“With the Centodieci we pay homage to the EB110 super sports car which was built in the 1990s and is very much a part of our tradition-steeped history,”
These are the words from Bugatti President, Stephan Winkelmann, during the unveiling of the new limited-edition $9m (₦3.3 billion) Centodieci Hypercar at the Monterey’s annual auto week.
The Centodieci, which means 110 in Italian, is not only celebrating Bugatti’s 110th anniversary, but it’s also paying homage to its iconic 90s supercar the EB110, which, was built for Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday in 1991.
Unlike Bugatti’s one-off $18.7 million La Voiture Noire, which was built for grand touring, the Centodieci was built for speed.
It features the infamous Bugatti’s 8.0-liter W16 engine can move the Hypercar from zero to 62 mph in just 2.4 seconds and 124 mph in 6.1 seconds and to 186 mph in 13.1 seconds. Like the Chiron, Bugatti electronically limited the top speed of the car to 236 mph.
