There’s plenty of performance hypercars out there. But nothing has quite the swagger and style as a Bugatti. Now, after three years since it’s release, their latest creation is hitting production. Get ready for the Centrodieci.
Based on the Chiron, the Centrodieci hypercar is a coach-build from the automaker. Revealed three years ago, it’s been undergoing some rather extensive testing. The final test took place at the Nardo track in Italy, which includes 31,000 miles of test track for high speed endurance metrics. On this track, it reached top speeds of 236 mph while checking to ensure that all systems remained functional. Before that, it had undergone tests for hot-weather, wind-tunnel and live runs on the Nürburgring.
Spec-wise: The Centrodieci has an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine, capable of pushing an outstanding 1,577 horsepower (a little under 100 more than the base Chiron). With that, it can reach 0 to 62 mph in 2.4 seconds, 0 to 124 mph in 6.1 seconds, and 0 to 186 mph in 13.1 seconds. It has a top speed of 236 mph, which is actually about 25 lower than the base Chiron. If that’s what matters most, the Chiron Super Sport 300+ has the highest top speed, at 304 mph.
To be fair, it isn’t in production YET. The tests at Nardo were the last tests left. And with that over, the next step is actually production. That will begin soon at the Bugatti plant in Molsheim, France. Don’t expect to see the Centrodieci on every upper class driveway, though. Only 10 examples are going to be produced, each costing $8.9 million.
It’s absolutely wild to think that land vehicles are reaching speeds like this without literally adding jet rocket thrusters to the back. Though with a seven digit price tag, it’s clearly not easy.
