OSNEPALNEWS, Kathmandu, 8th March: French supercar maker Bugatti has unveiled the world’s most expensive new car, sold to an unnamed buyer for at least $11m (£9.5m) before tax. It is thought to have overtaken the previous new car record – about £8-9m for a Rolls-Royce Sweptail. To celebrate its 110-year anniversary, Bugatti built La Voiture Noire – a one-off inspired from Bugatti’s Type 57 SC Atlantic of the 1930s.
Bugatti described the car as a homage to the Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic, of which only four were made between 1936 and 1938. The fashion designer Ralph Lauren is the owner of the last Atlantic produced.
