It’s been almost four years since Bugatti first unveiled the $ 8.9 million Centodici, and now the first customer example is ready for delivery.
Only 10 examples will be made at the Bugatti plant in Molsheim, France, where the first customer examples were shown on Tuesday.
The car is decorated in a color called EB110 Blue, a variant of blue that serves as the hero color for the original EB110 and was even used in the Italian factory line where the EB110 was manufactured. In combination with the blue, silver wheels, the same configuration is already in an EB110 in the owner of this Centodic.
Centodieci’s interior design is inspired by the EB110, especially the Super Sport version. Callbacks include a chessboard upholstery pattern and an embossed “EB” logo on the headrest. The process of creating a Centodici interior takes about 16 weeks to complete, with only one full day for seats.
The Centodieci was unveiled at the EB110 celebration in 2019 (Centodieci is Italian for “110”), and the car is the latest in a growing line of modern coach-built specials based on the Bugatti Chiron, the latest to launch in 2018 with the Divo.
The Centodic is powered by Bugatti’s well-known 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16. Here the engine is tuned to deliver 1,577 hp or 97 hp more than the Chiron, and Bugatti claims that the car will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.4 seconds, 0-124 mph in 6.1 seconds and 0-186 mph. 13.1 seconds.
The maximum speed is controlled at 236 miles per hour, which is less than Chiran’s controlled maximum speed of 261 miles per hour. The fastest of the Chiron variants is the Chiron Super Sport 300+, which ran uninterrupted in 2019 at 304.773 mph. For security reasons, Bugatti controls the top speeds of the 300+ customer instances, but did not say ৷ The hat is
You might be wondering why it took four years for the Centodic’s first customer example to be completed when the car was built based on an existing model. Because Bugatti puts its coach-built cars through the same rigorous testing and evaluation program as its regular manufacturing vehicles. One of the toughest tests is running a high-speed endurance on the Nordo track in Italy. Here, a prototype is driven more than 31,000 miles, where stops are made only for refueling, technical testing and driver switching.
