The Geneva Motor Show is always good for a jaw-dropping moment, and this year's belonged to French marque Bugatti. We are talking about the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, a auto that makes the Chiron look "affordable" with only one to be ever produced. The vehicle, which will not be duplicated, is the most expensive new auto ever sold at 16.7 million euros (US$19 million).

"Bugatti has again proved that it makes the world's most powerful, most luxurious and most exclusive hyper sports cars", commented president Stephan Winkelmann. He called his Atlantic "La Voiture Noire" - the black vehicle.

Bugatti's ultra-wealthy customers appreciated the brand's expertise in turning out cars to their exacting specifications, said Bugatti design director Achim Anscheidt.

The rear strip light is also an exquisite piece of design which looks awfully delicate juxtaposed with the six exhaust pipes below it.

Powering the Chiron Black Car is a similar engine as is seen on the Chiron Sport.

A modern interpretation of the Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic. We worked long and hard on this design until there was nothing we could improve. The La Voiture Noire features a Chiron engine that gives it 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pound-feet of torque.

"At the same time, we are transferring extraordinary technology, aesthetics and extreme luxury to a new age".

The company hasn't revealed the name of buyer who snapped up La Voiture Noire.

The Voiture Noire built by French supercar maker Bugatti carries a jaw-dropping price of €11m (£9.46m). However, the specs are similar to another of Bugatti's astonishing pieces of engineering, the Chiron. Bugatti's official line is that they're simply an "enthusiast".

Jean Bugatti, the eldest son of company's founder Ettore Bugatti, was a gifted automobile designer.
