Somebody has just bought Bugatti’s new “hypercar.”
Bugatti, the French sports car brand which is now owned by German automaker Volkswagen, has unveiled the most expensive new car ever built.
With a sale cost of 16.7 million euros ($19 million), the Bugatti La Voiture Noire made public debut on Tuesday at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland.
Only one example of the model has been constructed and was developed to commemorate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary.
The company stated the six-tailpipe “hypercar” represents the highest point of Bugatti’s production line. The 8-liter engine comes with 16 cylinders and 1500 brake horse power.
The details about the new owner are nil but several industry reports state that former Volkswagen Group chairman Ferdinand Piech has added it to his collection of luxury cars.
Bugatti states the vehicle is “more than a modern interpretation” of Jean Bugatti’s Type 57 SC Atlantic, of which only four were ever constructed.
