Bugatti’s Carbon Fiber ‘Chiron Noire’ Is A 1,500HP Hypercar Inspired By The Past

The world of classic automobiles is full of awe-inspiring stories, long-lost legends, and one-of-a-kind chassis that have influenced the genre as a whole. Among these iconic platforms, Bugatti’s “La Voiture Noire” stands alone — a bespoke Type 57 SC Atlantic crafted by Jean Bugatti, himself, and an artifact of the Second World War that many thought they’d never see again.

In 1936, the shadowy La Voiture Noire made its debut — resulting in only four examples in its two-year manufacturing run and fostering its reputation as the “most famous, and most beautiful car in the world.” Following its disappearance, enthusiast’s collectively agreed that, if found, the Noire would undoubtedly be the medium’s most valuable variant, even by today’s standards. As such, Bugatti’s Design Director, Achim Anscheidt, has decided to pay homage to the classic with a modern-day reinterpretation, the Chiron Noire. The car arrives in both a performance-oriented “Chiron Noire Sportive” and luxury-focused “Chiron Noire Élégance” iteration and boasts an extensive range of lavish inductions, including exposed carbon fiber covers, Bugatti’s famous sports grille, and a Bugatti “Macaron” emblem constructed from solid silver and black enamel. Beneath the hood, the hypercar’s iconic 16-cylinder engine produces a monstrous 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, calling upon the Chiron’s lauded performance characteristics to bring the Noire into contemporary standing. Only 20 examples are slated for production, with deliveries starting in the second quarter of 2020 for an estimated $3,326,000.
