German automaker Volkswagen, has unveiled  the most expensive new car ever built.With a sale price of 16.7 million euros ($19 million), the Bugatti La Voiture Noire was publicly debuted  at the Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland.

Bugatti introduced La Voiture Noire, which is French for “the black car,” to the world and immediately , it was sold to an unnamed individual for an incredible €16.7 million or $18.9 million (that’s $12.5 million for the car, plus another $6.4 million in local and luxury taxes). Bugatti refused to identify the buyer but said it is someone with an enormous attachment to the brand.

A coupe with the comfort of a luxury limousine and muscle of a hypercar, La Voiture Noire, the French automaker says, is a modern interpretation of the legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, which celebrates its 80th anniversary this year. Only four were ever made of that car, which was designed by Jean Bugatti, son of Bugatti founder Ettore Bugatti, and today only three remain. (The fourth seems to have disappeared shortly before the German invasion of France during World War II. Its whereabouts are unknown.) Moreover, only two are 100 percent original (clothing designer Ralph Lauren repainted his car with a non-Bugatti color), making them among the most valuable cars in the world.
