You know, the Veyron's predecessor.
Just a few years prior to Bugatti becoming a part of the Volkswagen Group/Empire, it was privately owned by an Italian entrepreneur and produced a single model: the EB 110. Launched in 1991 and only sold until 1995, the EB 110 is a mid-engined all-wheel drive supercar powered by a 3.5-liter quad-turbo V12 mated to a six-speed manual. Do we really have to mention how awesome analog supercars are? The EB 110 SS was launched in 1992, essentially a lighter and more powerful version of the "standard" EB 110.
Horsepower increased from 550 hp to 604 hp, and its performance numbers were insanely impressive: 0-60 mph in 3.2 seconds and a top speed of 216 mph. Chances are you haven’t seen too many EB 110s around. It’s not like you see all that many Veyrons either, so we really dug watching this EB 110 GT test drive video from Drive Experience.
OK, so what if it’s in Italian? Not like you can’t read English subtitles. Remember, the car is the star and, holy crap, the EB 110 GT is one hell of a thing. It’s pretty incredible just how advanced Bugatti was at the time, especially since it didn’t have the financial backing and engineering powerhouse that is VW at its disposal. Heck, even the initial prototype design was penned by the one and only Marcello Gandini (Hint: he designed the Lamborghini Miura and Countach). There’s no question the Bugatti EB 110 is special, but to see it being driven on track is a whole other story.
