Presented at the last Geneva Vehicle Exhibition, Bugatti La Voiture Noire is on display today in its final form, after more than two years of operation.
If the car you see in the picture above tells you something, do not worry, it is quite normal. And for good reason it is Bugatti La Voiture Noire, a very special edition of Chiron, which was already unveiled to the public over the past two years, at the Geneva Motor Show. To the great surprise of this edition, when there was no sign of such a revelation, the main car was presented with great joy at the brand stand. Giving respect to the story Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, this unique style had shocked the public and journalists, disappointed with what appears to be nothing more than a new body of Molsheim’s main car. But what a thing, for one reason that at that time it was the most expensive new car in the world still had a lot of people talking about it, and this for a very simple reason: the secret that surrounds the identity of its owner. When corridor rumors first talked about Ferdinand Piech then Cristiano Ronaldo, the question will eventually remain unanswered.

This one is actually wearing upholstery inside full grain skin Havana-brown color, inspired by the original model.

As a reminder, 0 to 100 km / h is then sent for 2.4 seconds, while the top speed is limited to 420 km / h.
