Bugatti’s latest creation, the Centodieci, which pays homage to the EB110 of the '90s, has been revealed at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance over the weekend.
Taking inspiration from the Chiron and the Bugatti EB110 Super Sport (produced between 1991 and 1995), Centodieci looks menacing. The most recognisable throwback to the EB110 Super Sport is its wedge shape and the 5 cut-outs seen behind the windows, as well as that large rear wing, which undoubtedly keeps the vehicle glued to the road at speed.
Talking about speed, the Centodieci features a W16, quad-turbocharged 8.0-litre engine which produces stellar outputs of 1 176 kW and it will smash zero to 100 kph in just 2.4 seconds and go on to reach a top speed of 420 kph. 200 kph comes up in just 6.1 seconds while getting to 300 kph will take just 13.1 seconds. Top speed is electronically cut off at 380 kph.
"It's not just the top speed that makes a hyper sports car. With the Centodieci, we once again demonstrate that design, quality and performance are just as important. The increased power and lower weight further improve performance - for even better acceleration at high speeds. The Centodieci offers our customers an improved power-to-weight ratio and even more dynamic handling," says Stephan Winkelmann.
Only 10 units will be produced with each unit priced at €8-million which translates to an eye-watering sum of over R135-million. Yikes! According to Bugatti, all 10 are already spoken for.
