HISTORY

The Bugatti EB 110 is a mid-engine sports car from Bugatti Automobili SpA, the 1990s successor to one of the most celebrated marques in automotive history. It was unveiled on September 15, 1991, in both Versailles and in front of the Grande Arche at La Defense in Paris, France, exactly 110 years after Ettore Bugatti's birth.

The car uses a double wishbone suspension, with the chassis built by Aerospatiale, an aircraft company, and made from carbon fibre. Equipped with Gandini's famous lifting scissor doors, it has a glass engine cover that provides a view of the V12 engine along with a speed sensitive electronic rear wing that can be raised at the flick of a switch. The shifter is placed closer to the driver so that less time is taken to change gear and the return you hand to the steering wheel. Five preproduction prototypes with aluminium chassis were built, followed by eight with composite chassis. Following these, it is believed that only 95 GT and 31 SS production models were constructed.
