Looks like the windshield wiper is broken. Stuck in the on position.

Car must be a piece of junk.

Their Chiron (1500HP,V16-QuadTurbo) remains the most beautiful car ever built...but the La Voiture Noire ("The Black Car") looks quite stunning in it's own right.

La Voiture Noire

Chiron

Is that French for Turbofire?...

Nah. It's even sexier than that. Translates to...wait for it..."Black Car". What marketing genius.

I got to admit, that is a slinky looking design.
Shiny!

Trabants for the elite few. The peasants can walk.

The Konigsegg will eat its lunch, and has.

I wonder if this car signals a surrender in its battle with Koenigsegg for the ultimate high performance car. As long as the Agera produces more power and has a 1,000 pound advantage in weight, the Koenigsegg is always going to beat the Bugatti. If I had to drive one long distance, no question that I'd take the Bugatti - much more comfortable and civilized car. And I'd race anything on the road not designed by Christian Koenigsegg.

It'll probably be on CCTV when the owner first pulls into a parking garage and takes out its grille and then hi-centers at the entrance. Either that or shortly after he hands the keys over to the restaurant parking valet ... ;-)

Does it come with a trailer hitch? I’d have to put on a hitch carrier so I can haul deer.

Top Gear skewered commie cars well including the trabant.

Except for the nose, it’s gorgeous.

At a price tag of $19 million, I’d demand they redesign it for me.

What if a person took $15 million to one of the top custom car shops and told them to create me a car that will turn the owners of Bugatti and Koenigsegg green with envy? I wonder what they could come up with given a gigantic budget like that. Next time I have a spare $15 million, I'll give it a try.

It’s just a warmed over Veyron with a bigger price tag. The Konigsegg will eat its lunch, and has.

With the new Koenigsegg Jesko coming out with a top speed of over 300 mph, I truly think that Bugatti isn't going to try and compete for the top performance title anymore. When Bugatti's ultimate performance car, the Chiron, got trounced across the board by the Koenigsegg Agera RS, Bugatti realized that it had met its match. After all the fanfare with setting the 0-400kph-0 record with the Chiron (driven by Juan Pablo Montoya), it must have been embarrassing to have a Koenigsegg Agera RS shatter the record by over 5.5 seconds shortly after. The engineers at Bugatti have to know a gap of that size is insurmountable without a total costly top-to-bottom redesign of the Bugatti. Simple physics - the car with a significant power-to-weight ratio advantage and that can effectively get that power to the ground will win every time.

I think Bugatti is going for the title of most elegant supercar on the market. An extreme luxury car with a 240 mph top end and blistering acceleration is nothing to sneeze at.

That nose has been on Bugattis for the last 80 years or so. :-)
