Bugatti has officially unveiled the first prototype for its highly anticipated Bugatti Centodieci which reportedly costs approximately $12.5 million USD (£9 million GBP) and is a limited-edition tribute to the iconic Bugatti EB110.
The Centodieci itself is based on the Bugatti Chiron and although it has reached the prototype stage, there is still a lot of development work to be done. The supercar was first revealed at the 2019 Monterey Car Week and will only be roll out next year 2022.
The Centodieci (110 in Italia) is expected to be extremely powerful with the W-16 tuned to produce 1,577hl-97hp more than the Chiron. With all these additions and changes, Bugatti is concerned that it might potentially interfere with the cooling for the 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine. There is also concern that the new fixed rear wing feature and new lighting elements could affect the aerodynamics and regulatory compliance, respectively.
Bugatti’s technical project manager for one-offs said, “In the next few months, in addition to building the exterior and running more advanced simulations in the wind tunnel, we’re very much looking forward to going out on the test track to start tuning the chassis.”
