Supercar Legends From 1990s [Part 1]: Video
Now here’s a YouTube series we can really get behind. Supercar Driver TV’s new series focuses on legendary supercars from the 1990s, and the Bugatti EB110 SS is the subject of the first episode. As the predecessor to the Veyron, the Bugatti EB110 was first built in 1991 when Italian businessman Romano Artioli ran the company, seven years before the Volkswagen acquisition.
As is apparent in the video, it’s still very quick, even by today’s standards. Its tiny yet powerful, quad-turbo, 3.5-liter V-12 sends 552 horsepower to all four wheels, while the lighter, more powerful EB110SS (seen here) produces 603 horsepower. The SS will do 0-60 in 3.2 seconds and has a top speed of 216 mph. Not bad, considering it debuted nearly 15 years before the Veyron. It was outstanding to drive too, so good that even seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher owned one.
And just case anyone at Supercar Driver TV is reading this and trying to come up with a few more obscure 1990s supercars to cover, we would love to see a Cizetta V16 or TVR Cerbera Speed 12 in the mix, but we won’t get picky.
