Christmas trees in every city centre, fairy lights and illuminated stars as far as the eye can see, no region in France is as festively decorated at this time of the year as Alsace, France. Christmas markets are abound everywhere, and even Molsheim, where Bugatti is headquartered, has its own Christmas market.

In order to maintain a certain level of festivity, Bugatti decided to offer a special presentation that will be on exhibit right next to the beautifully decorated Christmas tree. Since early December, passers-by have been able to marvel at the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, safely locked in a glass container.

"I am very grateful to Bugatti for this wonderful gift to our city. Now all residents of Molsheim have the very special opportunity to admire this unique masterpiece, the 'La Voiture Noire', of which Ettore Bugatti would certainly have been very proud," says Laurent Furst, Mayor of Molsheim at the inauguration of the glass container last week.

La Voiture Noire will be exhibit in the Molsheim city centre until the end of March. The hyper sports car, which has already been sold for $17.8 million, pays homage to the legendary Type 57 SC Atlantic by Jean Bugatti, which went missing at the beginning of the World War II and was never found again.
