One would consider themselves quite lucky if they ever spot a supercar like the Bugatti La Voiture Noire.

So it was a bit weird when such an amazing supercar was spotted at a budget grocery store somewhere in Switzerland.

Of course, it sparked a lot of interest online as the car is one of the most expensive cars ever.

The automaker designed the Bugatti La Voiture Noire based on the Chiron.

It was a tribute to the Type 57 SC Atlantic, which was Jean Bugatti’s personal car.

In 2019, the one-off was unveiled as the world’s most expensive car at the time (although the official price was never confirmed.

Surprisingly, the owner of the car has remained unknown for all these years.

The Bugatti La Voiture Noire has been spotted several times in Switzerland, but each time there’s a different driver.

This time around the supercar has gone viral again after an image from September 2022 clicked by user ‘@jerome.l83‘ appeared online.

In the photo, the expensive supercar can be seen in front of a parking lot of a budget grocery store.

Many Instagram users commented on the photo and joked about the situation.

“How to stay richer longer,” said one commenter.

“I went over budget,” joked another user.

Despite all the jokes, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire might be worth even more by now.

And it is definitely worth its price tag as it comes with an amazing 16-cylinder 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged engine.

The engine gives the supercar 1,500 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque.

It can also go from 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 kph) in just 2.4 seconds with a top speed of 261 mph (420 kph).

Of course, many electric cars nowadays have a faster 0 to 60 mph speed, but there’s nothing that can match the style of the Bugatti La Voiture Noire.
