Mention the name Bugatti and almost everyone will utter the name Veyron. We can’t blame them either since the Veyron was the first production car to have a power output of over 1000-hp, and in its Super Sport guise managed to hit 268-mph, making it the fastest production car in the world.
The Veyron is quite a phenomenal car, but before it, there was another Bugatti that was appearing on the cover of car magazines all over the world. It was called the EB110, and it was one of the fastest and most advanced cars of the 1990s.
The EB110 was built when the company was resurrected by an Italian businessman, Romano Artioli. During his ownership of the brand, many concept cars were made, but only the EB110 ever made it to production. However, there were two models of the EB110, the GT which had 552-hp, and the SS which had 650-hp. According to its brochure, the 3.5-liter, V12, quad-cam, quad-turbo EB110SS could launch from 0-60 mph in just 2.8 seconds and hit 217 mph flat out.
The GT version was slightly slower but had more creature comforts, while the SS was lighter and had fewer amenities. However, if you asked nicely – or paid generously, you could have the mixture of the two, and these cars are extremely rare. But they exist and we have found one such example in glamorous Dubai.
This bright red sled has covered just 324-miles since its birth in 1995, and looks to be very well stored. As for the price, the website didn’t mention, but we made the call and found out it’s a very reasonable $500,000. A bargain compared to a new Veyron SS, which will set you back $2.4-million.
Since it is Christmas time, we can’t think of a better present than this EB110. Aren’t we easy to shop for?

So while many people will never get the chance to get behind the wheel of this magnificent, 268 mph machine, you could actually get paid to spend time with this car – provided you get selected.
This position is open to any currently enrolled college or university student and requires the candidate to work at least 20 hours a week, have excellent computer skills, with an emphasis given to Word, Excel and Microsoft Office programs.
Oh, and one more thing, a general knowledge of the vehicle would also help your chances to land this dream internship.
So if you read about this available position here on AutoGuide, and end up getting this gig, do send us a Veyron for a week as a thank you.

The send-off for the world’s most awesome car has to be fitting for something a car that costs in the millions of dollars, (never mind its awesome performance), and Bugatti knows that the final edition of their Veyron supercar has to measure up. Another special edition with different paint and a cool name won’t cut it any more, so Bugatti is apparently working on a final edition of the Veyron, known as the SuperSport.
The SuperSport is expected to live up to its name by packing an extra 20o horsepower, losing 660 pounds and hitting 60 mph in a mere 2.2 seconds, with a top speed of 264 mph. If reports are accurate, only 30 examples will be built, at a cost of $1.8 million USD, and they’ve probably been sold already, even though the car isn’t expected to debut until the Paris Auto Show in September.
