I said it would go for $10 mil USD (which it did) but my limit was a bit lower.
So was mine haha! But the Bugatti La Voiture Noire is the top Bugatti dog as far as 1/1's go. It's unique. I'd think it'll of exceeded 拢20 million easy by now. Well it's a chapter nearing an end.

I just can't imagine a hybrid N/A replacement. Or worse eventually electric.

I'm off to watch the Johnny Bohmer video again.馃檪

BUGATTI CHIRON PROFIL脡E BECOMES MOST VALUABLE NEW CAR EVER AUCTIONED!
Wheel Tire Vehicle Grille Car

The Bugatti Chiron Profil茅e, a one-of-a-kind piece of Bugatti history and the last W16-powered car available from the Atelier, has sold for an incredible price of 9,792,500 Euros net. This sale at the RM Sotheby鈥檚 auction which took place in Paris on February 1st makes the Chiron Profil茅e the most valuable new car ever sold at auction.

With production of the Chiron1 models, the W16 Mistral2 and the Bolide3 completely sold out, the auction of the Chiron Profil茅e4 represented the last possible opportunity to buy a new Bugatti powered by the legendary W16 engine directly from the Atelier in Molsheim, France. With such an important piece of Bugatti history at stake, bidding was fierce both in the room and on the phones.

Hendrik Malinowski, Managing Director of Bugatti Automobiles, said: 鈥淲ith just one Chiron Profil茅e ever set to exist, it was important for us to offer the opportunity to acquire this piece of history to as many people as possible and we were excited with the enthusiasm of the global automotive community for this very special car. Bidders clearly recognized the importance and value of the Chiron Profil茅e, with an intense rivalry and a price that places this car firmly into the history books.鈥

With the winning bid of 9,792,500 Euros net, the new owner of the Chiron Profil茅e has seized the opportunity to add this automotive solitaire, the very last Bugatti offered for sale from the Atelier in Molsheim with the legendary W16 powertrain, to their collection.

Marcus G枚rig, Car Specialist at RM Sotheby鈥檚 said: 鈥淚t was an honor for us to host this very special lot in collaboration with Bugatti. The sale of the Chiron Profil茅e was one of the most anticipated moments of the whole auction, with enormous global interest in the car, the Profil茅e attracted considerable attention at the auction among bidders and curious viewers who had visited to have a glimpse of this unique car. With numerous bidders in the room and on the telephones, there was a real sense of history being made, and we congratulate the new custodian of the Chiron Profil茅e on their extremely special acquisition.鈥

The name 鈥楶rofil茅e鈥 draws inspiration from one of Jean Bugatti鈥檚 first creations 鈥 a specific Type 46 model known as Surprofil茅e, with a sleeker silhouette and an elegant sweeping tail. Just as that car remains an important part of Bugatti history, the Chiron Profil茅e has now written in its own chapter in the 114-year-old heritage of Bugatti.

Like the Chiron Pur Sport5, the Chiron Profil茅e uses the powerful 1,500 PS development of the quad-turbo 8.0-liter but the automotive solitaire is absolutely unique in its design and its details. The sweeping fixed rear wing directly integrated to the body of the car both provides stability at high speed and crucial cooling for the W16 engine. The Profil茅e is also the first Chiron sold fitted with a woven leather finish in the interior and its exterior color named Argent Atlantique is absolutely unique and has never 鈥 and will never be 鈥 applied on any other Chiron model. The horseshoe-style wheels inspired by the Bugatti famous horseshoe grille as well are designed and engineered only for this specific car and represent other details which can only be found on the Profil茅e.

I feel like Veyrons are a relative bargain these days. A tastefully spec鈥檇, well maintained and no-history car should do pretty decently in the coming years.
I think once the Bugatti Chiron is gone, about 12 months manufacturing production left, their prices will start rising. And people will think as you are now and the same will happen to them. I think, in time they may rise perhaps higher than the former.

It's funny how nostalgic people will get.馃檪

Veyrons cost of ownership is substantially larger than a Chiron, year to year. But then again, I don't buy cars to look at them.
