The first of a total of ten Bugatti Centodieci supercars delivered to its new owners earlier this year. Following a long and complicated process of testing, preparation and assembly, one of the most expensive and most powerful products of the automotive industry is now circulating throughout Europe. And we mean this literally – this particular car was recently caught on camera in traffic.
youtuber 912fordgt was in the right place at the right time to film Centodieci’s first customer. The description of the video does not include any information regarding the location where the supercar was shot, but we did a little investigation and concluded that the video is from Croatia. As far as we know, recently the Supercar Owners Club had a meeting in Zagreb and Bugatti may participate in the event.
The Centodieci was released as a tribute to the Bugatti EB110 and the first examples delivered to customers were finished in the same blue as the EB110. This is a very traditional color combination for the French company and the owner of Centodieci also has the EB110 GT in the same color. The automaker has plans to assemble just 10 examples of the Centodieci and they’ve all been talked about. The Chiron-based supercar costs at least $8.8 million.
Speaking of the Chiron, the Centodieci isn’t just a model version of Molsheim. It’s about 44 pounds (20 kilograms) lighter, has a different suspension, and a more aggressive and efficient aerodynamic package. Underneath the sleek skin is Bugatti’s 8.0-liter W16 engine with a peak output of 1,600 horsepower (1,176 kilowatts). Acceleration from 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometers per hour) takes just 2.4 seconds.
We are thrilled to see such a rare and exotic supercar actually being ridden. We know the owners of the first Centodieci wouldn’t take it to the track very often, but at least they weren’t the type of collector who just kept their precious car in the garage.
