The 2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire is now known as the most expensive car in the world, as it costs €11 million (without tax).
The first of its kind car made its appearance in the 2019 Geneva Car show earlier this month. According to the CEO of Bugatti, Stephan Winkelmann, the production of this world most expensive car, Bugatti, ‘is to pay homage to their heritage and bringing speed, technology, luxury and aesthetics forward to a new era;’ thus, it's a tribute to Bugatti's heritage.

The Bugatti La Voiture, which is built to celebrate Bugatti's 110th anniversary and to pay homage also to the type 57SC Atlantic which was made in the 1930s, has similar features to the Bugatti Chiron. It has a hand-made carbon fiber body same to Bugatti Chiron, which is among the world’s fastest and most exclusive luxury sports cars.
The 2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire is described as technical masterpiece
The powerhouse of this dark expression of beauty is a 16-cylinder engine, which is unique in the automotive world. And as described by Stephen: ‘not only an engine but the heart of the vehicle and a technical masterpiece.’ This is spectacular because no other car in the world has such an engine.
Though, Bugatti did not release much information on this car, we know that for a total price of €16.5 million (tax added), Bugatti La Voiture’s W16-cylinder engine is embedded with a displacement of about 8 liters which develops 1,479 horsepower (1,103 kW) and 1180 @ 6000 Newton-metres of torque.
The Bugatti La Voiture is gaining so much attention as it is the only ‘la voiture’ that will be produced. For all those who love this car and would like to own it, it's unfortunate to say that this automobile has been purchased by an unnamed ‘Bugatti enthusiast’ as described by its company CEO Stephen Winkelmann.
The lucky "unknown" owner must wait 2 and a half years to see the car
When contacted, Bugatti’s Head of Communications in France, Tim Bravo confirmed that the purchased car has not been delivered yet to the new owner as the company needs two more years to finish the prototype. The customer agreed to the project timeline. What was displayed at the Geneva car show was just a prototype of what the car will look like when completed.
