New Bugatti Centodieci surpasses Chiron in sheer power, yields in top speed
Following a series of teaser images, the much-anticipated Bugatti Centodieci finally made an appearance at the Monterey Car Week in California, USA. Just as we predicted, the hypercar turned out more powerful and agile than the Chiron it is based upon.
The Centodieci packs the same eight-liter, quad-turbo W16 monster engine as its donor, but manages to squeeze 1,600 hp (1,193 kilowatts) out of it instead of the standard 1,500 hp (1,120 kW). The torque remains undisclosed, but should be something to envy, given the Chiron’s 1,600 Nm (1,180 pound-feet).
The Centodieci zaps from nothing to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 2.5 seconds (-0.1 s) and hits 200 km/h (124 mph) in 13.1 s (-0.5 s). Its one downside is the top speed, which is capped at 380 km/h (236 mph), rather than Chiron’s 420 km/h (261 mph).
On an interesting side note, while the legendary EB110 supercar came out to celebrate 110 years since the birth of Ettore Bugatti, the new No. 110 celebrates the same age of the luxury car marque itself.
