Even if you’re not a car enthusiast, you must have heard of the name “Bugatti”. Over the years Bugatti built a brand known for exclusivity and elegance. Bugatti unveiled “La Voiture Noire“ (meaning the Black Car in French) earlier this March, and it is the world’s most expensive new car sold at $18.68 million. Only one will be built and it won’t be ready for another 2 1/2 years. The car pays homage to the art deco design of the Type 57SC Atlantic, one of the most coveted classic cars in the world. Designed in 1934 by Jean Bugatti, eldest son of company founder Ettore Bugatti, only four were made. Three are accounted for while the fourth one, which was lost in World War II, would be valued at well over $100 million if found today. We were fortunate enough to spot this one at the Pebble beach last weekend.
Till next time,
