Bugatti La Voiture Noire: One Model for $18.9 Million!

Debut at 2019 Geneva Motor Show

At the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti made one of its biggest debuts to date. The Bugatti La Voiture Noire stunned the crowd as a single model limited edition. At $18.9 million USD after taxes, this car is quite amazing. The Noire is one-off vehicle inspired by Jean Bugatti’s legendary 57SC Atlantic. Unfortunately, the 57SC Atlantic went missing during the pre-WWII era. Regardless, this Bugatti is an absolute masterpiece that remembers a historic model.

To no surprise, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire packs some major power. Under the “hood”, is a 1,500 horsepower W16 engine. More figures are yet to be known, but this engine is an absolute powerhouse. This has been quite the year at Geneva as the Noire isn’t the only 1,000+ horsepower reveal. But, this has also been seen as somewhat controversial. Why? Because many people wonder why these vehicles are not fully electric, or at least hybrid. But, to each their own!

Sometimes, a car needs to pay homage to its heritage and stick more traditional. The Noire is a great example of why. With only one model on the street, the emissions will probably be less than a cow produces. Especially, with the minimal time it’ll actually see the road. But, obviously, EVs are and will be the future. There is no exception to this rule. It’s better to start adapting now rather than when it’s too late…

Wow! $6.4 Million USD in Taxes!

As with every luxury good, there are taxes on Bugatti models. At these prices, obviously it’s not cheap. With a MSRP of $12.5 million USD, taxes alone skyrockets the price to $18.9 million USD. What? Why? How!? Yep, that is no joke. A whopping total of $6.4 million USD in taxes. With that money, the owner could buy a Divo, which comes in slightly under $6 million USD. Or, maybe two Chiron models at slightly under $3 million per unit. Either way, whomever buys this car is paying as much in taxes for this one vehicle as 610 average families in the U.S.. So, in the end, having money doesn’t really mean tax exemption. But, there’s no reason to dive into a dispute!
