La Voiture Noire, a unique masterpiece that pays homage to Jean Bugatti’s legendary Type 57 SC Atlantic and was inspired by the Chiron, was on display by Bugatti at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019. When it was being transported from Molsheim to Bordeaux in 1938, this fabled automobile vanished without explanation, and it has never been recovered.

To honor this elusive piece of automotive history, Bugatti created the unique La Voiture Noire. This one-of-a-kind car sold for an astonishing $16.5 million (16.7 million euros) at auction, setting a record as the most expensive new car ever. Despite its hefty price tag, the identity of the owner has remained a closely guarded secret.

Recently, the La Voiture Noire has made headlines due to ongoing speculation about its mysterious owner. Some believe it belongs to soccer superstar Cristiano Ronaldo, while others think it might be owned by automotive legend Ferdinand Piech.

Neither has confirmed these rumors. A recent sighting of the car in a budget grocery store parking lot has sparked both amazement and humor on social media. The juxtaposition of such opulence in a modest setting has people talking, with some marveling at sight and others joking about unique strategies to afford such a luxury.

This extraordinary vehicle, powered by an immense 16-cylinder, 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged engine producing 1,479 horsepower, continues to capture the imagination of car enthusiasts everywhere. The La Voiture Noire, with its seamless combination of power and sophistication, remains a marvel of automotive craftsmanship.
