Some people land their dream jobs and some land the jobs others dream of. Most of us only get to admire these people. For Steve Jenny, that dream job is being the test driver for Bugatti. He not only test drives these exquisite, high-priced, ultra-luxury sports cars, for one model, but he also tests them all. The Bugatti Centodieci is extremely special. It is a car that should make us feel a little more envious of Steve Jenny.

What makes the Bugatti Centodieci so rare and special?

Many boutique automakers build rare cars with only a few different versions for some of the wealthiest customers in the world. The Bugatti Centodieci is one of these cars. This ultra-luxury sports car brings a high price of $8 million each, and there are only 10 of them being built.

There’s something strange about this rare Bugatti

White Bugatti Centodieci | Bugatti

The strange item about the Bugatti Centodieci is the same reason we should be jealous of Steve Jenny. Every model of this rare ultra-luxury sports car comes with at least 217 miles on the odometer. You might expect cars in this price range to reach customers with zeros across the odometer, but that’s not the case.

Every model of the Centodieci goes through two test drives by Steve Jenny. The first is a 186-mile loop that pushes the car hard to ensure it can meet all potential challenges any owner might face. The second test drive is a 30-mile loop after adjustments have been made. This second test is to ensure the car is right and ready for delivery.

How hard does Jenny push the Bugatti Centodieci?

During the 186-mile test run, this incredible Bugatti is pushed to amazing speeds at a closed airport. That number is an electronically-limited top speed of 236 mph. That’s right, the Bugatti Centodieci has a top speed of 236 mp. Steve Jenny has the distinct pleasure of hitting that mark during every test run.

In addition to this speed mark, every model of this ultra-luxury sports car runs through a slalom course and handles emergency maneuvers. This pushes the car hard and ensures it meets all discerning standards and expectations.

Why is Steve Jenny the test driver for the Bugatti Centodieci?

Bugatti Test Driver Steve Jenny | Bugatti

Certainly, Mr. Jenny would not be the right choice without years of experience behind the wheel of many high-performance sports cars. Along with this experience, Bugatti says that Jenny is so attuned to the Centodieci that he can sense small variances in everything. He can tell if the car makes odd noises, has a strange feeling to the buttons, or the gauges don’t look just right. This makes him the right choice for the test driver job for this ultra-luxury sports car.

Production of the Centodieci began in March. The total production number is strictly limited to 10 models. Steve Jenny gets to test all of them, making us all a bit envious of him.
