Bugatti presented last Friday, August 16th, the new 'beast'. The Bugatti Centodieci pays tribute to the old Bugatti EB110, which dates back to 1991, with increasing power.
This super-sport of the French brand is based on the conventional Chiron car in the Ronaldo collection, but has become more exclusive. Limited to 10 units, all already booked and purchased, the car is priced at eight million euros, before tax.
The Bugatti EB 110 marked the 1990s and the Centodieci promises to mark the new 1920s. The French manufacturer's Volkswagen-owned super-sportsman had a four-turbocharged V12 engine and a carbon-fiber chassis. It was for some time the fastest car in the world, setting its mark at 351 kilometers. The tax could not differ further from the EB110.
The futuristic rear end adds personality to the new Bugatti model, implying that it is a state-of-the-art super sports car.
In mechanical terms, the Centodiece has a 8.0-liter W16 engine with four turbos, similar to the Chiron. However, the surprise comes on the road, as the tribute delivers a horsepower of 1,600 horsepower at 7,000 revolutions per minute, 100 more horses than Chiron.
Just as the EB110 was in its day, Centodieci is just as extreme and sporty for its time. Unique, elegant incomparable. #BUGATTI #Centodieci #BUGATTICentodieci # EB110 # BUGATTI110ans pic.twitter.com/tjT4j7jSxE

Thus, the new creation can go from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour (km / h) in 2.4 seconds, from 0 to 200 km / h in 6.1 seconds and from 0 to 300 km / h in 13.1 seconds. . Still, Bugatti decided to limit the car electronically to 380 km / h, 260 km / h above the maximum speed allowed in Portugal.
It is known that the only 10 copies will be delivered in the next two years and will be built in accordance with each customer's requirements. The super sports car employs a full carbon fiber chassis that is 20 pounds lighter than the Chiron, achieved through the use of innovative solutions.
A curious detail released by the manufacturer is the origin of the name of the two vehicles. The Bugatti EB110 was named after founder Ettore Bugatti in the year when it would be his own 110th birthday, born in 1881 and the sport was created in 1991. Bugatti Centodiece means 'one hundred and ten' in Italian, in celebration of the 110th anniversary of the brand's creation in 1909.
