Bugatti Centodieci at Pebble Beach Car Show 2019
Exceptional design and vast power have been the hallmark features of Bugatti vehicles for around 110 years.
The French manufacturer of hyper sports cars now consistently pursues this path further with the new special-edition Centodieci.
In addition, Bugatti is echoing its recent history with an exclusive and extraordinary small series.
There are many areas in which the new special-edition Bugatti Centodieci echoes the former super sports car of the 1990s.
“The challenge was not to allow oneself to be captivated too much by the design of the historic vehicle and work solely in retrospect, but instead to create a modern interpretation of the shape and technology of that time,” says Achim Anscheidt, Head Designer at Bugatti.
Even sportier and more extreme than the Bugatti Chiron and Divo hyper sports cars, yet elegant and timeless like the La Voiture Noire, it is a one-of-a-kind Bugatti for the enthusiast.
The flat, horseshoe-shaped radiator at the front reveals its depth only from the side view, with the newly developed, deep-seated front spoiler and the three-section air intakes providing a perfect match.
The front of the Centodieci drops very low.
The iconic Bugatti horseshoe has been reduced accordingly, while the Bugatti logo Macaron sits on the hood, which is interrupted at the centre by a black element.
Naturally, customers can have their special-edition Centodieci painted in the Bugatti colour of their choice.
The small series, limited to ten vehicles (and already sold out) and handcrafted in Molsheim, France, will be delivered in two years at unit prices starting at EUR 8 million plus VAT.
After its short period in Italy, Bugatti has now been back at its old headquarters in Molsheim, France, for almost 20 years.
This is where Ettore Bugatti produced the very first vehicles that bore his name at the end of 1909.
