The last Bugatti EB110 SS built as Bugatti went bankrupt in the 1990s is up for sale in London with Max Girado’s Girardo & Co.
If you think of Bugatti, you think of either its modern hypercars like the Veyron and Chiron, or you think of its storied history and cars like the Type 35 or the Royale. But there is another part to Bugatti’s history.
In 1987 Bugatti Automobili S.p.A arrived and, until its demise in the mid-900s, built the Bugatti EB110 – and the more powerful EB110 SS – a car so special it was Michael Schumacher’s pick of the available supercars at the time.
Now, the last EB110 SS built at the Bugatti factory – and sold off by the liquidators – is up for sale at Girardo & Co, a London car brokers founded by Max Girardo, a man you may know better as the face of RM Auction in the UK and Europe for years.
This EB110 SS was built in 1995 and registered to Bugatti, sold off by the liquidators in 1997 to a Luxembourg company and then sold to the current Italian owner in 2003 with just 700 miles on the clock.
Only around 30 EB110 SS models were built, with 610bhp from its 3.5 litre V12 thanks to new injectors, tweaked ECU and less restrictive exhaust, less weight with Carbon and Kevlar in the mix, all conspiring to get the EB110 SS to 62mph in just 3.26 seconds.
Girardo & Co aren’t saying how much they want for this EB110 SS, but it will be seven figures. But it is a proper piece of Bugatti history, and a properly impressive, and rare, supercar.
