Bugatti has pulled the covers back and has sold what it claims to be the most expensive car in the world. Making its debut at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland, the “La Voiture Noire” was sold for an eye-watering $12.5 million USD. The car, built to commemorate the 110th anniversary resembles the classic Batmobile and features a 16-cylinder engine and six tailpipes.
“We are paying tribute to a long tradition, to France and to the creative work of Jean Bugatti,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S, in a statement. “At the same time, we are transferring extraordinary technology, aesthetics and extreme luxury to a new age.”
The buyer of the car has not been revealed.
