Everyone loves a good mystery, and when it involves what could be the most expensive car in the world, it is irresistible.

The famous Bugatti Type 57 SC Atlantic Coupe from the 1930s is regarded as a masterpiece of automotive design. Four were made and, according to legend, the only black version disappeared around 1940, when Bugatti shipped their cars and goods from Molsheim, France, to the company's secondary factory in Bordeaux to keep them safe from the Nazis.

Everything else arrived safely, but not that special Atlantic. Dubbed La Voiture Noire ("The Black Car"), this spectacular car is an unsolved mystery in automotive history.

This car, chassis no. 57453, has never been found. Experts estimate that the car would be worth upwards of $100 million if it was ever discovered, making it the most valuable car on the planet.

In 2019, Bugatti created a one-off tribute to this fascinating automobile, reusing the name La Voiture Noire and selling it for more than 11 million Euro (pre-tax).

To honor this new hyper sports car and the legend of the original, Jacob & Co. is introducing the one-off Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire. Encased in 18K black gold and set with natural black baguette-cut sapphires, resulting in a unique all-black aesthetic, this timepiece channels the spirit of both remarkable cars, combining the grand complication of the Twin Turbo Furious with the singular history of La Voiture Noire.

Dynamic and supremely comfortable, the Twin Turbo Furious Bugatti La Montre Noire matches Bugatti's performance and excellence standards, while also fulfilling the Bugatti promise of versatility.

The original La Voiture Noire is the most perplexing automotive enigma in history. Some experts think that the car never got on that train, even though there are eyewitness accounts that it did. Others think it went missing along the way and will be eventually be found in a barn somewhere in the wilds of France. Still others think it was destroyed to keep it out of hands of the Nazis, or that it is languishing in some car collector's private collection and will never see the light of day.

How Escrow Works

Buyer creates an escrow account
One of the two parties, either the Buyer or Seller, will initiate the transaction. This process begins when the user inquires about the offering and creates an account on CryptoExchange. With an account set up, the two parties can solidify the terms of their agreement.
Buyer pays
The Buyer or Seller can initiate the trade. The Buyer sends the cryptocurrency from their account to the escrow service, where it is immediately transferred to a USD stablecoin and stored in a no-interest escrow account. The value of the cryptocurrency is protected from volatility until both parties agree the transaction is complete.
Seller ships product
The Buyer sends cryptocurrency to CryptoExchange's escrow service for safekeeping. Following this, the Seller sends the product to the Buyer and submits the associated tracking information to CryptoExchange. The Buyer will then verify they have received the merchandise.
Buyer accepts product
When the product arrives, the Buyer must inspect the product and determine if they want to keep it within a set number of days. If the product doesn't meet the specifications, the Buyer may choose to reject the offering.
CryptoExchange releases payment to Seller
If the offering is as specified, the Buyer can choose to accept the product. When this happens, CryptoExchange will convert the stablecoin to the original cryptocurrency and release it to the Seller.
