Bugatti revealed the hypercar nearly two years ago.
The summer of 2019 feels like a lifetime ago, a different era almost, but that’s when Bugatti introduced the Centodieci at Pebble Beach. The EB110 homage and celebratory model for Bugatti’s centennial won’t reach customers until 2022, with prototype production begining in February of this year. However, new spy shots show the hypercar out testing for the first time as it tackles the Nurburgring race track.
The spy shots don’t reveal anything we haven’t seen before. The new Bugatti has all the hallmarks of the brand’s new design language, though the EB110 influences are quite prominent. The front end features a smaller horseshoe flanked by trisected air intakes. Gone is Bugatti’s C-shaped B-pillar, which is replaced by five diamond-shaped air intakes. These intakes help feed the 8.0-liter W16 engine, the brand’s most powerful interpretation of the mill. The rear is where the new Bugatti diverges from its EB110 influence, with unique taillights and stacked exhaust pipes. For the full story, check out this article from Motor 1.
