“This time I hope no one better be able to afford it “- says Stephan Winkelmann, President
Bugatti shocked the world at Geneva with the new “La Voiture Noire”.
The latest from Bugatti is an insane hypercar inspired by the Type 57 SC Atlantic of the 1930’s.
With the same W16 engine that powers the Chiron, it boasts very impressive performance stats, and as you may imagine, a very impressive price tag as well.
16.7 Million Euros!
One would think that such a price tag would ensure it never sold. Or at least Stephan Winkelmann, the president of Bugatti thought so. Unfortunately for him, the car sold even before unveiling at Geneva, and he is absolutely fuming. Here is what he had to say.
“I really wanted to build a car so expensive that no one would even think about purchasing it. So I could keep it for myself, as my private pride and joy. I can’t believe some rich prick snagged it right under my nose by actually buying it! Can you believe this bullshit?”
After a few minutes of senseless rambling, he revealed their future plans:
“Fuck it. 16 Million EUR was not enough. Luckily I am the president of the company. I make the calls. I have decided to build another ridiculously overpriced car, that is also just a re-bodied Bugatti Chiron. This time the price tag till be even higher. So high that not even the most inbred rich Arab will consider buying it. See you in Geneva in 2020.”
