Guess What The Most Expensive New Car On The Planet Sold For

The Geneva Auto Show this week unveiled a record-setting, mind-boggling price tag for a one-off super Hyper Car. Before the event even opened, an extremely wealthy individual purchased the Bugatti La Voiture Noire ( french for "the black car") for just a tick shy of $19,000,000. A rep for the ultra-exotic manufacturer says it was $12.5 million for the car, plus another $6.4 million in local and luxury taxes.They refused to reveal the buyer but said it is someone with an enormous attachment to the brand. Well.....yeah.....

Some of the specs on this beast include what' sunder the hood: An 8-liter, 16-cylinder engine found in the pumping out 1,479 horsepower and 1,180 pounds-feet of torque. Before La Voiture was sold, the previous record purchase price for a new car was the Rolls Royce Sweptail, a $13 million one-off coupe that a customer had built from an original design.
