Bugatti debuted with the "superlimited" Centodieci model back in 2019. However, deliveries will not start until next year, because the French manufacturer continues to test its new hypercar.
According to Vrele Gume, the last test was done this summer in America, where a team of 27 engineers along with Centodieci enjoyed dealing with several other Bugatti, three Chirona Pur Sports and four Chirona Super Sports, in warm weather in the southwest. Centodieci has gone through the same tests as other hypercars, although the company plans to produce only 10 units, at a cost of 8m euros each. What has been done is a couple of additional suction openings near the oil cooler, in order to keep the temperature of the machine under control.
"The newly developed Centodiecia body, the aerodynamic changes and the glass engine cover, mean that the thermal behavior is quite different, especially when it's 45 degrees Celsius outside," says Andre Kulig, technical project manager at Bugatti. Of course, the engine is a quad-turbo W16 with a displacement of 8.0 liters, which produces 1,600 horsepower, capable of launching a car up to 100 km / h in just 2.5 seconds. It accelerates to 300 km / h in just 13.1 seconds, while top speed is electronically limited to 380 km / h. Centodieci, which has several stylistic differences compared to Chiron, is a homage to the cult EB110 from the nineties.
Bugatti is now facing the novice's behavior testing at high speeds. The test of endurance at high temperatures has passed, and now 30,000 kilometers of driving in Europe is ahead. When it's all over Centodieci will be ready for sale.
