Bugatti Sells Most Expensive Car Ever Built for $19 Million

The one-off supercar, unveiled today at the Geneva Motor Show, is intended as a modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti's famous Type 57 SC Atlantic. Those aesthetics won't be to all tastes, of course, but from where we're sitting, it's hard to disagree with Mr Winkelmann.

Even though it has more tailpipes than the regular Chiron, the powertrain appears to be the same.

Bugatti marked its 110th anniversary with the La Voiture Noire - a sleek jet-black rocket that's more Bruce Wayne's Sunday runaround than his alter-ego's attack-mode Batmobile.

Whenever there is any news or update about Bugatti, it has to be special as the French automobile manufacturer is known to churn distinct high-performance machines. There is no other auto in the world with such an engine.

And, according to The Verge, it will take another 30 months for the La Voiture Noire to be completed, so we'll only get to listen to its 1,500 horsepower roar in 2022. We have just succeeded in doing so with La Voiture Noire'.

A McLaren P1 style rear light bar illuminated the rear, shedding light in the six central exhaust pipes, another of the 57SC Atlantic's design quirks.

In addition to all the benefits of a Chiron Sport, it not only includes the "Sky View" option as standard equipment, but also several product features only offered for this model. Just 20 have reportedly been manufactured, and they've each sold for €3 million ($3.4 million). From the specs, it is likely to be the same engine used in the Chiron. The bumpers are smoothly integrated into the body and the windscreen seems to flow seamlessly into the windows at the sides like the visor on a helmet. "France is Bugatti's home country". The one-off vehicle has already been sold, the Franco-German marque said. This also includes a grand tour of places where company founder Ettore Bugatti was active.
