All will be revealed at Pebble Beach next month.
After revealing the dramatically-styled Divo at the 2018 Pebble Beach show and the one-off La Voiture Noire at this year’s 2019 Geneva Motor Show, reports have been claiming that Bugatti will present yet another special one-off hypercar during Monterey Car Week.
Bugatti is remaining tight-lipped, but the Company’s Head of Communication Tim Bravo confirmed to us that Bugatti "will have a world premiere in Pebble Beach" on August 16. That doesn’t give us much to go on, but Girado & Co claims it will be inspired by a model from Bugatti’s past.
While the La Voiture was a modern interpretation of the iconic Type 57 SC Atlantic, Girado & Co claims Bugatti’s next one-off hypercar will be inspired by the EB110 SS from the 1990s. Only ten will allegedly be built, each priced at 8 million euros – that’s nearly $9 million based on current exchanged rates.
That may sound extortionate, but the La Voiture cost an eye-watering $18 million, which made it the most expensive new car ever produced. No other details were provided, but it seems likely that the E110 SS successor will be based on the Chiron like Bugatti’s other recent limited-edition models.
Launched in 1991, the EB110 was named after company founder Ettore Bugatti to mark his 110th birthday. Its styling may have been an acquired taste, but its technology and performance was class-leading. A 3.5-liter, quad-turbo V12 sent 550 horsepower to all four wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox, while the more potent Super Sport version increased the output to 610 horsepower.
This enabled the mid-engined supercar hit 0-62 mph in just 3.26 seconds and achieve a top speed of 220 mph, making it the fastest production vehicle in the world back in 1995. It was beaten a few years later by the McLaren F1 in 1998, which had a top speed of 240 mph. Let’s hope Bugatti releases some teasers of its mystery one-off hypercar before the big reveal on August 16.
