Boston Corporate Coach™ is excited to share the above image of the world’s most expensive car, The Bugarri La Voitre Noire. It was unveiled earlier this month at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance, the industry’s most prestigious show. That’s where serious car collectors go to see the world’s rarest automobiles and the location chosen for the US debut of this amazing car.
The event is a tradition that goes back over half a century. This year, only the 200 best collector cars in the world rolled onto the legendary 18th fairway of Pebble Beach Golf Links for the prestigious car show. And, just a handful of those received official recognition for style, technical merit, and historical accuracy.
Unveiled earlier at this year’s Geneva Motor Show and shown at Concorso d’Eleganza Villa d’Este in Italy last May, the sleek GT had already been purchased for $12.5 million (prior to taxes, bringing its total to about $18.7 million). The sale, to an anonymous buyer, set a record for a new car.
The one-off La Voiture Noire, which translates to The Black Car, was designed as a tribute to the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic from the 1930s, one of auto history’s most iconic vehicles. The Batmobile-esque hypercar packs a mighty punch due to a stunning 8-liter, quad-turbo W-16 engine capable of producing 1,500 hp and 1,180 lb.-foot of torque. That kind of punch means the La Voiture Noire can go 0 to 60 in 2.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 261 mph. Hard as it may be to imagine, Bugatti reportedly limited the car’s speed to give it more touring refinement.
