In celebration of its legendary grand tourers, its 110-year anniversary, and reputation for excess, Bugatti built the one-off La Voiture Noire, a $18.9 million, 1,500-hp super coupe. Based closely on the Chiron, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is essentially a coach-built supercar for the one percent.
(7) Comes From a Long Line of Gorgeousness
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire pays homage to the brand’s design prowess. In this case, the La Voiture Noire harkens back to the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, which had a unique presence and a slick black exterior.
(6) An Iconic Bugatti Central Spine
A one-off super coupe that happens to be the world’s most expensive car also needs some prominent design details to make it unique. Just like the Type 57 SC Atlantic, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire has an exposed backbone as one of its signature design details.
(5) A Special Snout
Like the Bugatti Divo, the La Voiture Noire has its own unique front fascia that distinguishes it from your average Chiron. Although it retains the insect-like light pattern, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire has its own headlight design, which helps it stand out even more.
(4) Powered by the Ultimate Engine
Bugatti’s 1,500-hp quad-turbo, 16-cylinder engine powers the La Voiture Noire. Although it’s unchanged from the Chiron, not many can boast that their vehicle has that much power and is one of the most expensive new cars today.
(3) More Pipes Than Notre Dame
Bugatti vehicles are known for their over-the-top design so it’s no surprise that the La Voiture Noire has so many crazy design cues. That includes the rear fascia with six exhaust pipes, which means you can let people know that the most expensive new car is also among those with the most tailpipes protruding from its rear.
(2) Superlative Price
The individual that bought the sole example of the Bugatti La Voiture Noire paid a cool $18.9 million when all was said and done, making it the priciest new car bought to date.
(1) “Single-Piece” Body
In a move to demonstrate top-notch craftsmanship on the world’s most expensive new car, Bugatti created a “single-piece” body. That means the automaker made sure to eliminate any appearance of seams from the La Voiture Noire’s body so that it appears to be made of a single shell.
Between the over-the-top exterior and the insanely powerful engine, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire’s level of excess explains why it’s the most expensive new car you can buy. Since it’s a one-off, though, it’s officially sold out and it will likely only get more expensive as years pass.
