Bugatti unveiled a new $10 million Centodieci supercar Friday that's capable of going from 0 to 62 miles per hour in 2.4 seconds. A tribute to the EB110 on the surface but a reskinned Chiron underneath, Bugatti says this auto is an amalgamation of classic concepts, modern ones and those unique to the EB110.

Compared to the Chiron it's based on the Centodieci is 20 kilograms lighter. 'With the Centodieci, we once again demonstrate that design, quality and performance are just as important, ' adds Winkelmann. This moves the Bugatti badge from the grille to the bonnet.

As Bugatti celebrates its 110 anniversary, it is using The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering as the backdrop for the unveiling of its most powerful supercar to date.

Whereas the EB110 SS was powered by a 3.5-liter, quad-turbo V12 that produced 610 horsepower, the Centodieci features Bugatti's iconic 8.0-liter W16 engine developing 1,600 hp at 7,000 rpm - that's 100 more horses than the Chiron.

Centodieci, which is Italian for 110, has unique styling, even by hypercar standards.

While the Centodieci doesn't mess with the Chiron's silhouette or its triangular nose shape, it does have much edgier and sharper design details. It is seen with horizontal headlamps, the latest in LED lamps and it also gets a permanently raised rear wing as against the Chiron wing which can be raised or lowered. Instead of copying the classic Italian wedge in which the muscle runs from the rear to the front wheel, suggesting a dynamic leap forward, Bugatti strikes out on a new path in the Centodieci. In this insane world of high-stakes number games, nothing comes close to a Bugatti, particularly one which takes inspiration from the iconic EB110. And the NACA ducts on the top surface of the rear fenders on the EB110 can now be found on the roof of the Centodieci, directing cooling air into an engine bay that, unlike the Chiron, is now covered in glass.

The tail is formed like a futuristic space ship to a single ventilation hole, marked by eight back-lighting elements, matte exhaust tailpipes and the massive diffuser.

The filigree exterior mirrors and windshield wiper are made of carbon fiber, for example. Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann said "The increased power and lower weight further improve performance - for even better acceleration at high speeds".

The new paint tone matches this.

Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has his exclusive Hyper sports vehicle: a Whopping 13 million Swiss francs, the Portuguese star footballer for the in the spring at the Geneva auto salon, shown a single piece, the Bugatti La Voiture Noire, hung and got the most expensive cars in the world! He says that this was what continues to set Bugatti apart after 110 years. And, while the vehicle you're seeing here is painted white, potential customers can have their Centodieci painted in the Bugatti color of their choice. After its short period in Italy, Bugatti has now been back at its old headquarters in Molsheim, France, for nearly 20 years.
