Did the Portuguese buy the most expensive car in the world?  - Observer

Mystic drag-se from 2019when Bugatti surprised everyone at the Geneva Motor Show with La Voiture Noire, a unique Chiron-based piece designed for Jean Bugatti, a Type 57 SC Atlantic enthusiast. Customization and the fact that it is one-off justify the astronomical cost of this € 11 million hypersport (before taxes), immediately became the most expensive (new) car in the world.

Someone paid 11 million euros to keep this car

Since the owner’s name has never been released, despite the French brand exerting a lot of pressure in this direction, the identity of the buyer has generated a lot of speculation since then. Cristiano Ronaldo’s name is mentioned in the pressbut it is still unknown who actually owns this authentic piece of art on wheels.

The most expensive car in the world is ready to ship. Will it be Ronaldo?

Now, about two months after Bugatti announced “La Voiture Noire”, here is the post with hashtags #bugattichiron and #noir on Instagram of Karina Lima, famous for her fabulous collection of cars, one could believe that the Portuguese would become the happy owners of the most expensive hypersport in history.… This is because the pilot, who came to compete in several major touring championships in Portugal and Italy, as well as Lamborghini’s European Super Trofeo, filmed approaching an all-black Chiron, and the words “ Noir “on the doorstep from the driver’s side.

Pictures taken in Portugal.in what appears to be a day tour of the beautiful landscapes of Arrábida, with luxury trio: Porsche, Ducati and Bugatti that, despite the fact that it is completely black and has such a window sill, this is not “La Voiture Noire”… Rather, it is the Edition Noire, a new configuration for the Chiron that Bugatti began rolling out this year, inspired by La Voiture Noire.

If you look closely, the differences are obvious between the unit that Karina Lima drives and the most expensive car in the history of the automotive industry. From the start, because the back one-off it is unmistakably recognizable by its six tailpipes. In addition, the horseshoe flanking the Bugatti badge on the front grille is wider and rounder than on the Edition Noire, with the difference that the base does not have a central protrusion, as seen in the video (above) of the Portuguese. … In addition, the Bugatti “La Voiture Noire” has side vents to cool the mechanics behind the front wheels, which this special edition only has on the doorstep, without the use of generous air intakes in front of the wheels. former Portuguese driver featured in the video.

However, there is also the question of whether this is an Edition Noire, the series is limited to 20 pieces. – all of them have already been sold. This is because, according to Bugatti, this special edition is based on Pur Sport and has the ‘Chiron Sport’ lettering on the fuel cap. In the video, the pilot’s ex-hypersport car lacks the ‘Sport’ lettering, and the exhaust looks crisp as well, with the Chiron’s usual twin-trapezoidal outlets. But when one of her followers asked which version of Chiron it was, Karina answered “noir.”… And this is what you see in another post:

Correct, in fact, we will be dealing with an instance with a power of 1500 hp. and 1600 Nm of torque extracted from the Quadriturbo 8.0 W16. And at 420 km / h, the maximum speed, which is limited by the Chiron, will not be distinguished. the La Voiture Noire of an Edition Noire … In any case, we will always have a work of art and engineering in front of us. Within the reach of a few.

Remember that Karina Lima is an ardent fan of big cars, but she has I like it very elitistrecognizing special attraction for Koenigsegg creations… In fact, there are even those on social networks who call it “Princess Koenig”as the Portuguese, who divides himself between Lisbon and Monaco, has four hypersports from the Swedish manufacturer in his rich collection of hulls, including the first Koenigsegg One: 1. So there are those who have already bet that Jesko will be on the way to your garage … Chiron shouldn’t mind.
