Today is the media day at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show. We’ll be adding our highlights from the day’s launches to this post as they happen, so please check back from time to time.

Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Bugatti La Voiture Noire

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire is a one-off model that celebrates Bugatti’s long tradition of coach built cars and is an homage to the famous Bugatti’s Type 57 SC Atlantic. The one-off car cost an eye-watering 11 million Euros (before taxes) and was created for one (incredibly) wealthy buyer. We can gues that the special model is based on the Chiron hypercar as it features a 16-cylinder engine with a displacement of 8,0-litres that develops 1 103 kW/1 600 N.m of torque.
