La Voiture Noire – The Most Expensive Car in The World Is Still Just A “Shell”

La Voiture Noire, the latest Bugatti model, is still two and a half years from competition. According to some sources, it is based on Bugatti Veyron and even has the same engine.

The car was displayed on the Geneva Motor Show, but Tim Bravo, Bugatti’s Head of Communications, admits that is still far away from being functional.

“It’s not the final car,” Bravo said. “We only started working on the project half a year ago, when the customer agreed to our project proposal, we started building it. The car will be delivered only in two to two and a half years.”

Bugatti equipped the car with a battery pack and a small electric motor for the show so that it was able to roll in on its own power.
Darkened windows covered up the fact that the interior still isn’t finished.


Once completed in 24 to 30 months, it will be powered by 8.0L W16 engine with four turbochargers, delivering 1,500 horsepower and 1,600 Nm of torque.
