Bugatti has shown the first client copy of the Centodieci model, imitating the historic EB110. Finishing the hypercar took three years. Prototypes of the coupe traveled more than 50 thousand kilometers, they were tested by the heat in the Arizona desert and the cold in a special climate chamber. For each of the ten copies, buyers paid at least eight million euros.
The Bugatti Centodieci coupe was presented at Monterey Car Week in California three years ago. But only now the French are ready to hand over the first copy of the model to the client. The hypercar was brought in a wind tunnel, and tested by cold and heat at temperatures from -20 to +45 degrees Celsius. The prototype of the two-door in total wound more than 50,000 test kilometers. The Centodieci is designed with references to the EB110, and the debut two-door is also painted in classic colors.
For the body, the buyer chose a blue Bugatti Bleu paint, and for the wheels — a silver color EB110 Silver. The fact is that in his collection there is already an original “one hundred and tenth”, and it is in this color scheme. The interior decoration also imitates the historical ancestor. For example, there is a quilted pattern in the form of a chessboard on the seats, doors, ceiling, and rugs. The lining and assembly of such a cabin take 16 weeks, including one day spent on a thorough quality check of the stitching of the seats.
The hypercar got the W16 8.0 engine with four turbochargers from the usual Chiron, boosted from 1500 to 1600 horsepower. Acceleration to a hundred at Centodieci takes 2.4 seconds instead of 2.5 — but it also helped to reduce the weight by 20 kilograms. From a standstill to 200 kilometers per hour, the hypercar accelerates in 6.1 seconds, to 300 — in 13.1. The maximum speed is limited to 320 kilometers per hour. The circulation of Centodieci will be ten copies, however, all of them have already been sold out. The price is eight million euros.
