Bugatti Announces the “Budget” Version of the World’s Most Expensive Car

You’ve heard it in rap. You’ve seen it in movies. The name Bugatti is well known in the luxury automobile industry and of course, a major player in the flexing game. The French car manufacturer is known for their design beauty and many victories around the laps. Some of the most famous Bugattis include the Type 35 Grand Prix cars, the Type 41 Royale, the Type 57 Atlantic, and the Type 55 sports car. Bugatti is no stranger to the limelight, and their latest venture keeps them in it. 

A cheap new Bugatti doesn’t really exist. At $12.5 million, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is one of the most expensive new cars ever sold. It was revealed at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show and was inspired by Jean Bugatti’s legendary 1930s-era 57SC Atlantic. Luxury usually comes with a high price tag. Standard Chirons alone start at just under $3 million. If the price of the La Voiture Noire has you gobsmacked, a slightly more budget-friendly Chiron, the Chiron Noire, was recently announced by Bugatti. The model is limited to 20 units with a starting price of $3.3 million.

Luxury, inside and out

The special-edition Chiron comes in two versions: the Noire Élégance and Noire Sportive. The Élégance features a completely exposed carbon-fiber body, and the Sportive has a matte-black finish. Both models have a horseshoe grille with a unique linear design and a Bugatti badge made of solid silver and black enamel. The Noire has new Caractère wheels with black-painted calipers and a Noire script on the bottom corner of the side panels in front of the rear wheels. The Élégance has various exterior details, including the C-shaped Bugatti emblem, finished in aluminum. 

The interior of both models is dominated by black, with “Noire” appearing on the door sills and on the outside of the center console, as well as sewn into the headrests. The Sportive features an even darker interior. Its interior includes matte black switches, push-buttons, and rotary knobs on the dashboard, steering wheel, center console, and door handles. The Chiron Noire is powered by a quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16, the same mechanical setup as the standard Chiron. The budget Chiron is expected to arrive in mid 2020. Learn More
