THE BUGATTI EB110

Forty years after the death of Ettore Bugatti in 1947, the once legendary moribund brand, one of the most famous in the history of the automobile, was bought by the ambitious Italian businessman Romano Artioli, whose aim was to resurrect Bugatti as a state-of-the-art supercar. Artioli chooses Modena, the city of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and Maserati to build its modern factory who's first finished series car was released in 1992. Called EB 110 (for its debut 110 years after the birth of Ettore), it was the first new Bugatti since 1950. Everything on the car was designed from a blank sheet of paper, the Bugatti EB110 was the first production car in the world to utilize carbon chassis. Not only was it lighter than an alloy chassis, but it was also twice as strong. French space and airplane specialist, Aerospatiale built the chassis for the EB's. The body was done in aluminum to save weight and ending up weighing in at only 3400lbs - for a V12, 4WD supercar this is an accomplishment in itself. It was crucial for Artioli that the EB's would be built just like Ettore would have done, and therefore weight, drivability, and performance were some of the keywords all through the process.

The Bugatti EB 110 was designed by none other than the engineer Paolo Stanzani and the stylist Marcello Gandini, co-creators of some of the world most iconic cars. Under the bodywork, it added five valves per cylinder, four turbos, a six-speed gearbox, and four-wheel drive! Despite its complexity, the EB 110 worked well on the road with its compact dimensions combined with four-wheel drive giving it exceptional agility, excellent grip and a good balance in all circumstances. The 3.5-liter V12 engine developed over 550hp, with a top speed of 340 kilometers an hour, a figure recorded on Italy's Nardo test track, which put the EB 110 on top as one of the worlds fastest. Unfortunately for Artioli and his associates, the EB 110 was launched just at the time of the recession of the early 1990s and the company went into liquidation in 1994. It is estimated that only 139 of these exotic cars were built, Michael Schumacher being probably the best known of its owners.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Production of this supercar began in May 1993 and was completed at the beautiful Campogalliano based factory by the end of that July. The official delivery was scheduled for August 30th, 1993 to a German customer, Mr. Walter Eder; though apparently the delivery was slightly delayed due to an elderly lady causing minor damage to the front of the EB110 with her microcar. The factory easily remedied the situation and re-finished the front wing before the car was delivered. According to the Bugatti EB 110 register, the factory or the local German Bugatti distributor borrowed chassis 033GT for the Frankfurt International motor show in September 1993. The car was exhibited on the Bugatti stand, next to the EB112 39001 and of the Supersport SS39005 prototype. In July 1997, the car was acquired by Alberto Di Garnerone with only 9,000 kilometers (copy of sales contract and Italian registration document are on file). After 15 years in Italy, the Bugatti was sold in August 2012 with 14,900 kilometers. The car would be kept in the South of France where it was serviced at P3 Automobiles before the owner took the Bugatti to Scandinavia in February 2013. Under the Scandinavian ownership, the Bugatti has lived as a centerpiece in an extensive collection and has been serviced and preserved in ideal conditions. The most recent service was just completed in 2018 (service receipts on file).

Now nearly 30 years later, the EB110 is recognized as one of the world's most sought-after supercars. Everything on the EB110 was engineered and tested extensively, they are built to last and offer great usability and reliability. As with all true Bugatti's the EB110 is accepted and welcomed by the Bugatti Club of America for a number of exclusive tours and rallies. 2019 marks 110 years for Bugatti as a car manufacturer; among the many celebrations that will take place around the iconic brand, Jay Leno is going to be celebrating in January with a full episode of Jay Lenos Garage dedicated to the EB110, where he does an extensive review and drive with this very car. In the spring of 2019, an EB110 rally with Bugatti-owners from all over the world is taking place in Italy, and chassis 033GT is already signed up for the event and can be taken there if the new owner wishes to partake in the incredible event.

At the time of cataloging, the current odometer reading is that of only 10,800 miles (17,200km). With its exceptional and iconic livery, thorough service history, and fantastic provenance, this is a phenomenal example of the seldom seen Bugatti. Chassis 033 GT is offered on a US title and is accompanied by its books, toolkit, and service receipts, including the recent 2018 service of nearly $30,000. With only 139 EB110s having been produced over the model run, they are one of the world's rarest and most desirable supercars. As their popularity continues to increase, so does the support network for the cars through both Bugatti and marque specialists. Whether a Bugatti collector or supercar connoisseur, an EB110 is a must have; with the extreme rarity and exceptionalism of 033GT, one would be hard pressed to find a better example.
