  • The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is the most expensive new car in the world,there is only one of them and it has already sold

And with a price tag of $12.5 million or ₹ 87 crore (ex-showroom), it is the world's most expensive new vehicle to be sold ever.

It was publicly debuted at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland. The one-off La Voiture Noire celebrates Bugatti's 110th anniversary as an established automotive brand.

It has a hand-built carbon fibre body and the same bonkers quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16 engine as the Chiron and Divo, rated at about 1,500 horsepower. The buyer, according to some published reports, is Dr. Ferdinand Piëch, grandson of Ferdinand Porsche and ex-chairman of the Volkswagen Group. Some folks were expecting some sort of wild Atlantic recreation, but it's clear that Bugatti stayed rooted in modern design for La Voiture Noire.

New vertically stacked headlamps provide a fresh take on the Bugatti face, while the side profile has a strong wedge with a fighter canopy effect windowline not dissimilar to the glasshouse on a Nissan GT-R.

The Geneva Motor Show is always good for a jaw-dropping moment, and this year's belonged to French marque Bugatti. With its extended front end and the distinctive Bugatti C-line, the "Voiture Noire" creates an elongated impression with the elegant waistline defining the contours of the coupé.

"Bugatti has again proved that it makes the world's most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive hyper sports cars", said Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann.

That was a model designed by Jean Bugatti, son of company founder Ettore, only four of which were ever built. "It is a feast of aesthetics". Design highlights include bumper integrated into the body, windscreen seamlessly flowing into windows, which is infact inspired by helmet visor. Hopefully, but we wouldn't get our hopes up too high given the value of the auto which will only go up in time.
