This model is a perfect 1:8 scale recreation of the second car, the fabled ‘La Voiture Noire’ (The Black Car). Bugatti was so taken by the grace and sophistication of his creation that he had the second Atlantic built for his own personal use. At the outbreak of the Second World War, La Voiture Noire was sent to a safe region, as German troops invaded Alsace, and lost forever. Its last historical mention is on a list of cars that were to be sent to Rue Alfred Daney in Bordeaux in February 1941. Its disappearance more than 80 years ago remains the biggest mystery in Bugatti’s fabled history. Today, “La Voiture Noire” lives on as a myth.
