Bugatti EB110 Super Sport driven hard [video]

Pedal to the metal.

 

Although most of us associate the modern Bugatti with the Veyron, let’s not forget about the precursor of this model – the EB110. It was introduced back in 1991, four years after the Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli bought the rights to the name.

The Bugatti EB110 was an insane supercar at its time, featuring a quad-turbocharged V12 60-valve engine that developed an impressive 553 hp (412 kW) that was transferred to all four wheels via a 6-speed manual gearbox.

In 1992 a lighter and more powerful version was introduced, known as the SS (Super Sport). The V12 engine was modified in order to unleash 603 hp (449 kW) and allowed the supercar to perform the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 3.2 seconds and hit a top speed of 216 mph (348 km/h).

It is believed that Bugatti built only about 30 units of the EB110 Super Sport, and one of these is being brutally driven in this video.

How is this "brutally driven"? It was given a necessary limit test! Have to unleash it at least on occasion and not just keep it a strict garage queen.

Well first time I hear of this car. By its looks I remember it existed but DDNT click its a Bugatti. It looks like its a good product and then I cant but wonder whether this car was used as an insipration by McLaren when they were designing their F1 or is it vice versa?

Brutally???? Really? The guy does a small burnout through a puddle and drives at full throttle for a few seconds and we call it brutal?

Super rare and epic. An iconic car of the 90s. Didnt Michael Schuhmacher own one?
