The new Bugatti, made from carbon and other exclusive materials, only one copy is made, which also costs $18.9 million. Although the car is only fully ready in 2021, it has already been sold, writes The Verge. This makes it the most expensive car ever.
It was briefly blinking at the car and motor show in Geneva when Bugatti introduced his new model La Voiture Noire. Color: Black, made from carbon and very expensive, which cost $18.9 million (16.8 million euros).
Moreover, it will take another 2.5 years before the car, of which only one copy will be made, will be finished. After all, Bugatti has to figure out how the car should be precisely designed and homologated.
Most expensive ever
It sounds too crazy, do you think? Who buys such a car? Car enthusiasts can buy different Ferraris McLarens and Lamborghinis for that sum, which they can also use immediately. And yet the car is already sold. This makes it the most expensive car ever. Bugatti has not released the identity of the buyer, but it would be someone with a huge bond with the brand, according to the automaker. And clearly someone with a serious bank account.
For some, status, or the preservation of wealth is more important, and then the impressive price tag of the Bugatti is no problem.
“This is not so outrageous if you compare it with the art sector,” Achim Anscheidt, design director of Bugatti, to The Verge.
Buying an exclusive Bugatti, for any price, is the same as buying shares for multimillionaires, says Achim Anscheidt, design director of Bugatti, to The Verge. Bugatti’s clients are accustomed to “designing their yachts and planes themselves.” In addition, Anscheidt adds, “is not this excessive if you compare it with the art sector.”
That’s right. The value of the Bugatti of $18.9 million will describe a reversed curve of a normal car: as soon as it is delivered, the value will increase. After about 20 years he will probably be even better. Only a complete fool would dare to crawl behind the wheel.
The enormous price is due to ‘La Voiture Noire’ solely due to the tasteful design and especially the shortage. Compared to the Chiron, Bugatti did not bring any improvement in the possibilities under the bonnet of the car.
