2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a one-off supercar based on the Chiron. Unveiled at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it joins the Divo as a derivative from the already famous Chiron hypercar. The La Voiture Noire is a modern reinterpretation of the Type 57 SC Atlantic from the 1930s and was built to celebrate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary. Only one was made and sold for more than $12 million before taxes.
Unlike the Divo, a car that’s going to be built in 40 units, the La Voiture Noire will remain unique. This vehicle was created specifically for a Bugatti enthusiast that’s "fascinated by the Atlantic," a coupe that the French firm built in the 1930s. Despite the unique bodywork and detailing, the La Voiture Noir remains a standard Chiron under the hood, so performance is similar to the vehicle it is based on.
2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire - Quirks and Facts
Designed by the team headed by Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti’s Director of Design, the 2019 Bugatti La Voiture Noire represents the ultimate execution in coach building. The hand-made grand touring hypercar is the contemporary reimagination of what the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic La Voiture Noire was in the Thirties. With a monumental responsibility to live up to the status of the most valuable classic car on Earth - the ghostly figure of the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic that belonged to Jean Bugatti - the new 2019 La Voiture Noire employs numerous unique peculiarities. I will tell you all about the most refreshing, strangest, and most incredible facts of the new Bugatti La Voiture Noire.
How Can Bugatti Get Off Charging $18.9 Million for the 2019 La Voiture Noire
Revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show behind what seemed to be a rebarbative barrier and not a customary glass fence, the very black Bugatti La Voiture Noire become the most expensive car on earth. Its price is $18.9 million. The La Voiture Noire, a car that is a sort of a Buggati hommage to the stunning and super-rare Type 57 Atlantic, does look striking and almost otherworldly, but I am still pressed to justify its incredible value. In this article, I will explore how Bugatti can get off charging $18.9 million for the 2019 La Voiture Noire, an automobile more exclusive than the Bugatti Divo, and far more precious than the Bugatti Chiron. It is, still, directly linked to both of them.
Unique Bugatti La Voiture Noire Pays Tribute to the iconic Atlantic in Geneva
Bugatti just unveiled a brand-new supercar based on the Chiron at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. It’s called La Voiture Noire, it pays tribute to the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic of the 1930s, and just like the Divo it has a bespoke exterior. Only one was built and sold for a whopping €11 million before taxes.
The $18-Million, One-Off Hypercar That Bugatti is Bringing to Geneva Could Be a Modern-Day Take on the Iconic 57 SC Atlantic
Bugatti’s stand at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show is shaping up to be the go-to stand at the event now that the French automaker has let the cat out of the bag. A modern-day take on the iconic Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic is coming to Geneva, and if rumors are true, this could be the $18-million, one-off model that former Volkswagen Group chief Ferdinand Piëch commissioned Bugatti to build for him. No confirmation has been made on that front, but a 57 SC Atlantic-inspired Bugatti is bound for Geneva. That much has been confirmed by no less than the French automaker through a teaser image in its Facebook page with the description, “Jean Bugatti’s 57 SC Atlantic cannot be re-created, but what do you think? Can we translate its design language into the 21st century?” If it wasn’t clear before, it’s crystal clear now. All eyes will be on Bugatti at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
This Rendering Shows the True Potential of What Bugatti Could do with the Divo
Bugatti’s bonkers track weapon, the Divo, is the Chiron’s mad brother that’s been conceived to break lap records. Sadly, Bugatti won’t chop the roof off the Divo but, if it did, you’d end up with something close to Rain Prisk’s render, a machine that’s bent on ruining your hair.
We know Bugatti builds some of the most amazing cars the world has ever seen. Since it was brought back to life under Volkswagen ownership, the company founded by Ettore Bugatti managed to put out two awe-inspiring cars: the Veyron and the Chiron. In 2018, Bugatti launched the Divo, a hypercar "built for corners" based on the Chiron but with a very different look to it. It will probably not be the last special edition spawned by the Chiron but, thus far, it’s the most ludicrous the French manufacturer put out.
Details Of the Full-Scale LEGO Bugatti Chiron Are Incredible
Just when you thought you knew everything about the life-sized, brick-version Bugatti Chiron that LEGO created last year, this detailed look at the incredible creation opens up details that we didn’t know about the replica. The credit belongs to the folks over at The Straight Pipes, who managed to get an in-depth look at the LEGO Chiron when it was on display at the 2019 Canadian International Auto Show. We know that this replica was created with over one million bricks. That’s old news. What we didn’t know is that most of the LEGO Chiron’s body is comprised of flexible sheets made of bricks that are shaped like triangles. That’s one of the many details you’ll learn from this 10-minute deep dive into what is arguably the sickest-looking full-scale model that LEGO has ever created.
2019 Bugatti Chiron Sport ‘110 Ans’ Edition
Bugatti is celebrating its 110th anniversary this year, and in keeping with its reputation for celebrating anniversaries in style, it’s bringing a special edition Chiron to the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The special edition model, called the Chiron Sport “110 Ans,” is essentially a love letter for Bugatti, from Bugatti. It’s limited to just 20 units, and it’s dressed up in the finest exclusive touches you can find in the business. The special edition ode to Bugatti’s heritage will be the centerpiece of Bugatti’s exhibit in Geneva, though it may or may not be joined by a mysterious one-off hypercar that Bugatti is also rumored to have a spot for in its booth in Geneva. But that’s a different story. This is all about the Bugatti Chiron Sport 110 Ans Edition, a fitting celebratory piece to Bugatti’s long and storied history in the business.
Bugatti Could Redefine The Pricing of One-Off Builds at The Geneva Motor Show
Bugatti is no stranger to shaking up the industry when there’s an opportunity to do so. That “opportunity” could come sooner than we think because of rumors that the super luxury performance brand is developing a one-off creation for the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. The whispered price of this one-off? $18 million. Details are still scarce at the point, but it is rumored that this one-off Bugatti has already been built. More importantly, it was built for Dr. Ferdinand Piëch, the former chairman of the Volkswagen Group, and is being launched as part of the automaker’s 110th-anniversary celebration.
Amazing Bugatti collection discovered in poverty-stricken family’s barn
Having one rare pre-war Bugatti in your barn should be reason enough for anybody not to have to endure a life of hardship since these cars can fetch millions at auction. It’s, therefore, a bit of a mystery why a man from Belgium who had three of them (yes, that’s right, three) kept them despite by all accounts living under the poverty line for many years.
If 3D-Printed Car Parts Scare You, Check Out What Bugatti Does to Test 3D-Printed Brake Calipers!
Additive manufacturing, known more popularly as 3D printing, is a novel manufacturing technique that’s captured the imagination of the car industry, promising a long list of benefits for both automakers and consumers. But of course, as is the case for any new technology, there are always questions over safety - but rest assured, Bugatti is rigorous when it comes to testing, as evidenced in this four-and-a-half minute video.
Bah, Humbug: Bugatti’s Gone Cold on Doing a Top Speed Run for The Chiron
The world has been waiting two years for the Bugatti Chiron to post a top speed run. We’ve been teased about it before, but now it looks all that teasing will be for naught. Bugatti has now closed the door on a top speed run for the Chiron. Word of the company’s decision on the issue comes straight from the mouth of CEO Stephen Winkelmann, who said that a top speed run isn’t in any of Bugatti’s priorities at the moment. Whether that position holds true or changes remains to be seen, but if you’re looking for a threat to the Koenigsegg Agera RS’ world record top speed of 277.8 mph, that conversation, at least for now, starts and ends with the Hennessey Venom F5. Bugatti’s not joining that party, much to the dismay of everyone.
