The press service of the French automaker has published a teaser for the final version of the Bugatti La Voiture Noire hypercar. The unique hypercar with six tailpipes looks set to debut.
A couple of days after the official presentation of the French La Voiture Noire took place in Geneva two years ago, Bugatti representatives admitted that at the moment it is a “rather crude” prototype, which has only an electric motor and a battery. As part of his interview, the head of the automaker’s communications department said that it would take two and a half years to make a serial production of the shown concept.
On April 22 this year, a prototype was spotted outside the Bugatti plant in Molsheim, Germany, likely undergoing final testing before being shipped to a legitimate (and extremely patient) owner.
Apparently, the world premiere of “Black Car” will take place at the end of the month. In a series of cryptic teasers posted on Instagram, a unique W16 hypercar depicted on a digital postcard is shown. Separately, it is worth noting the message: “See you on May 31, 2021.”
A tribute to Jean Bugatti’s personal Type 57 SC Atlantic, lost in World War II, La Voiture Noire is based on the Chiron hypercar and features an all-carbon body. Design director Achim Anscheidt told reporters at the 2019 Geneva show that Bugatti has been pondering the idea of reviving the iconic Atlantic since the late 2000s.
As far as we know, this is the most expensive new car ever, with a price tag of 11 million euros excluding taxes. The identity of the owner of La Voiture Noire remains a mystery more than three years after the world debut of this car. Early reports suggested that this mysterious man could have been Cristiano Ronaldo, but this information turned out to be a lie.
Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the tuners manually made a pink Bugatti Chiron out of clay. Tuners from NHET on YouTube have completed work on one of their boldest creations: the Bugatti Chiron. This car is completely made of clay.
