Bugatti Centodieci etymology: What does its name mean?

The 2020 Bugatti Centodieci is a homage to the 1991 to 1995 EB110 produced during the Roman Artioli era, but what does its name mean?


This one’s simple, Centodieci is Italian for a One Hundred and Ten, a callback to the car the Centodieci is styled after.

While the EB110 had a 3.5-litre quad-turbo V12 with 412kW (553hp) or 450kW (603hp) in the Supersport with a 6-speed manual, the Centodieci has a more powerful variant of the Chiron’s 8-litre quad-turbo W16 with 1,176kW (1,577hp).

That’s progress, eh?
