Remember the nugget of pure awesome that was the Bugatti EB110 ? Don’t worry if you don’t, as likely three-quarters of the world doesn’t remember the short-lived predecessor to the Veyron, which saw only 139 examples from 1991 through 1995. If you don’t remember that then you definitely don’t remember the lighter and more powerful EB110 Super Sport that was available in 1992.
For those that don’t know of it, the 1992 EB110 SS pumped 603 horsepower from its 3.5-liter V-12 engine. It blasted from 0-to-100 km/h (62 mph) in only 3.2 seconds and had a top speed of 348 km/h (216 mph). All of this during the dark ages of the supercar, the early 1990s. To put this in perspective, the Lamborghini Diablo could only muster up 425 horsepower, hit 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and had a 202 mph top speed. So, yeah, the EB110 SS was bad-ass.
Because of how rare it is, you will likely never see one in person, let alone see one do a burn out and be driven like a real supercar. Well, we’re here to give you that once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, through the power of interweb video!
The above video is chock-full of awesome tire smoldering, hard driving and all sorts of sweet small displacement V-12 engine noises. Kick back, crank up the volume, and enjoy!
