Bugatti is back in force. The approximately AU$11.9 million, 1,600hp Bugatti Centodieci is about to hit the road.

Originally announced in 2019 to celebrate the classic car brand’s 110th anniversary, the first of ten production models was unveiled this week at the Bugatti factory in Molsheim, France.

Aptly named Centodieci, which means 110 in Italian, the new hypercar is a tribute to Bugatti’s 1991 EB110, considered the fastest and most extraordinary supercar of its time.

The ten limited edition vehicles stand out for their flawless elegance and sculptural beauty, making the Centodieci a true work of tangible art.

During the production of the bodied Centodieci, the powerful machine was put to the test. In two years of development, the hypercar endured 50,000 kilometers of road and track testing, surviving temperatures of minus 20°C and up to 45°C.

What he produced was a machine with monstrous statistics. Powered by a quad-turbocharged eight-litre W16 engine, the Centodieci delivers a staggering 1,600hp, 97hp more than the Bugatti Chiron, and hits a redline of 7,000rpm.

It does 0-100 km/h in just 2.4 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 6.1 seconds and will reach a top speed of 380 km/h.

It arrives in a blue colorway reminiscent of the original EB110 paired with EB110 Sport Silver wheels, with its owner also owning an original EB110 GT finished in the same iconic color.

The striking angular bodywork is also a throwback to the 1990s EB110 supercar, the only car built by the automaker while Italian businessman Romano Artioli was chairman.

Inside, the Centodieci’s homage to the EB110 continues with heritage details given a modern hypercar twist.

A testament to Bugatti’s craftsmanship, the Centodieci’s interior takes around 16 weeks to complete with an entire day devoted to the seats alone.

When a Bugatti arrives, it always attracts the attention of the automotive world. Following the global unveiling during Monterey Car Week in California in 2019, the ten highly exclusive Centodieci were almost immediately considered, with soccer megastar Cristiano Ronaldo being one of the few.

Christophe Piochon, President of Bugatti Automobiles, said the Centodieci continues Bugatti’s heritage of producing exceptional cars.

At Bugatti in Molsheim, we are proud to have completed and delivered the very first Centodieci.

The Centodieci builds on Ettore Bugatti’s successful lineage of 110 years of exceptional design and performance, while reviving the memory of the brand’s recent history.

After two years of relentless development, we have refined the Centodieci to the level that our customers expect from all Bugatti models.
