Two years after taking home a prestigious Design Award at the Concorso d'Eleganza Villa d'Este, Bugatti has revealed the final production version of the La Voiture Noire one-off hypercar, which cost an anonymous celebrity client more than $13mm USD.
The car is 20 years in the making and inspired by the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic designed by Jean Bugatti, which has whereabouts unknown famously after disappearing ahead of World War II.
“We were rather in awe of the idea of developing the La Voiture Noire," says Achim Anscheidt, the Design Director at Bugatti. "No other vehicle in the long history of Bugatti has acquired the same legendary status as the Type 57 SC Atlantic and has become so synonymous with the brand."
The jaw-dropping creation features one-of-a-kind bodywork with a healthy amount of visible carbon fiber finished with a specially developed Black Carbon Glossy clear coat that limits reflections.
Its bespoke headlights, meanwhile, feature 25 individually milled lights per side, and everything from cooling to thermodynamics to its wheels and wheelbase has been customized specifically for the one-off.
As for the interior, it draws inspiration from the original car Jean Bugatti drove, opting for Havana Brown grain leather interior paired with rosewood detailing.
