The ten happy customers of the Bugatti Centodieci will soon be able to take delivery of their few-offs. Bugatti has just announced the manufacture of a first prototype for series production.
Presented in 2019 at Pebble Beach, the Bugatti Centodieci is, as the name suggests, a tribute to the legendary Bugatti EB110 released in 1991, while celebrating the 110 years of the brand.
Marketed at only ten copies at the unit price of 8 million euros, the Bugatti Centodieci order book was quickly filled, and these ten happy customers, among whom we find footballer Cristiano Ronaldo, will soon have the privilege of taking delivery of their hyper sports car.
Bugatti Centodieci (2022): a prototype to prepare for series production
Indeed, after more than a year of construction and simulation, the Bugatti teams have developed the first prototype of the Bugatti Centodieci, which is preparing for series production: ” Each newly developed vehicle is a huge challenge, as we are developing a small series which must simultaneously meet all the quality and safety standards of a large series and even exceed them. », According to André Kullig, Technical Project Director for the One and Few-Off projects at Bugatti.
Engineers optimize the aerodynamics, engine and gearbox, while the design team finalizes the final styling elements, to make the body look perfect from all angles and all light conditions. The prototype, which so far takes the form of a rolling chassis, made its first laps on the Molsheim test white, to control all aspects of its powertrain.

And Bugatti has not done things by halves, since it is their most powerful production model ever produced: based on the architecture of the Chiron, the Centodieci borrows its W16 quadriturbo of 8.0 liters, which like the EB 110, is presented behind a transparent glass surface. Its power is now increased to 1,600 horses, allowing him to swallow the 0 to 100 km / h in 2.4 seconds, for a maximum speed limited to 380 km / h.
Once the final adjustments on the test bench have been made, the Bugatti Centodieci will also undergo a series of dynamic tests, in order to carry out the final adjustments to the chassis. It should be ready for the first deliveries scheduled for next year.
