Each component of this incredible car has been crafted by hand. The carbon fiber body has a deep black gloss, interrupted only by the ultrafine fiber structure.

But "La Voiture Noire" is far more than a modern interpretation of the ghost of the Gran Turismo. "La Voiture Noire" is a tribute to Bugatti’s own history, a manifesto of the Bugatti aesthetic, and a piece of automotive haute couture.
In 2019, the Bugatti "La Voiture Noire" sold for $18.7 million.
