Bugatti EB110 Super Sport once owned by Michael SchumacherEnlarge Photo
The Bugatti EB 110 was getting forced air pumped into its cylinders through four turbos long before the Bugatti Veyron was even conceived. The rare car was only produced between 1991 and 1995, with 139 examples throughout the world and this particular one is probably the most desirable.
The bright yellow Bugatti EB110 is a Super Sport version, one of 31, which produced 603 horsepower over the non-SS’s 553 hp. This allowed the car to accelerate to 62 mph in 3.2 seconds and reach a top speed of 216 mph. The car shifted through a six-speed manual gearbox and used an all-wheel-drive system. The chassis was built out of carbon fiber by the aircraft company Aérospatiale. It was said to be the easiest supercar to drive at the time of production.
What makes this 1994 example even more special are two traits. First, this car was originally purchased brand new by Formula One legend Michael Schumacher before his allegiance to Scuderia Ferrari in 1996. Cars with very famous previous owners, like Steve McQueen’s cars, tend to add value to supercars like these. The second reason is that it is the only factory SS to get the luxury interior. The SS got more of a stripped out interior, while the regular EB110 had a more luxurious cabin. While the blue interior, combined with the bright yellow exterior, might be a put off, it probably means this car combines the two cars well.
The car will cost its new owner $736,200, considerably more than a normal SS, which would go for about $200k-300k less. But keep this car in your garage for a couple of decades, and you should see that price increase ten-fold.
