It's a living legend and it can be yours, if you have a couple million in the bank.
Forget about the Bugatti Divo or Chiron, if you're really into exclusive French metal, then you'll be after the one and only EB110 SS. This 1990s Italian supercar was deemed a flop by many, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it looks amazing, and that only about 32 ever made it into production. We've covered Jay Leno driving the world's only bare carbon-fiber example, but it is rare that we see one for sale. Pistonheads.com recently listed one of these ultra-rare exotics for sale in the UK, and we had to take a closer look at this prime example of '90s supercar nostalgia.
The Bugatti EB110 was launched in 1991, and soon after came an even hotter version, named the Super Sport. The car you see in front of you is one of these ultra-exclusive Super Sport models. Where the standard car featured lots of wood, leather, and even fitted luggage, the SuperSport went the other route: featuring a 330-lb weight reduction through the use of carbon Kevlar panels. The output of the 3.5-liter, quad-turbo V12 went up from 550 horsepower to 610 hp. This gave the EB110 Super Sport the ability to sprint from 0-60 mph in only 3.26 seconds, and go on to a top speed of 220 mph, making it the fastest production car in 1995. This car was so cool that F1-legend Michael Schumacher bought a yellow one.
The best thing about the EB110 SS is that you're more than 3 times as likely to find a McLaren F1 cruising around the neighborhood than this. This car in particular is chassis no. 39037 and is one of the last five built in Blue Bugatti over Grigio Chiaro leather. The original owner kept the GT leather and wood interior, but kept the carbon panels underneath, and the driver's seat has been raised by over an inch. The engine was also fettled with, and now produces 632 hp, almost 20 more than the original SS. It was restored in 2019, and while a price hasn't been given for it, a similar car with lower mileage sold for €2m ($2,361,660) back in 2019. One of our readers should definitely invest.
