As you may be able to tell if you follow the content on this site, we quite like trawling the automotive listings from the most well-known auction houses to find interesting cars. Some gems pop up every now and then, but some definitely stand out more than others, like what you see here. This is a 1994 Bugatti EB110 GT, a legendary supercar that still impresses today, almost 30 years later. I was in high school when this car was released and I remember seeing it on the cover of many car magazines and not long after on bedroom and workshop walls around the world. The performance of this car was hard to imagine back then, even now it’s seriously impressive. The EB110 was powered by a relatively small capacity powerplant that measured in at just 3.5-litres, but it still had twelve cylinders in that space. To make it completely ridiculous, four turbochargers were added into the mix. It was thought that four smaller turbos would spool up quicker than a pair. To bump up the stakes, the 550 hp that it produced was fed to all four wheels via a 6-speed transmission. This means that it could hit 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds and had a top speed of 341 km/h. As expected, a supercar with stats like that wasn’t cheap, it sold for around £285,000 at the time. With inflation, that’s roughly £726,000 today - or R17 200,000 in our play money.
Take a look at the YouTube video that we're happy still exists. This is official footage from back in the 90s that was used to promote the iconic Bugatti EB110, one of the most insanely fast motoring creations that can still hold its own a good 30 years later. These supercars were only produced in limited numbers, less than 140 of them exist and that means on rarity alone it's worth mad money. We're guessing it will fetch the higher end of the sales estimation, this will be sought after by numerous collectors: Bugatti EB110 Original Factory Footage Bugatti EB110 Tribute Commercial Classic Bugatti Video Carjam | CARJAM TV
