The Bugatti EB110 may not get the same amount of admiration as its successor, but that doesn’t mean the Nineties supercar isn’t tremendously special. With a production run of under 150 units, the EB110 is far rarer than the Veyron and other models that came to bear the Bugatti name after it. As a result, seeing one of these things out in the real world is perhaps a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Thanks to NM2255 Car HD Videos on YouTube, we all have a chance to watch one of these supercars hit the dyno.
The EB110 featured in the clip is one of the GT variants, of which some 96 were produced between 1991 and 1995. The car is powered by a 3.5-liter quad-turbocharged V-12 engine, producing 553 hp and 451 lb-ft of torque. That power was sent to an all-wheel-drive system via a six-speed manual gearbox, which helps the car rocket to 60 mph in just 3.3 seconds. Keep your foot to the floor and the EB110 GT is capable of doing 212 mph flat out. The car’s chassis was provided by the French aerospace firm Aérospatiale, which comes supported by extensive use of carbon fiber and items like double-wishbone suspension. Combined with the car’s slick active aerodynamics, the EB110 GT is far from only a straight-line monster. The tech packed inside this supercar wouldn’t seem entirely out of place today, which only further highlights how special this thing truly was at the time of its debut.
