Bugatti EB110 Spiritual Successor Possibly Teased Under Sheet

Bugatti EB110 Spiritual Successor Possibly Teased Under Sheet The silhouette of this car at least matches up with the EB110. As the rumors mount that Bugatti intends to debut a spiritual successor to the EB110 during Monterey Car Week, the hypercar maker is doing very little to tamper down our suspicion. In a new video that largely focuses on putting EB110 race cars through their paces on the track, there's a brief view of what appears to be alleged new model under a sheet. The vehicle under the translucent sheet shows some of the hallmarks of the original EB110's design. Most notably, you can spot the circular inlets behind the side windows.

After a whole bunch of rumors, it's now official: Bugatti has come to Monterey Car Week with a new car, and it's definitely carrying shades of the automaker's first modern supercar, the EB110.

Bugatti on Friday unveiled the Centodieci at Monterey Car Week. Meant to be a 21st-century reimagining of the EB110, the car is based on the Chiron, just like last year's Monterey car, the Divo. However, it's not a total copycat; instead, it takes a number of the ideas present in the EB110's styling and adapts it in a far more modern way.

Breaking: Bugatti EB110 Revival Confirmed For August 16 Reveal

Breaking: Bugatti EB110 Revival Confirmed For August 16 Reveal Bugatti will livestream the event. Well, we can put the rumors to rest. After several months of speculation, rumors, and a bit of hope, Bugatti has confirmed it will unveil the EB110 successor later this week at Pebble Beach. Bugatti made the announcement with the revealing teaser above that does a poor job of hiding its intentions. Bugatti will livestream the unveiling Friday, August 16, at 11:20 a.m. PDT/8:20 pm CEST during The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering. The news of a Bugatti EB110 successor shouldn't be a surprise. The automaker has been everything but coy about its plans.

"The challenge was not to allow oneself 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," said Achim Anscheidt, Bugatti's head designer, in a statement. "Transporting this classic look into the new millennium without copying it was technically complex, to say the least."

The front end features a long, drooping nose, just like the EB110, and it's capped off at a much smaller version of the arch-shaped radiator grille that's been a staple of every new Bugatti. The headlights are impossibly thin, with "eyelash" cutouts that head up the fenders. The wheels fit into the wells with some serious precision.

Bugatti Teases EB110 Tribute Car That Will Premiere at Pebble Beach

Bugatti Teases EB110 Tribute Car That Will Premiere at Pebble Beach But will it have scissor doors? Bugatti will unveil a new car at Pebble Beach patterned after the EB110. Built between 1991 and 1995, the EB110 was the world's fastest production car. We'll have full details on the new car on Friday. On Friday, Bugatti will scatter foam blocks and plastic shards across the Pebble Beach lawn to tempt customers away from the Acura stand. More likely, it will show a physical car that pays tribute to the 1990s EB110. Judging by Bugatti's teaser images and how millionaires salivate over abstract art installations, either guess would be appropriate.

On the side, the Chiron's C-shaped body flourish is gone, and in its place is a far more angular construction, with sharp lines on the door leading to five round air inlets that can be seen on EB110 variants. Out back, things take a turn for the modern, with high-mounted taillight elements spanning the width of the body, just below a honkin' rear wing and just above a pair of vertically mounted tailpipes integrated into the diffuser assembly. It's wild, to say the least.

Under the engine cover is the same 8.0-liter, quad-turbo W16 as the Chiron, but it's had the wick turned up to produce 1,600 horsepower. It'll reach 62 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds, doubling its velocity to 124 mph in 6.1 seconds. It only takes 13.1 seconds to reach 186 mph, which is positively bonkers. It'll hit 236 mph before running into the electronic limiter. The automaker claims it's some 44 pounds lighter than the Chiron, thanks in part to items like a lightweight windshield wiper and various carbon components.

Bugatti Centodieci Debuts Today: See The Livestream Here The EB110 is back, at least in spirit. Yes, Bugatti is well aware images of its new hypercar have escaped onto the Internet after some of our colleagues decided to break the embargo, but the Molsheim company is sticking to its plan to host a livestream of the event from The Quail. Even though the cat is pretty much out of the bag, a new Bugatti doesn’t come so often, therefore we’re still giddy with excitement to see the EB110 homage in full-resolution glory.

It's a busy look, but the EB110 elements are pretty easily picked out.

Only 10 very lucky owners will be able to pick one up, but Bugatti was quick to note that it will allow owners to have the cars painted in whatever color they choose. Deliveries are expected to begin in about two years' time, and each Centodieci will cost 8 million euro (about $8.9 million) before tax.
