France lost their World Cup final on penalties to Argentina last night, but the country has plenty of other accomplishments to be proud of. Bugatti, one of the world’s most exclusive and exotic automakers, is based in Molsheim, Alsace, in France, and makes masterpieces like the Centodieci. Created as a modern tribute to the EB110, the model is now out of production as the last example has been assembled and shipped to its new owner.
Concluding “an important chapter in the modern era of Bugatti car building”, the final Centodieci features a Quartz White exterior with black carbon underbody coating plus a matt black grille. The visual connection between the modern supercar and its predecessors is made by light blue brake calipers and the Bugatti logo on the rear wing. More exposure to this color is on the inside where the seats, roof lining, door panels, center console and floor mats are all finished in the same color.
“Centodieci brings together all the components of the Bugatti brand into one extraordinary package: rarity, innovation, heritage, craftsmanship and unparalleled performance,” commented Christophe Piochon, President of Bugatti Automobiles. “All ten of the limited production were so sought after by our customers that they sold out before Centodieci was even officially revealed.”
Centodieci is amazing. The vintage-looking exterior is complemented by Bugatti’s now-iconic W16 8.0-liter quad-turbo engine, producing 1,600 horsepower in this application. This allows the supercar to reach 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) from a standstill in just 2.4 seconds, while its top speed is 236 mph (380 kph).
Now that 10 examples of the Centodieci are complete, Bugatti will focus on assembling the remaining 100 Chiron models. The Bugatti Atelier in Molsheim will also work on 99 Mistrals, followed by the remaining 40 Bolide units. All of the above models have a sold out status.
