Seems like the French marque will deliver its promise.
When Bugatti introduced the La Voiture Noire back in March 2019, the French automaker didn’t show the cabin and that’s because that car wasn’t real; it’s merely a show car to showcase the most expensive new car ever sold. Bugatti said that it needs two and a half years to finish and deliver the one-off model.
It seems like Bugatti will be able to keep its promise as what seems like a production version of the La Voiture Noire has been spotted, courtesy of the Bugatti car spotter JCT Car Photography on Instagram.
The photos were taken in the afternoon of April 21, near the automaker’s factory in Molsheim, France. The one-off supercar was seen driving around on a public road, most likely testing before delivery to its wealthy owner.
For the uninitiated, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire was regarded modern interpretation of Jean Bugatti’s personal Type 57 SC Atlantic that got lost during World War II. It has a price tag of €11 million (about $12.45M at current exchange rates) before taxes, but Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann said the car was sold for €16.5M ($18.68M) during its introduction in 2019. Yes, taxes included. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
