Most Expensive Bugatti

The Bugatti world is full of super-fast, exceptionally looking, luxurious, and expensive cars. Staying true to its ethos, Bugatti built the world’s fastest cars primarily the Veyron (the cheapest Bugatti worth millions) and the Chiron, which etched their names in record books. Unsurprisingly, the Chiron also happens to be the most expensive car in the world from Bugatti (we are talking about one-offs and unique versions). That said, other most expensive Bugatti cars are even more exclusive than Chiron one-offs.

Top 5 Luxurious Bugatti Cars – A Deep Dive into Automotive Extravagance

There is a reason why Bugattis are so expensive, and here are their top 5 most expensive cars of all time, listed by price.

1. Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic

Price: $40 million

The 1939 Bugatti Type 57SC Atlantic, renowned for its sleek design and powerful supercharged engine, reached speeds up to 123 mph, earning it the title of the first supercar. With only four ever produced, including the elusive “La Voiture Noire,” it remains the most expensive Bugatti model and a subject of intrigue, with one of the four still unaccounted for.

During World War II, Ettore Bugatti shut down his Molsheim factory and relocated all equipment and projects to a facility near Bordeaux, including the La Voiture Noire. Experts speculate the car never made it, potentially hidden. If discovered, it could become the world’s most valuable car, valued at over a hundred million dollars.

All three remaining Type 57SC Atlantic cars have been traced. Chassis 57374 clinched top honors at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours, fetching over thirty million dollars, and is now housed in the Mullin Automotive Museum. Chassis 57473 met with a train accident in 1955, lay in a scrapyard for years, then restored for the 2010 Pebble Beach Concours. Designer Ralph Lauren acquired Chassis 57591 in 1988 for an undisclosed sum, joining his prestigious car collection.

2. Bugatti La Voiture Noire

Price: $18.9 million

Bugatti, founded on Ettore Bugatti’s motto of uniqueness, continues its legacy with the La Voiture Noire, a €11 million marvel paying homage to the 1934 Type 57SC Atlantic. Crafted from carbon fiber, its deep black gloss showcases intricate design cues and minimal chrome trim. Carbon fiber’s rarity and strength contribute to its exclusivity, akin to diamond integrity. Handcrafted details like LED headlights and bespoke wheels elevate its allure and cost.

Powered by an 8.0-L Quad Turbocharged W16 engine, boasting 1500-1600 horsepower, this most expensive Bugatti rivals top sports cars with 0-60 mph in under three seconds. The rear features a massive grille for engine cooling, while an end-to-end LED taillight adds sleekness. Though the interior remains undisclosed, Bugatti promises luxury akin to a limousine.

With only one Noire produced, reportedly not owned by Cristiano Ronaldo, its uniqueness and craftsmanship justify its exorbitant price, making it the most expensive car from Bugatti.

3. Bugatti Chiron Profilée

Price: $10.7 million

The unique Chiron Profilée fetched about $10.7 million at RM Sotheby’s Paris auction in February 2023. This impressive price makes the stunning hypercar one of the most expensive Bugatti cars ever auctioned.

It’s clear why such a high bid was necessary to claim this hypercar. How many such Bugatti cars are in the world? It’s the first and only Chiron Profilée ever made. The French brand planned to produce the model, which would have fit between the base Chiron and Chiron Pur Sport, but canceled the project after selling all 500 slots for its third hypercar sooner than expected. It also stands as the last purely gas-powered Bugatti to be sold. In other words, it’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

The custom-engineered Chiron Profilée is truly a marvel. Painted in model-specific Argent Atlantique, it features a unique shape with a redesigned front splitter and larger air intakes to enhance aerodynamic performance. It’s powered by Bugatti’s final quad-turbocharged W-16, producing an astounding 1,479 horsepower. Thanks to this powerful engine, the car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in just 2.3 seconds and has an electronically limited top speed of 236 mph.

4. 1937 Bugatti Type 57S

1937 Bugatti Type 57S

Price: $9.5 million

The Type 57 debuted in 1934, guided by Ettore Bugatti’s son Jean, featuring an aerodynamic chassis and lightweight metals like magnesium and aluminum.

First showcased at the 1935 London Motor Show, the original Bugatti Type 57S was displayed with Aerolithe coachwork. Early on, Bugatti offered three coachwork options for the Type 57S — the roadster, Atlantic coupe, and Atalante coupe. Around 20 factory chassis with coupe-style coachworks were produced until May 1938. Coachbuilders like Gangloff, Vanvooren, and Corsica also designed bodies for the Type 57S, but only 16 Type 57S chassis were crafted by non-factory coachworks.

The Type 57S delivered 175 horsepower, an increase from the Type 57’s 135 horsepower. Models with a Roots-type supercharger, marked with a C, produced 200 horsepower. The Type 57SC could hit 120 mph, making Bugatti one of the speediest production vehicles of the 1930s. In 2020, a 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante fetched approximately $9.5 million.

5. Bugatti Centodieci

Bugatti Centodieci

Price: $9 Million

The Bugatti Centodieci (“110” in Italian) is an exquisite, ultra-rare hypercar, honoring the legendary Bugatti EB 110 and marking the brand’s 110th anniversary. Debuted in 2019 at “The Quail,” the Centodieci is 20 kg lighter and more potent than the Chiron. With only ten units available, each priced at $9 million, it is not only the most expensive Bugatti but also one of the world’s priciest cars.

Inspired by the EB110, the Centodieci features five diamond-shaped air intakes and a wedge-shaped design, highlighted by a horseshoe radiator grille below the headlights. The rear flaunts eight taillights, four exhaust pipes, a sizable diffuser, and a fixed rear wing, enhancing its fierce look. The W16 engine, uniquely positioned under an EB110-style glass panel, echoes the original model. The Centodieci is now trading at $4-5 million above its initial price.
