With plans being put in place from 1989, the EB110GT was presented to the public in Paris in 1991 on the day that would have marked Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday, hence the car’s name. The car was originally designed by Marcello Gandini but his designed angular design was considered too radical and Giampaolo Benedini was tasked to soften the design into what we now know as the EB110. The mid-engine sports car houses a technologically advanced 3.5 litre 12-cylinder engine, further enhanced by four turbochargers, producing over 550 brake horsepower and weighing just 1620kg, accelerating to 60mph in 3.4 seconds and reaching a top speed of 212.5mph (342km/h). The aluminium body panels are bonded to a carbon fibre monocoque chassis; the EB110 was the first road car to feature this technique. The car also possessed active aerodynamics and an all-wheel drive system, also scarcely used in the automotive industry at the time.
This became the basic framework for Bugatti’s 1994 Le Mans contender, after a lengthy 55-year absence from the legendary track. Next to the ‘Dauer’ Porsche, the Bugatti proved fastest in practice and entered the race with drivers Alain Cudini, Le Mans winner Éric Hélary and Jean-Christophe Bouillon. Despite an impressive performance, the EB110 needed all four of its turbos replaced during the morning session and dropped well down the rankings. The team’s race came to an end during the dying laps when a tyre blowout threw Bouillon into the barriers on the Mulsanne Straight.
