Modern-Day Bugatti EB110 Is Not a Centodieci, Looks Closer To Original

When a name like Bugatti wishes to look back into its gene pool and bring the retro flavor in a fresh package, the stakes are sky-high. Of course, this is precisely what happened with the Centodieci, which is a modern-day interpretation of the iconic EB110.

Molsheim will only bring ten units of the Chiron-based toy to the world, but there's now an eleventh one, albeit with this only existing in the virtual realm.

I'm refering to the rendering sitting before us. And, as anybody can easily notice by comparing this pixel play to the actual Centodieci in the gallery above, the two are quite different.

That's because Yasid Oozeear, the digital artist behind the machine, wanted to come up with his own reintepretation of the EB110 - make sure to use the swipe feature of the post below for the complete eye candy.

Now, let's take a bit of time to see how Bugatti views the Centodieci.

"The challenge was not to allow oneself to be captivated too much by the design of the historic vehicle and work solely in retrospect, but instead to create a modern interpretation of the shape and technology of that time," says Achim Anscheidt, Head Designer at Bugatti.

"We incorporated the wedge-shaped design in the development process but we took it in a new direction," the penning master adds.

At least from where I'm standing, it looks like the said artist wasn't that concerned with taking a new route, which is why his result appears to be closer to the original. And, if such a machine would ever be built (the chances are obviously pretty close to zero), I'm pretty sure there would be plenty of collectors wishing to add the thing to their garages and I'm prepared to bet the number of positive opinions would one-up the nopes.
