M La Voiture Noire

·1-min read

Bugatti has revealed the final version of the one-off La Voiture Noire after being in development for two years.

The £11 million all-black motor was purchased by a Bugatti enthusiast and is ready to be delivered to its lucky owner following extensive development work and testing. Over 65,000 engineering hours were invested into the project.

"With the completed La Voiture Noire, we are demonstrating once again that we develop the world's most sophisticated hyper sports cars," says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti.

With its use of visible carbon fibre in jet black, the coupe's breath-taking sculpture looks especially elegant. It's a veritable grand tourer that went from being a vision to a reality - a unique project which stands for Bugatti's full creativity and artistry.

Thought to be the most expensive new car ever, the La Voiture Noire is a homage to Jean Bugatti's Type 57 Atlantic, which mysteriously vanished from a train travelling between the company's Molsheim factory and Bordeaux in 1940.

Similar to the Bugatti Chiron, supercar fans can expect the "La Voiture Noire" to be powered by an 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder quad-turbo engine, set to produce 1,479hp with 1,180lb-ft of torque.

Aesthetically, the auto features a dynamically, sleek shell constructed in a bespoke carbon-fibre body that appears to be made of a single shell. Though it takes design cues from the Type 57SC Atlantic, "La Voiture Noire" also includes a rear fascia with six exhaust pipes, adding to the superlative price of the hypercar.
