There are some things that seemed destined to be under-rated or under appreciated. Perhaps they just didn’t come along at the right time or place. Or they were over-shadowed by what came before or after. The perfect example of this is probably the presidency of one Dwight D. Eisenhower. His time in the white house seems like a bucolic period book-ended by his heroic turn as general of the allied forces and the dynamism of the Kennedy administration.

But as President, we hardly know him. Yet he presided over an expansion of the our economic, military and political power that no president before or since can match.

I realize this may seem like a very long-winded introduction to AUTO art’s Signature model of the Bugatti EB110 GT, but there is a method in my madness. You see in the EB 110 both the Bugatti heritage, the T35, the Atlantic, the Royale and what came after, notably the Veyron. All of those models are quite a bit more famous. Yet, the EB 110 was perhaps nearly as great an achievement as any of those more famous cousins. Named for Ettore Bugatti and launched in honor of his 110th birthday, it was the first Bugatti automobile produced in over forty years, launched by Romano Artioli who purchased the Bugatti name and set up shop in Modena, Italy to re-launch the legendary marque.

To design the Bugatti EB-110, Artioli hired Marcello Gandini, legendary Bertone creative genius of the Lamborghini Countach and it’s probably not a surprise that it shares some of the design elements, notably the scissor doors which open on the model are the best yet engineered by AUTO art, being triggered by a barely notable tab on each door, they spring to life on metal hinges and close with incredibly tight shut lines. Another Lamborghini trait is the mid-engine and fortunately for us, this was before such beasts were covered almost entirely by modesty panels. The opening engine compartment again features well engineered metal hinging and displays perhaps AUTO art’s best engine modeling on a non-racing car ever, the 12V 3.5 lire turbo engine with unique Bugatti blue piping, full wiring and signature valve covers.

There are several features found on the Bugatti’s that follow the EB 110, the Chrion and the Veyron, such as the cat-like stance and a spoiler which can be displayed deployed or retracted and Bugatti’s past like the disc wheels made famous on the Atlantic. On the track, the EB110 keeps up with it’s older sibling the Veyron rather well, given its carbon fibre anabolic body, a unique combination that makes it rigid and light. In fact the EB 110 raced at LeMans and crack the top ten before mechanical difficulties did it in. That Michael Schumacher owned one should impress you.

As a collector, I’m glad to see this car finally get its due. It was remarkable when built and for years we’ve only had a boxy Bburago version to display. Now comes a premium version via the AUTO art signature line, that captures the car’s noble character with the attention to detail like a parts count sits at a whopping 346, of which some 32 photo etched parts and of course all the other benefits of AUTO art’s craft such as crystal clear windows, opening features galore, detailed lighting, beautiful badging and paint that is seems deeper than the ocean. All in marvelous metal that feels solid because it is.… Even the interior door sills are elaborate and while the rest of the interior isn’t much it never was.

This car was built to satisfy a need…for speed. And AUTO art’s model of the Bugatti EB-110, like the car, can go right up there with the best supercars of all time.
