The French manufacturer of hyper sports cars continues to pursue exceptional design and vast power with the new special edition Centodieci.
Bugatti celebrates its 110th anniversary with a limited edition car, the Centodieci. With a long history of pursuing exceptional design and vast power, the French manufacturer of hyper sports cars continues down this path with its latest homage to the historic EB110.
The Centodieci takes its styling cues from both the Chiron Sport (far right) and the classic EB110 (far left) There are many areas in which the new Bugatti Centodieci echoes the former super sports car of the 1990s.
The flat, horseshoe-shaped radiator at the front reveals its depth only from the side view, with the newly developed, deep-seated front spoiler and the three-section air intakes. The iconic Bugatti horseshoe has been reduced, while the Bugatti logo Macaron sits on the hood, which is interrupted at the centre by a black element.
The front is subordinated to the generally low geometry of the vehicle, despite its original, predominant cooling surface. The newly developed, complex and very narrow headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights provide the perfect match. Newly developed lighting elements allowthe front and rear sections to pay respectful homage to the EB110 while at the same time transposing this appealing visual reminiscence into modern technology.
The overhanging rear wing on the Centodieci is permanently attached in the style of the original EB110 SS Instead of the graphic two-dimensional rear of the EB110 with its two pill-shaped taillights, the Centodieci relies on a wide air outlet opening for more efficient engine thermals, bringing to life the flying taillight elements in graphic kinship with the EB110. As in the EB110, the engine is seen behind a transparent glass surface.
The rear is formed into a single ventilation hole, characterised by the eight rear light elements, 2+2 exhaust tailpipes positioned on top of each other in a black matt anodised finish and a performance diffuser to improve downforce. The overhanging rear wing is permanently attached in the style of the original EB110 SS.
The Centodieci also features the iconic 8.0-litre W16 engine with 1,577bhp at 7,000rpm. An additional air inlet in the area of the oil cooler reliably regulates the temperature of the enhanced engine. The Centodieci sprints from zero to 100km/h in 2.4 seconds, to 200km/h in 6.1 seconds and to 300km/h in 13.1 seconds, while its top speed is electronically limited to 380km/h.

The small series, limited to 10 vehicles (and already sold out) and handcrafted in Molsheim, France, will be delivered in two years at unit prices starting at $12.3 million.
After its short period in Italy, Bugatti has now been back at its old headquarters in Molsheim, France, for almost 20 years. This is where Ettore Bugatti produced the very first vehicles that bore his name at the end of 1909.
