Even few-off cars like the BUGATTI Centodieci, which is limited to ten units only, are elaborately developed and fine-tuned – in this case, using a state-of-the-art wind tunnel.
In these tests, BUGATTI’s engineers check the airflow on and around the CENTODIECI at a variety of speeds. Starting at 140 km/h, they use a standard setup to determine a benchmark figure for comparison with other BUGATTI hyper sports cars. They then run various tests up to the test bench’s maximum speed, when the wind envelops the elegant low bodywork at up to 300 km/h before slipping off at the rear. It is cold, powerful, and invisible. A 9,300 PS engine drives an eight-meter propeller, generating a permanent intensive airflow.
The CENTODIECI – presented to the public at The Quail at Pebble Beach in 2019 – was sold out within a matter of hours at a net unit price of eight million euros. Delivery of the highly exclusive and handcrafted few-off model will begin next year.
This model is not subject to Directive 1999/94/EC, as type approval has not yet been granted.
