The Veyron may have been the car that made the French automaker a household name, but a decade before it, Bugatti was building another supercar: the EB110.
Built from 1991 to 1995, just 139 units of the Bugatti EB110 were ever produced, making it significantly rarer than its successor.
The vehicle was unveiled 110 years after the birth of Ettore Bugatti, hence its name, and in standard guise was powered by a 3.5-liter quad-turbocharged V12 delivering 552 hp. Such a figure may not seem all that impressive in today’s world of 1000 hp hypercars, but it was still enough to send the supercar to speeds well over 200 mph (320 km/h).
As a matter of fact, the range-topping Super Sport model could reach 62 mph (100 km/h) in a claimed 3.2 seconds and run through to 216 mph (348 km/h).
Nowadays, EB110’s are very rarely seen on the street, but earlier this year, a stunning example painted silver made an appearance on the French Riviera during Top Marques Monaco.
While not as loud or brash as many of the cars which Top Marques frequently attracts, the EB110 turned a fair amount of heads and sent some of the local photographers into an absolute frenzy all while looking impeccably classy.
