Pebble Beach is happening this weekend and you guess it right, car makers are racing in releasing their latest gems. This time, is Bugatti's turn, which has been cooking something and the more inquisitors, it was rumored to be an EB110 hommage.

Here enters Centodieci, which is a modern throwback to EB110, the blend between the Chiron and the EB is a phenomenal success. Achim Anscheidt said “Transporting this classic look into the new millennium without copying it was technically complex, to say the least. We had to create a new way of combining the complex aerothermal requirements of the underlying Chiron technology with a completely different aesthetic appearance.”

At the front, the representative grille is smaller as per EB110 design, with larger side intakes, a pair of slim LED headlights complete the car's focused design. At the sides, there's distinctive styling for the roof as the A pillar is angular, which makes the roof to appear flat. This finishes up with a five round air intakes, a throwback to EB110 SS.

The back is unique to Centodieci, with a resemblance to the Divo, it hosts a large all-LED tail lights and a massive diffuser and wing.

The power comes from the consacrated 8.0-liter W16 engine, capable of producing 1578 HP, launching the car to 100km.h in 2.4, with a limited top speed of 380km.h

Bugatti CEO Stephan Winkelmann said “The increased power and lower weight further improve performance – for even better acceleration at high speeds.”

Production is limited to 10 units, already sold out for a price tag of $8.9mil.
