This is Bugatti's most powerful hypercar yet.
Cast your mind back to 2019, and you may remember when Bugatti unveiled the one-off La Voiture Noire at Geneva to celebrate the company's 110th anniversary. Valued at a staggering $18 million, the La Voiture Noire is a modern-day tribute to the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic. Teaser images on social media suggest that Bugatti will present the final production version on May 31.
This isn't the only new Bugatti hypercar that will be unleashed soon, however. In 2019, Bugatti also presented the Centodieci, a limited-edition version of the Chiron with a bespoke body inspired by the EB110.
As Bugatti applies the finishing touches and finetunes the chassis, our spies have spotted a working prototype of the Centodieci carving up the Nurburgring.
This pre-prototype has retained the same design cues as the concept that debuted at Pebble Beach back in 2019. At the front, the Centodieci's smaller horseshoe grille, low-slung front spoiler, and horizontal slats on the bumper pay homage to the EB110, combined with ultra-slim LED headlights. Other design elements inspired by the EB110 include a wraparound windshield, a fixed rear wing, and five round side air vents. Like the La Voiture Noire, the Centodieci was also built to commemorate Bugatti's 110th anniversary - Centodieci is Italian for "110."
Based on the Chiron, the Centodieci is Bugatti's most powerful hypercar yet with an 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine uprated to 1,578 horsepower and 1,180 lb-ft of torque, making it even more potent than the record-breaking Chiron Super Sport 300+, Chiron Pur Sport, and Divo.
Production of the Centodieci is limited to just ten units, and one of them was allegedly bought by soccer star Cristiano Ronaldo. Despite costing $9 million, the Centodieci is completely sold out. Deliveries of Bugatti's modern-day EB110 will start in 2022, so we're expecting the final production model to be revealed in a few months after the La Voiture Noire.
