Celebrating an Icon
With the Centodieci, Bugatti pays tribute to an extraordinary part of its long and rich history: the EB110. Inspired by the legendary supercar of the 1990s, Bugatti once again pushes the boundaries of design, technology and performance with this exclusive and magnificent small series. Limited to ten units, the Centodieci is not only a homage to and modern reinterpretation of the EB110, but it’s also a fascinating manifesto connected with the brand values of excellence, courage and dedication.
Back in 1991 the EB110 catapulted Bugatti to the pinnacle of the automotive world once again after a hiatus of over three decades. During this lapse Bugatti lived on in the hearts and memories of many enthusiasts, collectors and connoisseurs. Romano Artioli was one of them. In 1987, this Italian entrepreneur and Bugatti collector bought the rights of the brand with one strong commitment: to build the best and fastest supercar in the world, and put Bugatti back where it belonged and where it still is today.
Echoes of the Future
One of the main challenges of the Bugatti design team was not to be captivated too much by the design of the historic vehicle and work solely in retrospect, but to create a modern interpretation of the shapes and technology of that time. The result is simply stunning: even sportier and more extreme than the Chiron and Divo, yet elegant and timeless like the La Voiture Noire, the Centodieci is a one-of-a-kind Bugatti for the connoisseur.
Body and Soul
Bugatti designers and engineers faced several technical challenges during the development of the Centodieci. Transporting the classic look of a supercar of the late 1980s into the new millennium and respecting its spirit without copying was technically complex, to say the least. Additionally, the completely different aesthetic appearance had to fit in perfect harmony with the aerodynamic and thermal requirements of the potent 16-cylinder power train, now with an impressive output of 1.600 HP.
