The Bugatti Centodieci is Ready for Production after hefty testing of 31,000 miles. Well, will any of the 10 Centodieci customers put 31,000 miles on this $8.8 Million hyper-car? The answer is likely a clear no when looking back at the history of such limited-production beauties. This car pays homage to the wildest supercars of the 1990s, the Quad-Turbocharged EB110.
With over 50,000 hard-earned kilometres, Bugatti is set to start producing its Centodieci Special Edition. All that testing with a “White Prototype” Centodieci endured testing in every possible driving condition, including high-speed runs, handling routes, circuits, highways, and inner-city traffic to ensure that it can handle grand touring without a blip.
To mark the occasion of ending the testing phase, Bugatti released 10 photos of the well-tested Centodieci test car. This looks similar to the white car that debuted at Pebble Beach in 2019, but in doubt, we are sure that this is the same prototype that we saw lapping the Nürburgring about a year ago. This car has been spotted several times, once in a freezer, a desert and a wind tunnel but now its journey ended at the Legendary Nardo test track in Italy.
Steffen Leicht, Bugatti’s head of endurance testing said, “With its high-speed circuit and handling course, the Nardo test centre provides the ideal conditions for intensive endurance tests.” Stress testing the Centodieci a 745 miles per day on the sprawling track.
“The Centodieci is deliberately driven to its limits to guarantee reliable handling at the highest level, even in extreme situations,” said Carl Heilenkötter, Bugatti’s technical project manager. “Even though most cars never enter this range, it is nonetheless tested. This is the philosophy of the brand and that is why we put such a huge amount of effort into all this testing. Bugatti is committed to the highest quality standards, durability, and customer satisfaction.”
Engine, Top-Speed & 0-60
The tests included sprints up to the electronically limited top speed of 236 mph, which is a bummer when compared to the Chiron‘s. Although this is a Homage to EB110, underneath this Centodieci is a Chiron. The power comes from a W16 engine pumping out 1,600 hp for all four wheels and 0-60 mph in 2.3 seconds.
After the final assessment of the trials, Bugatti will begin deliveries of the 10 production models without any delays. With a price tag of a whopping $8.8 Million, this would be in owners’ hands by the end of 2022.
