This tribute to the EB110 SS will be revealed at Pebble Beach next week.
Next week, we'll finally found out what Bugatti has been cooking up. Reports have claimed Bugatti will reveal another limited-edition hypercar at Pebble Beach following the $18-million La Voiture Noire that debuted at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, this time inspired by the EB110 SS from the 1990s. Bugatti has confirmed it "will have a world premiere in Pebble Beach", but won't confirm if it will be inspired by the EB110.
During a recent interview, the EB110's creator revealed he would love to see Bugatti develop a tribute to the mid-engined supercar. So far, Bugatti hasn't released any teaser photos of the new model, but Germany's Auto Motor Und Sport has managed to obtain a partial design sketch allegedly produced by Bugatti chief designer Achim Anscheidt, potentially showing what Bugatti's next hypercar will look like.
Auto Motor Und Sport believes the internal design sketch was used on a greeting card from the Bugatti Design Studio, but this hasn't been confirmed. Using the design sketch as a basis, the German publication has mocked up a render (pictured above) showing what the new hypercar tribute could look like when the covers come off at Pebble Beach.
Shown from the front, the distinctive crossbars in the grille are clearly inspired by the EB110 Super Sport but the quad headlights on each side of the hood have been vertically stacked, resulting in a striking appearance. We'll have to wait and see if the final car's design matches the render.
Like the Divo and La Voiture Noire before it, the EB110 SS tribute car will reportedly be based on the Chiron. According to reports, only ten examples will be built, each priced at 8 million euros – nearly $9 million based on current exchanged rates. That's half the price of the $18-million La Voiture Noire, which is the most expensive new production car ever built.
Whereas the original EB110 SS was powered by a 3.5-liter, quad-turbo V12 that sent 610 horsepower to all four wheels, the new limited-edition hypercar will likely use the Chiron's 8.0-liter, 16-cylinder quad-turbo, which produces 1,479 horsepower. All will be revealed at Pebble Beach on August 18. In the meantime, don't be surprised if Bugatti releases some teaser images of its latest project before then.
