The new Bugatti La Voiture Noire is based on the iconic Type 57 Atlantic of the 1930s, which in turn was based on the manufacturer's versatile Type 57 platform. "It is a feast of aesthetics", he added. In the case of this two-seater, anyway, let's start with the quad-turbo W-16 engine delivering about 1,479 horsepower. At the front, the horseshoe grille is more pronounced than ever before and above it the sleek LED headlights extend on top of the wheel arches. Because Bugatti made just one vehicle, and it's already sold to an unidentified buyer (who is that?!) The next one will be made after the French sports auto brand has figured out how to replicate the precious thing.

It is not news that Bugatti makes very expensive automobiles. So, despite the thing basically being a skin for the Chiron, most likely with the same being true for the interior, the auto greeting us on the Swiss event's floor is far from the finished thing. We have just succeeded in doing so with La Voiture Noire'.

"Our history is both a privilege and a responsibility - the responsibility for continuing the Bugatti heritage into the future", says Bugatti boss Stephan Winkelmann. It also has six, count 'em, six tailpipes, just like the 57, and the dorsal fin that splits the rear "window".

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. Twenty have been manufactured, and they've all sold for a net price of €3 million ($3.4 million).

The body of the Voiture Noire is made of carbon fibre and like every other Bugatti, it has been entirely constructed by hand. It is built to pay tribute to France and in celebration of Bugatti's 110th Anniversary. Bugatti is not reviving the Atlantic, but it did lean on that design to create a wild one-off.

"This will be an exciting and thrilling year for us".
