A modern interpretation of the Bugatti 57 SC Atlantic has been teased for a while and now the new one-off model is here, the Bugatti “La Voiture Noire.” Bugatti President Stephan Winkelman says that the La Voiture Noire “is a coupé with the comfort of a luxury limousine and the power of a hyper sports car.”

Bugatti says that every single component found on the La Voiture Noire has been made by hand. Its exterior is made of carbon fiber, with a deep black gloss covering the entirety of it until it is interrupted by the ultrafine fiber structure.

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire’s engine is the well-known 8.0-liter W16 engine. Pumping out of this engine is 1480 horsepower and 1180 lb-ft of torque. There may be plenty of power to be found in the La Voiture Noire, but this one-off car is all about it’s beautiful styling.

“We worked long and hard on this design until was nothing that we could improve,” says
Bugatti designer Etienne Salomé. “For us, the coupé represents the perfect form with a perfect finish.

Bugatti says the La Voiture Noire’s price is €11 million, which equates to roughly $12.46 million. For those who were thinking they may be able to purchase it, I’ve got bad news for you as it’s already been sold to a Bugatti enthusiast. What’s more, that price tag makes it the most expensive new car of all time.
