The car company Bugatti has recently rolled out what will likely be one of the most expensive cars in the world, but right now it is only seen rarely, at expensive car shows, or the streets of Italy during the Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este.
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a one of a kind vehicle that is priced around £14 million. The car is considered to be the “spiritual successor” to Jean Bugatti’s personal Type 57 SC Atlantic that was reportedly lost during World War II.
The La Voiture Noire was first shown off during the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. More recently, the La Voiture Noire made an appearance at an automotive event organized by the BMW Group called Competition of Elegance in Villa d’Este.
It is important to mention that the La Voiture Noire shown in the video is the electric prototype that debuted at the Geneva Motor Show, which is why you will notice that you can’t hear an engine.
Bugatti said that it will need roughly two to two and a half years to complete the final version of the La Voiture Noire. There are rumors that the vehicle already has an owner, but it is not entirely clear who the lucky person is. Some reports have indicated that football star Cristiano Ronaldo was the owner of the car, but these claims were denied by Ronaldo’s PR team.
