The Bugatti La Voiture Noire
The Bugatti La Voiture Noire was first revealed at the 2019 Geneva motor show. The French luxury company built only one of the prototype supercar. It is a tribute to the 110th anniversary of the founding of the company. The car is a modern interpretation of the mythical and legendary Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic. There were four of that type built between 1936 and 1938.
The La Voiture Noire is powered by a 8.0-litre quad turbocharged W16 engine. The 7-speed dual-clutch gearbox and the all-wheel-drive system are revised to allow a more relaxed driving experience. Softer dampers and a revised chassis add to the factor. The car has six exhaust pipes.

The owner of the car-Cristiano Ronaldo
Bugatti has confirmed that the car has an owner, but refused to confirm the name. Initial reports suggested that the owner of the car was Ferdinand Piech, former Chairman of the Volkswagen Group. However the Spanish media is saying that the owner of the car is actually Portuguese footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo. A report says that he spent 11 million euros on the car.
Even if he is the owner of the car, he has to wait until 2021 to drive it. This is due to safety and prototype testing reasons. Cristiano Ronaldo already has a unique car collection. His collection consists of a Mercedes C Class Sport Coupe, a Rolls-Royce Phantom, a Ujn Ferrari 599 GTO, a Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4, an Aston Martin DB9, a McLaren MP4 12C, and a Bentley Continental GTC Speed.
