Pebble Beach is underway, which can only mean automakers have begun to pull back the covers. Bugatti is at the Quail with the hypercar everyone is talking about, the new Centodieci.
Since every new Bugatti design in the past few years has blown people away, we decided to take another look at how the company pays tribute to the legendary EB110. The best video for that would be the one Shmee150 shot, which also looks at a classic EB110 in yellow and the Chiron that underpins everything.

Centodieci, which is Italian for 110, has unique styling, even by hypercar standards. The trademark horseshoe grille which every Bugatti has become a lot smaller, down to the size of a Mercedes badge. At the same time, the deep brow over the narrow headlights casts a dark shadow under the California sun.

It's hard to believe Bugatti will actually put this into production. Ten of them will be made at a rate of two every year, with prices starting at $9 million... plus taxes. Even so, all have been spoken for.

Continuing our analysis, the profile of the car gets rid of the wide C curve behind the door and instead promotes a clean shoulder line and the same five vents you see on the EB110. The deck and rear wing have evolved, culminating with the mother of all diffusers and vertically stacked double exhausts that look like rockets or afterburners.

And since the design appeals to the 12YO in you, the powertrain is ridiculous as well: 1,600 horsepower from the familiar 8-liter W16 monster. That's about three times more than the inspiration vehicle.

Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann said it's going to be better than the Chiron, adding that “The increased power and lower weight further improve performance – for even better acceleration at high speeds."
