If you think you just couldn’t cut it with a mere 1001 horsepower, Bugatti’s got just the car for you, the new Centenaire. But getting one could prove a bit problematic.

Considering there are plans to build a grand total of one copy of the striking 2-seater, it’s hard to dispute the claim by Bugatti CEO Franz-Josef Paefgen that this is the “ultimate limited edition.”

The name, Centenaire isn’t a random choice. Even if you don’t speak French, you may realize that it’s designed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the legendary automaker by its eponymous founder, Etiore Bugatti.
