The $8.9 million Centodieci was initially revealed by Bugatti almost four years ago, and the first client example is now ready for delivery.
The first customer example was displayed on Tuesday at Bugatti’s plant in Molsheim, France. Only 10 examples will be produced.
The exterior of the automobile is painted in EB110 Blue, a shade of blue that was used to line the Italian factory where the original EB110 was made and served as its hero color. The owner of this Centodieci already has an EB110 with the identical blue color scheme and silver wheels in his collection.
The inside of the Centodieci is built over the course of about 16 weeks, including a full day for the seats alone. The headrests have the “EB” logo embedded on them.
The Centodieci, which is Italian for “110,” was unveiled in 2019 to commemorate the EB110. The Centodieci is merely the most recent in a long line of contemporary coach-built specials based on the Bugatti Chiron, which began with the Divo unveiled in 2018. The same rigorous testing and evaluation procedures used for regular production cars are applied to Bugatti’s coach-built vehicles. A high-speed endurance run on Italy’s Nardo track is one of the toughest challenges. Here, a prototype is driven over 31,000 miles with only brief breaks for refueling, technical inspections, and driver swaps.
The 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine from Bugatti Chiron powers the Centodieci. According to Bugatti, the car will accelerate from 0 to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in 6.1 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 13.1 seconds thanks to the engine’s tuning, which increases power by 97 horsepower over the Chiron. However, Chiron’s electrically limited top speed of 261 mph is higher than the top speed that is governed for this vehicle, which is 236 mph.
