Known History

BUGATTI EB110 SS

The modern Bugatti story began in 1989 when Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli bought the rights to the famous Bugatti name. No cars had been produced since 1947 following the death of founder Ettore Bugatti. The new EB110 model in GT form was introduced to the public on 15th September 1991, 110 years from the birthday of Ettore Bugatti.

The aluminium body was styled by Marcello Gandini at Bertone and produced by Aerospatiale with the panels bonded to the carbon fibre monocoque chassis. Features included scissor doors, a glass engine cover and speed sensitive rear wing. Power came from a mid-mounted 3.5L V12 with dual overhead cams and four turbos producing 550hp. This was coupled to a six speed manual gearbox with drive to all four wheels.

1992 saw the introduction of the 110EB SS model, the SS denoting Super Sport, some 150kg lighter than the GT. Power was also increased to 615hp. Only 31 SS models were produced. One of the cars was entered for the 1994 LeMans 24 Hours in the GT1 class. Although fastest in training, the race was not without problems and the car crashed out near to the end of the race with tyre failure.

Production of the EB110 ended in 1995 with the company bankrupt, the name later being purchased by Volkswagen.

The silver car here was one of two EB110 models modified by Brabus, this being the only Supersport version. The Brabus custom interior features blue leather seats, blue and black leather dash and special four round pipe exhaust.

The car was originally registered in Germany in 1993 and subsequently given its current UK registration in 2009. Since Brabus the car is understood to have had one collector owner who took the car to the USA (Florida), then to Switzerland before bringing it to the UK in 2009, until selling it to its last owner.
