Casil Motors Aims To Produce The Bugatti EB110-Based Edonis

Casil Motors has announced plans to create the “the ultimate enthusiast driven supercar, uninterrupted by modern electronic aids and built from the ashes of Bugatti.”

While the company isn’t a household name, Casil was previously known as PSC Motors and they developed the SP-200 SIN concept which was slated to have a 9.0-liter V8 engine, an output of at least 1650 hp (1230 kW), and a top speed in excess of 280 mph (450 km/h). Given the insane performance figures, it’s not exactly surprising the car never went anywhere.

The company is hoping for better luck this time around as Casil CEO Antonio Calva intends to put the ill-fated Edonis into production nearly 17 years after it was introduced.

For those unfamiliar with the story of the Edonis, Calva says it sprung out of the bankruptcy of Bugatti in the 1990’s. A group of former employees joined forces and pooled their money together to purchase 17 carbon fiber tubs that were destined to be used for EB110 production. The team had plans to build a supercar of their own, called the Edonis, but things never worked out.

Casil acquired the rights to the project last year and now intends to bring the it to fruition. The car is slated to have a hand-crafted aluminum body which rides on top of a slightly modified tub and chassis sourced from the EB110.

Motivation is slated to come from a twin-turbo 3.8-liter 12-cylinder engine that develops 720 hp (536 kW). It will be connected to a six-speed manual transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. The company claims this will enable the car to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.4 seconds before hitting a top speed in excess of 220 mph (354 km/h).

Calva says the car is in the “final stages of development” and everything is ready for production which will begin very soon. If everything works out, the company will build 15 units for $849,190 (€690,000) a pop.

    They’re lucky this car isn’t autonomous.

    It would probably wrap itself around a tree after seeing its reflection.

    Awkward styling.. big time!

    Car looks like it’s struggling to poo.

    • exeptor

      A good one!

  • exeptor

    It was an interesting car back in time. The promised figures were mindblowing and the styling was quite strange but different. From the back the car looks really mad. The front is weird but not especially ugly if we keep in mind that it was function over form :). The fact that they wanted to save what was left behind EB110 deserves respect.

      Absolutly! It’s a great effort, but they should hire a designer… looks like the engineers gave it a shot.

  • So company that’s previously announced wannabe supercar finally bought a car that was launched 10 years ago and based on car from 90s.

    Yeah I’m a skeptical, and how they gonna pass crash test, and I doubt that Bugatti engine emission is still up to date with current one.

    And that means they can only produced at least 17, since that’s how much unused EB110 tub left.

    • jh

      Maybe. But the 90’s sportcars were the most exciting ones! They have more character and are a handful to drive -》 more rewarding for the driver.

      • No doubt it, car like XJ220, EB110 or F40 are among the best driver cars of all time.

  • jh

    If it just wouldn’t be so damn ugly…..

  • Okay guys I’ve been digging around, they will only produced 15 cars based on leftover EB110 tubs, The styling would remained the same bar some led and aftermarket forged wheels (which makes it uglier honestly).

    And that the car will still be produced in Italy by B Engineering, It seems LV based Casil only provide funds for the Edonis return to production.

    • LWOAP

      That just makes it even worse. It will be a dated and ugly design built off of a tub and chassis of a car that’s been out of production for 17 years. How could they possibly think this will be a good thing?

      • Well I guess they will try to market it as analogue supercar thing. But if they don’t change major electronic. Technically you are buying a brand new late 90s supercar.
