«La Voiture Noire» is sold for $19 million which is the highest ever paid for a new car

«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.

Porsche will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its first sports car in June 8, 2018

Porsche is a nice and sporty car and the brand will celebrate the 70th anniversary of its first sports car in 2018. From June 8 – 10, 2018, it`s finally time; Porsche is celebrating its 70th birthday with its first international Sportscar Together Day.

The day will be celebrated with a number of Porsche events around the globe and with sports car drivers, enthusiasts and fans worldwide. Those who are interested can follow the shows and activities at first hand via live stream on Facebook.

Porsche AG is a German automobile manufacturer specializing in high-performance sports cars, SUV`s and sedans. Porsche AG is headquartered in Stuttgart and the brand is owned by Volkswagen AG, which is itself majority-owned by Porsche automobile Holding SE.

I really like Tesla because of its battery capacity and it seems like European automotive has been sleeping when it comes to electric vehicles. They cant fully compete with Teslas capasity right now, so in the meantime they are launching hybrids.

Just look at Teslas Model X and compare it with Porsches Cayenne. Teslas sales and production goes straight up while Cayennes production and sales is declining. Cayenne sales dropped sharply in 2014.

82,000 were produced in 2013 while the number last year dropped to 59,000.

Porsches Panamera sale was up 73% to over 19,000 vehicles. Since April last year, Porsches stock chart has gone straight up.

European automotive has no choice. They must come up with a better battery solution. Hybrid is not the solution in the long run and Tesla will still be a leader with its solution. Nor is a new emission-cheating scandal the future.

A senior executive at Porsche was taken into custody by German police in a raid related to Volkswagen`s emissions scandal, but Porsche denies any wrongdoing at the company in relation to the emissions cheating allegations.

If Porsche will challenge Tesla it must be with their new crossover concept variant called the Mission E Cross Turismo. A concept revealed at the Geneva Motor Show, but it is just a concept model while Tesla`s Model X are already being made.

The Cross Turismo has a range in excess of 310 miles per charge and has been tested out at a 0-60 mph time of less than 3,5 seconds. Porsche said the new vehicle can be charged at a rate of 250 miles driving range per 15 minutes.

Porsches1Q Europe sales rose 8% to 20,601. Their Q1 China sales is up 3% to 18,672. Q1 sales in the U.S rose 10% to 16,698. All in all, the sale is up 6%. Porsches growth is driven by German, U.S and the European market.

Porsche`s Panamera and 911 saw most successful Q1 in company history.
