When Bugatti unveiled La Voiture Noire at the Geneva Motor Show, it was destined to make a lasting impression. The fact that it was immediately sold at the show remains a remarkable moment in automotive history.

The name “La Voiture Noire” translates to “the black car” in French. This unique masterpiece fetched a staggering $18.9 million, with $12.5 million going towards the car itself and an additional $6.4 million for local and luxury taxes. The buyer’s identity has been kept confidential by Bugatti, only revealing that the purchaser holds a significant connection to the brand.

In this sale, Bugatti outshined the Rolls Royce Sweptail, valued at $13 million, a custom creation from the ground up. However, several factors contribute to and potentially justify the high price tag.

La Voiture Noire offers the luxury of a limousine alongside the power of a hypercar. Described by Bugatti as a modern reimagining of the iconic Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, celebrating its 80th anniversary this year.

Only four of the original cars were produced by Jean Bugatti, son of Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti, with just three remaining today as the fourth disappeared around the time of the German invasion of France during World War II.

The exact location of the lost vehicle remains a mystery, with reports indicating that it is likely one of the two remaining 100% original models. This rarity places the Bugatti among the most prized and coveted cars globally.
