French Supercar maker Bugatti has unveiled its new supercar named Bugatti Centodieci, which generates 1,600 bhp a fraction faster than the Bugatti Chiron.
Bugatti Centodieci is an angular supercar which is inspired by the mid-engine EB110 supercar launched in 1991 when the company was owned by Romano Artioli.
The Centodieci (110 in Italian) marks the 110th anniversary of the founding of Bugatti, it has a newly developed, deep-seated front spoiler along with three-section air intakes, and the iconic Bugatti horseshoe is smaller than other Bugatti cars which is made to fit in with the car’s the low-dropping front.
The Centodieci also has new very narrow headlamps with integrated LED daytime running lights and five round air inserts to ensure sufficient air intake for its 16-cylinder engine.
Bugatti Centodieci has an 8.0-liter W16 engine which produces 1,600 horsepower and can accelerate from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds. The company has limited the top speed electronically to 236 mph (380 kmph).
“Transporting this classic look into the new millennium without copying it was technically complex, to say the least. We had to create a new way of combining the complex aerothermal requirements of the underlying Chiron technology with a completely different aesthetic appearance.” Bugatti head designer Achim Anscheidt said in a statement.
360-degree view of the Bugatti Centodieci:
The Centodieci is priced at $8.9 million and only 10 cars will be made and all of them are already sold. The first car will be delivered in 2022 since the company has other orders to fulfill currently the company is producing 40 Bugatti Divo and just one Bugatti La Voiture Noire, which is the world’s most expensive new car ever sold at $18.68 million.
Bugatti is sticking to its plans of introducing two new cars every year and now has Chiron, Centodieci, Divo and La Voiture Noire.
