The Bugatti Centodieci looks frighteningly fast around the Nurburgring.
Just last week, we got a closer look at the limited-production Bugatti Centodieci as our spies spotted a prototype being thrashed around the Nurburgring. As one of the world's most demanding race tracks, the Nurburgring is the ultimate proving ground, allowing Bugatti to test a car's dynamics and finetune the chassis before customer deliveries begin.
YouTuber Misha Charoudin was lucky enough to be taken for the world's first passenger ride around the Nurburgring in the Bugatti Centodieci. In a scenario most of us can only dream about, Misha could only choose one car for the high-speed, one-lap passenger ride: the Bugatti Centodieci, Divo, Chiron Pur Sport, or the record-smashing Chiron Super Sport 300+.
Since the Super Sport 300+ was designed for straight-line speed, it isn't well suited to the racing circuit's challenging corners. The Chiron Pur Sport, on the other hand, is more agile, making it the most track-focused Chiron yet. In the end, Charoudin chose the Centodieci because it's more exclusive and expensive.
We're glad he chose it because this is the first time we've seen the Centodieci in action. In the video, we get to ride onboard with Charoudin , who looks understandably nervous as the test driver pushes the hypercar to its limits, and it looks frighteningly fast. On a high-speed straight, the Centodieci hits 316 km/h (196 mph) without breaking a sweat. This isn't pushing it to its limit either, as Bugatti claims the Centodieci will hit a top speed of 236 mph.
The acceleration was smooth and the car gripped the track incredibly well considering how heavy it is (the Centodieci is only 44 pounds lighter than the Chiron, with a curb weight of 4,356 lbs), so the ten people who are lucky enough to secure an order will be able to chuck it around corners with confidence.
We're not surprised the Centodieci was capable of such insane speeds at the Nurburgring. With its 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 generating 1,578 hp and 1,180 lb-ft , the Centodieci is the most powerful version of the Chriron yet. It's also one of the rarest and most expensive, with production limited to just ten units each costing $9 million thanks to its bespoke styling that pays homage to the Bugatti EB110 supercar from the 1990s. Every example has been sold, and one of them will reportedly be delivered to Cristiano Ronaldo.
