Bugatti revealed today that it has completed construction on the first of the 10 Centodici models that will make it. Paying homage to the 90s legend EB110, the paint chosen for this model is of special importance.
The color, EB110 Blue, is still important in Bugatti today, but it was synonymous with the car that was named. Not only was the classic car first exposed to the world in shades of blue, the factory that was built in Campagaliano was painted in the same color and became known as “Fabrica Blue”.
Therefore, it is a suitable color for this modern model, which is based on the Bugatti Chiron. Meanwhile, the wheels are finished in the EB110 Sport Silver, matching the new owner’s EB110 GT, which features the same color combination.

Bugatti President Christoph Peochen said: “We are proud to have completed and distributed some of the most recent models of the first Centodici in Bogatti, Molsheim. “As well as reviving memories of the recent history of the Sentodici brand, the exceptional design and performance builds on the successful 110-year lineage of the Etore Bugatti.”
The interior, too, pays homage to the classic supercar. Featuring a quilted leather seat with a chessboard-like pattern, the new Hypercar draws inspiration from its ancestors and makes it modern. Bugatti also paid close attention to the interior of the car, which took 16 weeks to complete. This includes a day to fully ensure that the seats are perfect.
Powered by the brand’s 8.0-liter W16 engine, the Centodieci produces 1,578 hp (1,177 kW / 1,600 PS) and can reach speeds of 0-62 mph (100 km / h) in just 2.4 seconds. It is then capable of moving at a maximum speed of 236 mph (380 km / h).
Limited to just 10 examples, the Centodici went on sale shortly after its unveiling in Monterey Car Week in 2019, on its 110th anniversary in Bugatti. Interestingly, Bugatti credits the success of its new car to the rising price of the classic EB110s, which have been selling for $ 2.1 million since the Centodici unveiled.
“The EB110, built by Romano Artioli in Italy, was an important milestone in the restoration of Bugatti in 1998,” Peochen said. “After two years of relentless development, we have refined Centodic to meet the standards our customers expect for the Bugatti model. Our designers and engineers instill the same passion and desire for completeness in Marquee’s few off-off models as the Bugatti series production units. “
