Bugatti EB110

Designed by Marcello Gandini, and unveiled 110 years after Ettore Bugatti's birth, in both Versailles and in front of the Grande Arche in Paris, the EB110 is a classic mid-engined supercar which features a 3.5L quad-turbo V12, capable of 553 horsepower. It has a six-speed manual gearbox and a four wheel drive system. 0-62 takes 4.2 seconds, and from there it can go up to 213 miles per hour.  The chassis for the EB110 was made by Aèrospatiale, an aircraft company.

In 1992, the EB110 SS was introduced. It added 60 more horsepower, went 3 miles per hour faster and lowered the 0-62 time by 1.1 seconds. It is belived that in it's production time, 1991-1995, only 139 examples of the EB110 were built. 106 of them were the GT model and the remaining 36 were the Supersport.

F1 Champion, Michael Schumacher bought a yellow Supersport early in 1994, giving the company a lot of publicity. Also, two EB110's entered the 1994 24 Hours of Le Mans, but neither finished.

There have been some EB110 crashes. Here are some of them:

  • A Blue SS crash in Moscow, Russia on July 19, 2009
  • A Grey GT
  • A Blue GT, owned my Emile Ratelband but wrecked by a mechanic, in the Netherlands.
  • Another Blue SS
  • And the EB110 that did the crash test.

Also, in Tolentino, Italy, at a leather factory, there is an unfinished model, as when the car was getting equipped with leather, the company went bankrupt. The factory decided to keep the Bugatti there.
