One of the most prestigious brands in the history of reasonably automotive is the French manufacturer of high-powered automobiles – Bugatti. The Molsheim-based Hypercar producer recently announced that the production-based prototype of its special coach-built model Centodici has completed more than 50,000 test kilometers. The brand further announced that after returning from the Nordo Ring in the Puglia region of southern Italy, the model will enter the production line shortly after the final tolerance test.
Bugatti’s second modern coach-built model pays homage to the typical 1990s super sports car: the EB110. Despite the fact that only 10 units of this model will be built, Bugatti is still on the verge of testing the prototype of this model for many months.
The company revealed that Centodieci’s “White Prototype” was kept at its speed in a variety of driving situations, including high-speed runs, handling routes, circuits, highways and city traffic. The hypercar was driven for 1,200 kilometers per day, with only stops for mechanical inspection, driver change and refueling.
The three drivers took turns working to evaluate the performance of Centodic, recording and reporting any minor discrepancies. They drove all hours of the day and night, at different track profiles and at all speeds, from stop-and-go to maximum speed. The drivers selected for this endurance test are some of the best in the business, exceptional technical knowledge, attention, and sensitivity, as well as precise car control.
After hours of long patience, the drivers went to make the smallest note of odd sounds, speeds, and inconsistencies. Everything about automobiles was thoroughly tested, including driving on different terrain – both wet and dry – and testing every small steering action, braking, acceleration, cornering load and driver aid system operation.
Carl Heilencotter – project manager responsible for Bugatti’s one-off and several-off projects, said: “We evaluate every component of the car one last time, focusing on functionality and durability before the first Centodici car goes into production.”
He added, “Centodici is deliberately driven to its limits to guarantee reliable operation at the highest level even in extreme conditions. Although most vehicles do not enter this range, it is tested. It is a brand philosophy and that is why we are so big in all these tests.” Bugatti is committed to the highest quality, durability and customer satisfaction. “
Prior to this final phase of Centodeici’s production-spec prototype testing, Germany has completed heat-weather tests, air tunnel tests, and even some heating laps on the rigorous Nবারrburging circuit. Following the final evaluation of the test, the highly exclusive model from the French automaker will enter the production line at Molsheim Atelier, Alsace, and Bugatti said it would finish supplying all ten vehicles to the owners before the end of this year. .
Centodieci is powered by Bugatti’s famous 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W-16 engine. The engine has been tweaked to produce 1,577 horsepower, which is 97 horsepower more than the Chiron. Bugatti claims that the car will accelerate from 0-62 mph in 2.4 seconds, 0-124 mph in 6.1 seconds and 0-186 mph in 13.1 seconds.
