First 1,600HP Bugatti Centodieci Rolls Off the Factory Floor

Bugatti is back with a bang. The approximately A$11.9 million, 1,600hp Bugatti Centodieci is about to hit the roads.

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

Aptly named the Centodieci, which is Italian for 110, 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 are distinguished by their perfect elegance and sculptural beauty, making the Centodieci a true, tangible work of art.

During the production of the coachbuilt Centodieci, the powerful machine was put through its paces. Over two years of development, the hypercar endured 50,000 kilometres on road and track testing, surviving chilling minus 20C degrees and up to 45C degrees.

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

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

It arrives in a blue colourway reminiscent of the original EB110 paired with EB110 Sport Silver wheels with its owner also possessing an original EB110 GT finished in the same iconic colouring.

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

Inside, the Centodieci’s tribute to the EB110 continues with heritage details receiving a modern hypercar touch.

The quilted chessboard-like pattern found on the seats, roof liner, door panels, centre console and floormats was first established in the EB110 but elevated here with a bespoke application

A testament to Bugatti’s craftsmanship, the Centodieci’s interior takes around 16 weeks to complete with a full day spent on the seats alone.

When a Bugatti arrives it still claims the attention of the car world. After the global unveiling at California’s Monterey Car Week in 2019, all ten of the highly-exclusive Centodieci’s were almost immediately accounted for with soccer megastar Cristiano Ronaldo rumoured to be one of the few.

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

We at Bugatti in Molsheim are proud to have completed and delivered the very first Centodieci.

The Centodieci builds upon Ettore Bugatti’s successful 110-year lineage 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 standard our customers expect of all Bugatti models.
