Bugatti loves to push the boundaries of design, technology and performance and their latest embodiment of this is the exclusive Bugatti Centodieci. This magnificent automobile, limited to ten, is an homage to and modern reinterpretation of the brand’s legendary supercar of the 1990’s, the EB110.
The Bugatti Centodieci
The Centodieci (Italian for 110) is an evolution in both shape and technology of Romano Artioli’s epochal EB110, which, when presented in 1991, was considered the fastest and most extraordinary supercar of its time.
Featuring a modern interpretation of the classic wedge shape and with the iconic W16 engine, the Centodieci transports the EB110 gracefully into a new millennium. The result is simply stunning: even sportier and more extreme than the Chiron and Divo, yet elegant and timeless like the La Voiture Noire, the Centodieci is a one-of-a-kind Bugatti for the connoisseur.
Bugatti designers and engineers faced several technical challenges during the development of the Centodieci. Transporting the classic look of a supercar of the late 1980s into the new millennium and respecting its spirit without copying was technically complex, to say the least.
Additionally, the completely different aesthetic appearance had to fit in perfect harmony with the aerodynamic and thermal requirements of the potent 16-cylinder power train, now with an impressive output of 1,600 PS.
The Centodieci pushes all boundaries of imagination with its breathtaking performance and pioneering design. The ten limited-edition vehicles are distinguished by their perfect elegance and sculptural beauty, making the Centodieci a true, tangible work of art.
Oh, did we forget to mention the price? That would be $9,000,000. for one. That’s right, nine million dollars.
