«La Voiture Noire» or «The Black Car» is the latest French automobile sold on the Geneva Motor Show earlier this week. $19 million is a high price for a vehicle but it depends on the buyers glasses. Is it «just» a vehicle or is it art?
Bugatti has always been defined by the spirit of its founder, Ettore Bugatti. He started the incomparable journey of the Bugatti brand in 1909 in Molsheim. Bugatti has a long history full of passion, craftsmanship, dynamics and elegance.
Alsace is their home, and they can proudly claim to be the only French Luxury automotive brand. Anniversary celebrations are not only a celebration of past achievements. They also mark the beginning of a new chapter.
Audes Group is proud to be a part of the next chapter in the Bugatti history book, becoming the hyper sports car manufacturer`s licensing partner for the next three years. «La Voiture Noire» is a one-off car for the anniversary.
Every single component has been handcrafted and the carbon fibre body has a deep black gloss only interrupted by the ultra fine fibre structure. The heart of the new creation is the iconic 16-cylinder engine. Unique in the automotive world and the peak of the engineer`s art.
There is no other car in the world with such an engine. It is not only extremely powerful but also beautiful to look at. The 16-cylinder engine with a displacement of 8 litres develops 1,103 kW/1,500 PS and 1,600 Newton-metres of torque.
The engine in powered by the same 1103kW 16-cylinder quad turbocharger engine from the Bugatti Chiron, enough to propel the vehicle to more than 400km/h. Despite the lightweight thinking, it`s claimed an average of 22,5 litres per 100km, which is about twice as much as a V8.
Six tailpipes at the rear bear witness to its incredible power and are also a tribute to the 16 cylinders.
This car is sold to a Bugatti enthusiast and it is the most expensive new car of all time. «La Voiture Noire» is an unprecedented and unique car that continues a long tradition in the history of the automobile.
