Bugatti Channels Early ’90s Supercar Swag in New $8.9 Million Auto

On Friday in Monterey, Calif., Bugatti unveiled the yang to its yin: The Centodieci, an all-white coupe, complements Bugatti’s $12.5 million, jet-black La Voiture Noire

As with many luxury car manufacturers  these days, the 110-year-old French brand chose the Quail Gathering during Monterey Car Week for the world debut, rather than a traditional auto show. And given the current climate, where cars from the 1980s and ’90s are heating up the collectors’ market, its new model is refreshingly retro and very on point.

“We’re demonstrating a powerful contrast with the La Voiture Noire, the black car just presented in March,” said Stephan Winkelmann, Bugatti’s president, in a statement.
