The Bugatti Centodieci is in its final phase of development before production can kick-off. We’ve seen the hypercar being put through its paces at the Nardo high-speed test track in Italy. Recently, it also paid a visit to the wind tunnel.
According to Bugatti, the Centodieci is currently undergoing final aero tuning. Starting at 89 mph, the engineers use a standard setup to determine a benchmark figure for comparison with other Bugatti models. They run the various tests up to the test bench’s maximum speed when the wind envelops the bodywork at up to 186 mph before slipping off at the rear.
As you know, the Centodieci is a homage to the EB110 Super Sport. It was first presented at Pebble Beach in 2019. Only 10 cars are being built with a base price of $9 million each. Despite that hefty price tag, the car was sold out within hours.
The Centodieci is powered by the so-called ‘Thor’ engine. It’s an 8.0-liter W16 that makes no less than 1600 hp. The same engine powers the Chiron Super Sport.
