Watch Us Ride Shotgun In A Bugatti EB110 With Its Test Driver

Watch Us Ride Shotgun In A Bugatti EB110 With Its Test Driver Loris Bicocchi returned to the old Bugatti factory in Campogalliano, Italy where he helped develop the EB110 some 30 years ago. With rumors about a possible Bugatti EB110 tribute heating up the Internet, our colleagues at Motor1.com Italy got together with none other than Loris Bicocchi – the man directly involved in the development of the early 1990s hypercar. The best way to meet the man who also took part in the creation of the Veyron and Chiron was to head to the old Bugatti factory in Campogalliano near Modena, Italy. It’s the plant where roughly 139 examples of the V12 beast were made between 1991 and 1995.

In addition, Bugatti is echoing its recent history with an exclusive and extraordinary small series. “With the Centodieci , we pay homage to the EB110 “We are proud of our long Bugatti history, of which the EB110 is very much a part. That’s why we’re celebrating a reinterpretation of this extraordinary

The new Bugatti Centodieci debuted at Pebble Beach, and it's celebrating the EB110, the company's iconic supercar born in the early 90s. The Centodieci ’s design is unmistakably that of other modern Bugatti ’s, but it’s easy to spot the EB110’s influence.

Bugatti is paying homage to two milestones with the creation of the special-series Centodieci (Italian for 110) —1991’s historic EB110 (which was created to commemorate the 110th anniversary of founder Ettore Bugatti’s birth) and the 110th anniversary of the start of operation for the company he founded, Automobiles Ettore Bugatti.

Bugatti Centodieci Debuts Today: See The Livestream Here

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.

The Centodieci continues Bugatti ’s successful 110-year course of exceptional design and performance, while reviving the memory of the brand’s recent history. Inspired by the historical model, the Centodieci pushes all boundaries of imagination with its breathtaking performance and pioneering

“With the Centodieci, we pay homage to the EB110 super sports car which was built in the 1990s and is very much a part of our tradition-steeped history,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti. “With the EB110, Bugatti catapulted itself to the top of the automotive world once again after 1956 with a new model.”

The Centodieci design is reminiscent of the EB110, taking the then ground-breaking shape and technology and bringing it to an automotive world that has evolved so quickly in the nearly three decades since, making it sportier than Bugatti’s latest offerings, the Chiron and Divo, and more extreme and elegant than Bugatti’s La Voiture Noire.

“We faced a number of technical challenges in terms of the development and design of the Centodieci,” says Achim Anscheidt, Head Designer at Bugatti. “The challenge was not to allow oneself to 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.”

This is the brand new Bugatti Centodieci and the very first opportunity to see it in person at the world debut! As Bugatti themselves now celebrate their 110th anniversary year, the new car is presented based on the chassis of the Bugatti Chiron but with bespoke bodywork paying tribute to the EB110.

The look had to evolve dramatically — The EB110 was very flat, wedge-shaped and almost 2-dimensional, which what was believed to represent aerodynamic sportiness at the time.

“Transporting this classic look into the new millennium without copying it was technically complex, to say the least,” explains Anscheidt. “We had to create a new way of combining the complex aerothermal requirements of the underlying Chiron technology with a completely different aesthetic appearance.”

The flat signature radiator opening (which has grown substantially in prominence since the tiny opening of the EB110, but has been scaled back somewhat from those of recent Bugatti models) shows its depth in side view, and is blended together with a deep-seated spoiler and 3-section air intakes to create a very low nose.

The headlights provided another technology leap forward, with slit-like composite elements taking advantage of modern lighting technology to replace the EB110’s covered round headlamps without modifying the shape of the hood and bezels too dramatically.

Bugatti Centodieci, a 1577-HP Hypercar, Revealed at Pebble Beach Inspired by the EB110, limited to 10 copies, priced starting above $8 million, all sold. Bugatti's newest limited-edition hypercar, the Centodieci, gets unique bodywork and luxury features to make it even more exclusive than other Bugattis. Although its top speed is 25 mph less than the Chiron's, its 1577-hp quad-turbo W-16 ensures it's the quickest-accelerating Bugatti to date. The Centodieci made its debut at Pebble Beach in the leadup to the Concours d'Elegance. Automakers often turn to past glories to draw inspiration for new models.

The profile blends the classic Italian wedge of the EB110 (where the movement of body lines appears to come from the rear wheels to the front in a great “leap forward”) with the C-curve of the B-pillars in recent cars, though the curvature has been squared off behind five circular openings that provided engine cooling in the EB110.

The rear is also a blend of old and new, with the now full-width taillight element broken off into sections to harken to the EB110’s fascia that housed a series of engine thermal openings housed between taillights at the corners. Like on the EB110, the rear wing is fixed in place (recent Bugattis have deployable rear wings that also act as air brakes to enhance stopping).

As in the EB110, the Centodieci’s engine is housed under a clear panel, but the powerplant is the thoroughly modern 1600-hp 8.0-litre quad-turbo W-16, which came into use on EB110’s successor, the Veyron. Zero to 100 km/h takes a reported 2.4 seconds, 200 km/h is reached in 6.1 seconds and 300 km/h comes around in 13.1. Top speed is electronically limited to 380 km/h.

Bugatti will call the car “ Centodieci ”, or “110” if you happen to speak Italian. That celebrates three things all at once: the 110th anniversary of The styling of Centodieci is unmistakably an homage to the EB110 though. At the front you’ll spot a smaller Bugatti horseshoe — not quite EB110-sized, but

“It’s not just the top speed that makes a hyper sports car,” says Winkelmann. “With the Centodieci, we once again demonstrate that design, quality and performance are just as important.”

And though the Centodieci is introduced in stark white (in sharp contrast to the La Voiture Noire, which was utterly black), customers will be allowed to choose whatever colour they choose (presumably even the classic Bugatti blue).

Only 10 cars will be handcrafted in Molsheim, France (and yes, they’re all spoken for) to be delivered over the coming two years at a cost of €8 million each (about $11.8 million Canadian).
