Million-dollar hypercars? Suprisingly, it's commonplace these days. You have cars like the Ferrari La Ferrari, McLaren P1 and Porsche 918 Spyder. There are even some bespoke specials reaching two million dollars. So what's one like for more than triple the price?
Well wonder no more. Introducing the Bugatti Centodieci, and it costs a staggering nine million dollars. That's Php 466,008,450 for this ultra-rare hypercar from the French automaker. Yes folks, that's nearly half a billion Pesos for a car.
The Bugatti Centodieci is touted as the spiritual successor of their first supercar for the modern age, the EB 110. Think of it as a Chiron on steroids with its more aggressive design and uprated power. How much more power, you ask? Try 1,600 PS and a face-shredding 1,600 Nm of torque from its 8.0-liter, quad-turbo, W16 engine. To keep it glued to the road, it comes with permanent all-wheel drive and it shifts via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
With that much power and torque, Bugatti claims that the Centodieci can do the 0 to 100 km/h run in just 2.4 seconds. Want to be more impressed? 0 to 200 km/h is achieved in 6.1 seconds, while 0 to 300 km/h sprints are dealt with in a mere 13.1 seconds. Unrestricted top speed hasn't been mentioned yet, although we're expecting a figure north of 400 km/h. With the limiter on, it's capped to “just” 380 km/h.
As for its body, it pays tribute to the EB 110. The slats on the front bumper and smaller Bugatti “Horseshoe” are reminiscent of the 90's hypercar. There's also the five holes right behind the side windows that helps feed air into the engine. Even the air outlet on the rear bumpers are present on the Centodieci, as well as the large rear wind the EB 110 had.
But say you have nearly half a billion Pesos in your bank account, it won't be easy to get the Centodieci. Bugatti will only make 10 of these, each one of them hand-built.
