Bugatti EB110 GT 1994 – SPRZEDANE

EB110 pełni istotną rolę w historii marki Bugatti, ponieważ był pierwszym modelem, jaki wyjechał na drogi po wskrzeszeniu marki w 1987 roku. EB110 był jedynym modelem produkcyjnym stworzonym przez Romano Artioli, przedsiębiorcę dzierżącego stery włoskiego wcielenia Bugatti. Rozwój EB110 rozpoczął się po długim procesie projektowania, a pierwsze samochody zostały dostarczone klientom dopiero w 1992 roku. Kształt EB110 stał się natychmiastową ikoną, rozpoznawalna na całym świecie. Bugatti z karoserią stworzoną z ultralekkich kompozytów, jak włókno węglowe, Kevlar czy Nomex, napędzane jest 3,5-litrowym silnikiem V-12 z poczwórnym turbodoładowaniem. Silnik umieszczony centralnie ogromną moc 560 KM przekazuje na obydwie osie pojazdu. Jeden z zaledwie 139 wyprodukowanych egzemplarzy i jeden z 84 zbudowanych w specyfikacji „GT” wystawiony został na aukcji. EB110 GT wykończony w szarym metalicznym kolorze z dwukolorowym szarym wnętrzem i drewnianymi wykończeniami, został zbudowany w 1994 roku. Zarejestrowany do ruchu drogowego 2 czerwca 1995 roku w Austrii, pozostaje pod opieką pierwszego właściciela do dziś. Licznik kilometrów wskazuje zaledwie 25542 km, a w grudniu 2021 roku samochód przeszedł konserwację karoserii. Bugatti serwisowane przez B-Engineering z Campogalliano, sprzedane zostało za 1,805 miliona euro, podczas aukcji 2 lutego w Paryżu.

At the time of its unveiling in September 1991, the EB110 was an immeasurably important car for Bugatti. The model represented the first product to come from the modern phase of the company, having been relaunched in 1987 as Bugatti Automobili SpA, signifying a revival of the original brand founded by Ettore Bugatti. In the early-1990s, the EB110 typified Bugatti as a manufacturer of some of the most technologically advanced hypercar machinery of its era—laying the foundations for later models to emanate from the Molsheim design room, such as the Veyron and the Chiron—and the EB110 gave Bugatti a foothold against rival manufacturers, such as Ferrari and Lamborghini.

Development of the EB110 began upon the reboot of the company and after a protracted design process, the first cars were delivered to customers from 1992. With its scissor doors, headlights hidden behind Perspex covers and distinctive arch shape woven into the centre of the grille, the EB110 cut an instantly recognisable shape. The car would go onto become a poster pin-up icon in an age of highly designed and increasingly powerful hypercars. While Bugatti launched the EB110 with the “GT” model as standard, the Super Sport—or “SS”—followed just months later, said to be both lighter and more powerful. Both specifications were powered by Bugatti’s 3.5-litre, quad-turbocharged V-12 engine; the “GT” version producing a 553 horsepower and the later “SS” application further tuned for 603 horsepower. Bugatti went bankrupt in 1995, ending production of the EB110 with a total production run of 139 models.

This example, an attractive EB110 GT finished in Grey Metallic over a two-tone grey interior with wood trim, was built in 1994. The Bugatti was registered for the road in Austria on 2 June 1995, remaining under the care of its first owner until now. At time of cataloguing the car’s odometer displayed just 25,542 km. Hints of blue around the interior and in the engine bay complement the grey and silver colour scheme throughout, which extends to the 18-inch BBS split wheels, typical of the era. In December 2021, the car underwent light bodywork maintenance at Ferrari Jeris of Modena, totalling €8,320, who also cleaned and polished the exterior and photos of this can be seen in the accompanying history file. The Bugatti was serviced by B-Engineering of Campogalliano to a cost of €20,500, adding a stamp to its maintenance book. The EB110 was verified with a Certificate of Authenticity, issued by B-Engineering—on behalf of the ceased Bugatti Automobili SpA—on 10 December 2021, confirming the matching-numbers engine.

While there is a period of overlap for manufacture of the original “GT” and later “SS” versions of the EB110—with the former made between 1992 to 1995, and the latter from 1993 to 1995—it is thought that this example is among the last of the 10 manufactured of the EB110 GT. In total, it is believed just 84 examples of the “GT” model were produced, including factory cars. This example, coming out of long-term single ownership, is sure to appeal to any Bugatti enthusiast seeking a fine example of this significant model.
