French luxury automobile brand, Bugatti, has just unveiled the world’s most expensive car of all time. It is called La Voiture Noire.
The super hyper sports car is valued at a whooping €11 Million. And according to information contained on Bugatti’s official website, the car has already been sold.
“At the Geneva Motor Show, the French luxury brand is showing the hyper sports car “La Voiture Noire1“ and the Chiron Sport “110 ans Bugatti”. The special edition of the Chiron Sport , which is being produced in a limited series of 20 cars, celebrates the brand’s 110th anniversary as well as its French identity. However, the highlight will be the unveiling of “La Voiture Noire”, which had been kept secret up to the beginning of the show. This is a homage to the legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic. This one-off grand tourisme has already been sold and is the world’s most expensive new car, at €11 million.”
Meanwhile, the BBC reported that Mr Ferdinand Piech, grandson of Porsche’s founder, is thought to be the buyer. Mr Piech is a former chief executive of Volkswagen, which owns Bugatti. He had a reputation for acquiring some of the group’s most expensive development projects during his tenure.
