Bugatti announced a special-edition Chiron Noire model based on the $12.5 million La Voiture Noire.

The model comes in Noire Élégance and Sportive guises and is powered by the same quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16 found in the Chiron. 

Pricing starts at $3.3 million, and they are expected to arrive in mid-2020. 

Only one person could buy Bugatti's most expensive new car to date, the $12.5 million La Voiture Noire, which was inspired by Jean Bugatti's legendary 1930s-era 57SC Atlantic. Interest in the ultra-expensive one-off Bugatti was apparently so high, in fact, that the French hypercar maker decided to make 20 "budget" versions of it and sell them for $3.3 million each.

The new edition comes in two guises: the Noire Élégance and the Noire Sportive. The Élégance's carbon-fiber body is completely exposed, while the Sportive has a matte-black finish. The horseshoe grille features a unique linear design with a Bugatti badge made of solid silver and black enamel. The Noire models sport new Caractère wheels with black-painted calipers, and on the Élégance models, various exterior bits including the C-shaped Bugatti signature line are finished in aluminum. There's also a Noire script on the bottom corner of the side panels in front of the rear wheels.

Like the exterior, the interior is blacked out. In the Élégance models, the inner signature line is the only thing not black, but in the Sportive, the entirety of the interior is black including all the buttons and switches. Noire script (they're black on the Sportive models) is also flashed on the doorsills, center console, and it's stitched onto the headrests. A carbon badge in the center armrest touts the model's exclusivity.

The Noire-edition Chirons will be powered by the same 1500-hp quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W-16. Chiron Sports cars can also get Noire treatment for an extra $110,800. The Noire starts at around $3.3 million, and deliveries are expected to begin in mid-2020.
