Bugatti Centodieci Debuts as Incredible Modern Take on EB110

Bugatti Centodieci the EB110 gets a 2019 makeover $8.9M Bugatti Centodieci is Chiron's tribute to EB110 and you can't have one

At the rear, the look is very different from the 1990s supercar. Just 128 EB110 and EB110SS models were produced between 1991 and 1995 in an extraordinary factory built by Artioli in Campogalliano, Italy. It was an attempt to revive the Bugatti brand, which had been dormant since the 1950s. The front of the Centodieci drops very low.

- Only 10 will ever be made. The prototype for the EB110 was designed by Carlo Gandini, the same man who designed the Lamborghini Countach.

After a roughly 40-year hiatus, the Bugatti EB110 put the French brand back among the automotive elite when it was introduced in 1990. One thing's for sure: the Centodieci won't back down from the La Voiture Noir in the unlikely event both cars find themselves at the dragstrip (or even just at the next set of traffic lights).

Rather than build a vehicle that simply aped the EB110, Bugatti started with the Chiron and adapted its shapes and forms to recall the EB110. The Veryon was offered from 2005 to 2015, with various changes and improvements made throughout its life. Both cars were created to be astonishingly fast but comfortable and easy to drive, thanks to massive turbocharged 16-cylinder engines mounted behind the two seats. The Bugatti Chiron costs more than $3 million.

According to the company, the Centodieci's reduced mass and extra power give it punchier acceleration at higher speeds, and helps to improve the car's handling. Artioli presented the super sports vehicle EB 110 to the public on Ettore Bugatti's 110th birthday - hence the type designation: EB for Ettore Bugatti, 110 for his 110th birthday. It started at nearly $6 million and, Bugatti promised, only 40 would be made. It was a crucial interim step for the production facility that was newly founded in Molsheim in 1998, taking Bugatti back to its roots in France, and the first hyper sports auto of modern times - the Veyron.

All three of these new Bugatti models are substantially similar, in terms of their underlying engineering, to the Chiron. The 8.0-liter W-16 engine makes 1,577 hp at 7,000 rpm, 97 more than the Chiron.

The performance tweaks don't stop there as the Centodieci weighs 44 lbs (20 kg) less than the Chiron. It commands an electronically limited top speed of 380 kmph.

The Centodieci - which translates to 110 in Italian - has several design elements which are a direct nod to the EB110.

"Transporting this classic look into the new millennium without copying it was technically complex, to say the least", said Bugatti designer Achim Anscheidt. A point of contention in The Drive office were the new LED headlamps. Instead of the Chiron's swooping C-shaped lines around the big side vents, the Centodieci has openings with straight edges and a cluster of round holes. Credit also goes to the rear diffuser and permanent rear wing, the latter of which is mechanically adjustable to deliver the ideal angle of inclination for each speed. Downforce is supported by the aerodynamic tailgate and a laminar flow-optimised rear window. Customers were able to order their Centodieci in, literally, any color they like.

All 10 of the supercars have already been pre-sold.
