Bugatti pays attention to the smallest details before launching the (very limited) production of its Centodieci. The Supercar is therefore extensively tested to test its resistance. He especially had to face a -20 degree pole test!
Bugatti unveiled the first prototype of the Centodieci 2022 in February 2021. This supercar, with a price of 8 million euros, will be produced in ten copies, which have already found buyers. Among the buyers we find especially football player Cristiano Ronaldo. Before starting production, the manufacturer is conducting a battery test to check the resistance of the future race car, which can accelerate from 0-100 km / h in 2.4 seconds.
After being tested in the desert areas of Arizona at 45 degrees, the car was tested in literally opposite conditions. The manufacturer posted a short video on Twitter in which the car appears in a cold room where the temperature drops to -20 degrees Celsius. And to proudly end: “Centodieci is ready to adapt to any environment”.

Centodieci withstands the cold without any problems
At this price, buyers expect close to perfection, although it is unlikely that they will decide to attack the Arctic. “The Centodieci, like any Bugatti, should run perfectly at 50°C and -20°C, whatever the temperature”, underlines Carl Heilenkötter, technical project manager.
In detail, this test, carried out in extreme cold, made it possible, in particular, to check the correct functioning of the side windows. According to engineer Jülf Fiedler, “The window should be able to detect a certain resistance and reopen if necessary”. A system is specifically designed to make the window do the reverse path in the event of resistance. A way to avoid pinching the user’s finger.
Also, the windows should work even when the thermometer drops below 0. After precise testing, Engineers have confirmed that window conditioners are superbly efficient in extreme conditions. In addition, the manufacturer is also working on other supersonic cars, such as the Bugatti Bolide, which is planned for 2024.
