Listen To The Bugatti EB110 Scream At 8,700 RPM

Video / Comments

This is a rare treat.

The Bugatti EB110 may not get the same recognition as its Veyron and Chiron successors, but at the time of release, the Super Sport variant was the fastest production car in the world with a top speed of 220 mph before it was beaten by the McLaren F1. That may not sound impressive now, but this was mind-blowing in the 1990s. Only 139 examples of the EB110 were built between 1991 and 1995 before Bugatti went bankrupt. That makes the EB110 even rarer than the Chiron, which is capped at 500 units and nearing the end of its production run. Thus, getting to hear one on the dyno is something you don't want to miss out on.

Frustratingly, the above video from NM2255 Car HD Videos doesn't allow us to see the dyno results to find out how the supercar performs, but we do get to hear the EB110's magnificent 3.5-liter quad-turbocharged V12 engine scream all the way to the 8,700 rpm redline, and it sounds sublime. The owner has had the muffler removed, which makes the EB110 sound even more raucous. We're not sure how collectors will view this sort of thing, but we don't care.

When it was new, the EB110's V12 generated 553 horsepower and 451 lb-ft of torque, which was sent to all four wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. Flat out, the EB110 GT would hit 212 mph. The more potent Super Sport variant was uprated to 603 hp and 479 lb-ft.

After the dyno run, the owner takes the EB110 for a spirited drive on the street, something that we'd love to experience in person. Unfortunately, used examples of the EB110 are not easy to find. If you do happen to find one, be prepared to pay a small fortune; a rare EB110 SS recently sold for nearly $3 million at auction. If you have the funds but can't find the car, Bugatti is paying tribute to the EB110 with the limited-edition Centodieci, which recently underwent extreme hot weather testing before production begins. However, that too is sold out, and it cost over $8 million new.
