“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,” President of Bugatti Stephan Winkelmann said in a prepared statement.
The iconic Bugatti horseshoe was reduced in size and the logo moved to the hood to fit the car’s low-dropping front.
The Centodieci can hit 62 mph in 2.4 seconds and has a top speed of 236 mph.
The supercar features narrow headlamps, integrated LED daytime running lights, and five round air inserts to allow for sufficient air intake for the 16-cylinder engine.
"We were stylistically free in the front and rear sections to pay respectful homage to the EB110 while at the same time transposing this appealing visual reminiscence into modern technology,” said Anscheidt.
The car was paint finished in white to contrast the black-on-black La Voiture Noire, Bugatti's latest one-off car. "Two completely opposing yet related forces, like yin and yang," said Winkelmann.
The Centodieci units will be hand-built in Molsheim, France.
Only ten units of the Centodieci, all of which have been claimed, will be made, and Bugatti will start delivering the car in two years. The car starts at €8 million pre-tax, or $8,882,792.
