Bugatti will unveil its $18.68 million La Voiture Noire to the North American market at the Pebble Beach Concours D’Elegance in Monterey, California, on Tuesday. Dubbed the most expensive new car in the world, the La Voiture Noire was first unveiled at the Geneva International Motor Show in March and will spend the next few days on display at the prestigious California auto show.
Details on the La Voiture Noire include plenty of power from its quad-turbo W-16 engine that is rated 1,500 horsepower. It has 1,180 pounds per feet of torque and can reach 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. Top speed on the car is 261 mph.
The La Voiture Noire, which translates to The Black Car, was designed for the ride as designers capped its top speed to allow for better cornering, CNBC reported. The car also reportedly takes on the art deco style of the Type 57SC Atlantic of which only four were made.
