Bugatti’s Centodieci is everything you’d expect from the luxury French brand – it can hit 380kmh, has 1,600hp, and it’s so exclusive only 10 cars will be made.
So if you are one of the lucky 10 buyers out there, you’ll be pleased to know Bugatti has been testing the Centodieci for 50,000km before it even goes into production.
That’s 1200km a day around Italy’s famed Nardò track in the Puglia region. It’s considered the fastest automotive circuit in the world.
Three drivers work on a rotation around the clock to test every single aspect of the Centodieci.
This included sprints up to the hypercar’s electronically limited top speed of 380kmh, which is lower than the 420kmh limit given to the Chiron – but still plenty.
The intensive Bugatti Centodieci testing
“The Centodieci is deliberately driven to its limits in order to guarantee reliable handling at the highest level, even in extreme situations. Even though most cars never enter this range, it is nonetheless tested,” says Carl Heilenkötter – project manager responsible for one-off and few-off projects at Bugatti.
“This is the philosophy of the brand and that is why we put such a huge amount of effort into all this testing. Bugatti is committed to the highest quality standards, durability, and customer satisfaction.”
Once all are made, Bugatti will begin deliveries of the 10 production models.
The Bugatti Centodieci body styling pays tribute to the brand’s EB110 from the ’90s and is powered by a W16 engine that produces 1,600 hp.
Deliveries should arrive at the back-end of 2022.
