The world's most expensive car was unveiled publicly on Friday in California by Bugatti. Bugatti Centodieci will cost $ 9 million and only 10 cars of this type will be produced, CNN reports. All 10 cars are already reserved.
This model is a tribute to the Bugatti EB110 model from the 90's. Centodieci means 110 in Italian. The EB 110 was built in the heart of Italy, not far from the Lamborghini, Ferrari and Maserati factories. It was an attempt to revive the Bugatti brand, which has been in decline since 1950. The model presented on Friday, Centodieci, is making an aggressive appeal to the old EB 110.
This model was a failure from a business point of view, but the machine created at the time is still considered one of the largest super cars ever created. The EB110 prototype was created by Carlo Gandini, who also designed the Lamborghini Countach.
Volkswagen Group bought the Bugatti in 1998 and builds fast cars in France for the richest people in the world.
The Centodieci model is Bugatti's latest attempt to penetrate the market. Last year, the Divo model was launched, costing $ 6 million, of which only 40 were made. Then, in March this year, in Geneva, Bugatti introduced another special car, from which they made a single copy. It was worth $ 19 million called the La Voiture Noire and was the most expensive car ever sold in the world. The buyer's name was never revealed.
