Bugatti chose today’s Quail Motorsports Gathering at Monterey Car Week to take the wraps off its latest hypercar, the Centodieci.
The Centodieci pays homage to the Bugatti EB110 built in the 1990s. “With the Centodieci, we pay homage to the EB110 super sports car which was built in the 1990s and is very much a part of our tradition-steeped history,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti. “With the EB110, Bugatti catapulted itself to the top of the automotive world once again after 1956 with a new model.”
“The challenge was not to allow oneself to be captivated too much by the design of the historic vehicle and work solely in retrospect, but instead to create a modern interpretation of the shape and technology of that time,” says Achim Anscheidt, Head Designer at Bugatti.
Only 10 EB110 tribute Centodiecis will be built, and all of them are already sold at €8,000,000 (plus VAT) – that’s US$8.8 million apiece.
