Bugatti has just taken the covers off the La Voiture Noire (French for ‘The Black Car’), an uber-exclusive homage to the 1937 Type 57 Atlantic sports car.

The ‘La Voiture Noire’ (I’ll just refer to it as the Noire from here on) is a one-off special, that has been sold to a collector for a cool €16.7 million Euros. In case you’re wondering, that does include taxes – the car cost €11M before the mandatory expenses were applied.

So what do you get for your $26.5M Aussie dollars? Firstly, there’s a completely new look designed solely for the Noire – there are aggressive front and rear bumpers, sleek lines, full LED lights with architectural designs, five-section large alloy wheels, ‘BUGATTI’ branding along the rear, and six exhaust tips. It’s hard to explain how it looks with words – take a look at the photos and make your own mind up.

Underneath its gorgeous skin is the same underpinnings and powertrain as the Chiron, Chiron Sport and Divo hypercars. Behind the passengers is an 8.0-litre quad-turbocharged W16 engine, which produces 1103kW of power and 1600Nm of torque. Drive is sent to all four wheels through a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox – performance figures likely mirror the Chiron, which boasts a 2.4 second 0-100km/h time and a 420km/h limited top speed.

The sole example of the Bugatti La Voiture Noire was sold to what the compant claims was a ‘Bugatti enthusiast’. Don’t ever expect to see this beast in person, let alone on the road.
