1. Its Name Holds Centuries of History

History has it that, Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of the legendary founder of the automobile company, Bugatti, Ettore Bugatti designed and built a one-of-a-kind vehicle. It was one out of only four of the Type 57 SC Atlantic ever to be made. And he called it “Bugatti La Voiture Noire” which means “The Black Car” in Frenc. On a rather mystic note, the vehicle disappeared without a trace after the world war.

It has not been found since and has only remained a figment of imagination and folk tale passed down from generation to generation. But with the grand reveal in 2019, Bugatti hoped to add more grandeur to its memory by celebrating its heritage and all that the brand stands for in the new Bugatti La Voiture Noire. The essence of this one-of-a-kind vehicle that only one supercar fan could have was to celebrate the 110-year anniversary of the car brand. It, therefore, took much dedication from both the Bugatti company and the patron who paid a hefty amount for it. 

2. It Is Powred by a W16 Engine

The priced Bugatti car packs its W16, 8-Litre quad-turbocharged engine which is also used in the Bugatti Veyron. This particular engine was debuted by the company only in 2005 and has since been used in only a few select hypercars including the prestigious Veyron. This beast of an engine has a stunning power of 1,103 KW capable of making it from 0 to 100 kph in a meager 2.4 seconds.

It packs a maximum speed of 400 kph. The engineering behind the engine is nothing but engineering excellence. A W16 engine consists of a  sixteen-cylinder piston with four banks of four cylinders in a configuration of W. These types of engines are extremely rare, used in hypercars like the very high-end luxury automobiles, and are rumored to be powered by four turbochargers each costing about $6,400.  

3. It Took Two and a Half Years to Build

A car like this requires a whole lot of detailed work and rushed completion is not an option, the vehicle itself was announced at the 2019 Geneva Motor show. However,t eh idea presented at the show was a mere mockup and the real work was yet to begin. The mockup took a couple of weeks after the prestigious project was given a green light.  One could say two and a half years is a lot more for building one car but if you compare this duration with the months used in making a single Rolls Royce, you get a much better perspective on the intricate build process and decision making that goes into building a car that is truly like none other and has no other.

4. It is Mounted on a Similar Frame to the Bugatti Chiron

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire wasn’t an entirely new build right from scratch as the Bugatti team picked u the frame for the Bugatti Chiron for building the vehicle. This may suggest that the Black Car is a mere replica of the Chiron but he would be a gravely wrong assumption as the vehicle is as unique as a single make vehicle could ever be. It has a special sense of history, significance, and place in the books of the brand that Chiron cannot compare. 

5. The Entire Carbon-Fibre Body Is Handcrafted

It isn’t only the Rolls Royce that has hand-crafted parts. The Black Car is fitted with a carbon-fiber body that was handcrafted entirely in painstakingly detailed craftsmanship and Bugatti excellence. The body is one of a kind as is visibly seen but it’s not only about its form. The body is a magnificent work of function that ensures that the vehicle performs at its stunning 400 kph.
