Very obviously, slapping a Bugatti Chiron with French colors isn’t enough to emphasize how important 110 years of Bugatti is and so, the French supercar maker designed and produced a super exclusive small series car and calling it Bugatti Centodieci. To call the Bugatti Centodieci a supercar would be an insult. You don’t go around calling a 1,600 HP beast a supercar; it is practically up in the hypercar realm.
And this car isn’t for just any richie rich either. You ought to be the richest of the rich to own one because, the hypercar also also a hyper price tag too. It commands an astronomical €8 million (about US$8.9 million). Holy mother of… Anyways, if the Bugatti traditional breaking design language didn’t get your attention, I am sure the asking price will. 100 percent.
If you think the Bugatti Centodieci looks vaguely like the EB110, well that’s because, it is a homage to the supercar from the 90s, but with a lot more dimensions to it, obviously. Perhaps, a little too much dimensions. And what’s up with the giant cheese grater thingy on the C-pillar? Oh, wait. Those are for feeding cool air to the Centodieci’s 8L W16 engine. Centodieci, btw, literally means ‘110’ in Italian.
Strangely, transmission is not mention here. I am guessing it should be the same item as the Chiron. In any case, with monstrous power comes blindly fast acceleration and speed. The Bugatti Centodieci wipes the century sprint (0-100 km/h or 0-62 mph) in a scant 2.4 seconds and it takes just 6.1 seconds and 13.1 seconds for it to hit 200 km/h (124 mph) and 300 km/h (186 mph), respectively, before sending it on its way to a staggering 380 km/h (236 mph) top speed.
Bugatti Centodieci is a small series build with just 10 vehicle being offered and at the time of this article, all 10 vehicles have been spoken for. Damn. The world certainly is not lacking of hyper rich petrolheads. Even then, don’t expect the handcrafted in Molsheim, France, super expensive sports car to be on the road anytime soon. It will only be delivered “in two years” time. Meanwhile, you can learn more HERE.
