The first of a total of ten Bugatti Centodieci supercars was delivered to its new owner earlier this year. Following a lengthy and complicated process of testing, preparations, and assembly, one of the most expensive and most powerful products from the automotive industry is now on the roads around Europe. And we mean this literally – this particular car was recently caught on camera in the traffic.
Youtuber 912fordgt was in the right place at just the right time to film the first customer Centodieci. The video description doesn’t include information regarding the location where the supercar was shot but we made a little investigation and concluded the video is from Croatia. As far as we are aware, just recently the Supercar Owners Club had a gathering in Zagreb and Bugatti was probably participating in the event.

The Centodieci was released as an homage to the Bugatti EB110 and the first example delivered to a customer was finished in the same blue colour the EB110 had. This is a very traditional colour combo for the French company and the owner of the Centodieci also has an EB110 GT finished in the same hues. The automaker has plans to assemble just 10 examples of the Centodieci and all have already been spoken for. The Chiron-based supercar costs at least €8 million (£7 million at current rates).
Speaking of the Chiron, the Centodieci is not simply a rebodied version of the model from Molsheim. It is around 20 kilograms (44 pounds) lighter, has a different suspension, and a more aggressive and efficient aerodynamic package. Under the sleek skin is Bugatti’s 8.0-litre W16 engine with a peak output of 1,600 bhp (1,176 kilowatts). The 0-62 miles per hour (0-100 kilometres per hour) acceleration takes just 2.4 seconds.
We are very happy to see such a rare and exotic supercar actually being driven. We know the owner of the first Centodieci won’t take it to the track very often, but at least they are not the type of collector that only keeps their precious car inside a garage.
