La Voiture Noire, French for ‘the black car’, is a one-off commission speculated to have been made for Ferdinand Piech, chairman of Volkswagen Group (VW) from 1993 to 2002. The car itself cost ’11 million, though value-added tax and luxury taxes bumped up the final price.

Geneva motor show 2019: full report and pictures

Welcome to Autocar’s extended coverage of the Geneva motor show, one of Europe’s premier motoring events and the stage for a long list of new car debuts.

Geneva is an institution, having been held annually for more than 100 years. It has always been held up alongside Frankfurt as a priority show for manufacturers looking to unveil their latest concepts and production models for the first time.

Unlike the exodus of last year’s Paris motor show, there were only a few big names that wouldn’t be appearing with new models in Switzerland this year, with Ford and Jaguar Land Rover being the most prominent no-shows.
