The 1600-horsepower Bugatti Centodieci is approaching production time. The hypercar was spotted in the final trials.
In 2019 in Geneva, Bugatti unveiled a unique car, La Voiture Noire, built in honor of the company’s 110th anniversary. La Voiture Noire, valued at a staggering $ 18 million, is a modern tribute to the legendary Type 57 SC Atlantic. Social media teaser images suggest Bugatti will unveil the final production version of this vehicle on May 31, 2021.
However, this is not the only new Bugatti hypercar to be launched soon. In 2019, Bugatti also introduced the Centodieci, a limited edition Chiron with a unique body inspired by the EB110. While Bugatti is putting in the finishing touches and fine-tuning the chassis, spies spotted a working prototype of the Centodieci driving through the Nürburgring.
The prototype retains the same design elements as the concept that debuted at Pebble Beach in 2019. At the front, a small horseshoe-shaped Centodieci grille, a low splitter and horizontal bumper strips are combined with ultra-slim LED headlights. Other design elements inspired by the EB110 include a circular windshield, a fixed rear wing and five circular side vents. Like La Voiture Noire, the Centodieci is built to celebrate Bugatti’s 110th anniversary (Centodieci means 110 in Italian).
The Chiron-based Bugatti Centodieci is the most powerful Bugatti hypercar ever, with an 8.0-liter W16 four-cylinder engine delivering 1,578 horsepower and 1,600 Nm of torque, making it even more powerful than the record-breaking Chiron Super Sport 300+, Chiron Pur Sport and Divo.
Production of the Centodieci will be limited to just ten copies, one of which was allegedly bought by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite the fact that Centodieci costs $ 9 million, the entire edition is already completely sold out. Deliveries of the modern EB110 from Bugatti will begin in 2022, so the final production model is expected to be unveiled a few months after La Voiture Noire.
