Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire
Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire, at $19 million, is the world’s most expensive car and also an homage to the car that signifies Bugatti’s rich history: the Type 57 SC Atlantic. La Voiture Noire brings is then, at the same time, a modern interpretation and an homage, bringing the speed, technology, luxury and aesthetic of an icon into the new era—automotive haute couture.
Art and engineering come together. The Rolls-Royce Sweptail, eclipsed by the La Voiture Noire as the world’s most expensive car, is still the most expensive British car ever made at $13 million. Only the finest materials have gone into the interior: cosseting leather, polished metal, a wooden shelf for luggage and a full-length glass panoramic roof. The exterior continues Rolls-Royce’s Art Deco design and factors in notes from vintage Rolls-Royce models and luxury yachts.
Koenigsegg CCXR Trevita
“Trevita” translates into “three whites”: the car, with unique coated fibers of silver-white, represents Koenigsegg’s departure from their traditional black carbon fibres, and when hit with sunlight, sparkles as if embossed with diamonds.
