Default Bugatti’s EB110 VS Bugatti Veyron,





Quote:
Bugatti’s EB110 was considered the ultimate supercar of its day. The Veyron still holds that title now. So what happens when the two meet?
Autocar’s Richard Bremner went to find out, and you can see the stunning pictures from the ultimate twin test by clicking on the link below.


Bugatti Veyron,” says Bremner. “Born 2005. Engineered in Germany by Volkswagen. Built in France. Legendary for its sledgehammer spec, for costing over £1 million plus taxes, for its 252mph top speed and 2.5sec 0-60mph time.


Bugatti EB110. Born 1991. Engineered in Italy by an elite group of designers and technicians. Legendary for its sledgehammer spec, for reviving the defunct Bugatti name and for Michael Schumacher’s lengthy ownership of a SuperSport.
“But while both might wear Bugatti logos and prove an unlikely spot in a supermarket car park, do the EB110 and Veyron really have so much in common? They come from unrelated enterprises, one defunct, the other flourishing. Their styling is tangentially linked at best and their prices and performance are separated by a gulf as big as the one you’ll find between an Audi TT RS and an R8 V10.
“Yet they have more in common than you’d imagine. Both are built around carbonfibre tubs, are powered by generously cylindered, multi-valve, midship-mounted vee engines whose substantial muscle is boosted by a quartet of turbochargers.
“Both have four-wheel drive and each was created with the aim of building the ultimate supercar of the era. In its day, the EB110 was compared with the Ferrari F40, the Porsche 959 and the Jaguar XJ220.”
Bremner enjoyed the old school charm of the EB110, while he also enjoyed the secure platform it provided from which its awesome power could be unleashed. The Veyron, meanwhile, was found to be well mannered and secure, with the biggest challenge being resisting the urge to plant its milled aluminium accelerator at every moment.

That is heat shielding wrap, not welded steel, FYI, the actual pipes are probably much nicer.

This kind of response is why automakers insist on putting ridiculous amounts of plastic shrouding and trim over the true mechanical items in engine bays. I look at the two engine bays and have the exact opposite view from yours, the EB110 does not try to hide anything with pointless dressup items.

And yes, that's heat shielding material on those pipes.

By clean you mean all covered with plastic! You can't see any part of the Veyron's engine in that 'engine' picture.

I wonder if this is a Dauer or one of the original EB110 SS's.

Also, EB110 > Veyron.

I love both.
Wasn't the XJ220 considered the top dog supercar of the time until the McLaren came to?

I wouldn't say an exposed engine is ugly, but that's a personal thing. Just keep the hood closed if you're ashamed.

Has it ever occured to you that the EB110 actually has an engine lid while the Veyron's engine is left out in the open without a lid, kind of needs some dressup items to cover up the engine.

Yes it has, but whats the excuse for 99% of the production cars sold today that have large amounts of un-needed dressup plastic in the engine bay? (Especially VW/Audi)

Some people find beauty in the exposed mechanical items, not molded plastic covering it up. Personal preference I suppose, but I dont think "10 years of technology" is the reason for the esthetic differences. Back to the cars all of us can afford, does anyone enjoy removing tons of plastic cladding to work on their cars?

I'm with this guy ^^

Show me sexy flowing pipes, wire harnesses, fuse blocks, and serpentine belts. I don't want to see a sheet of plastic molding.

I can completely understand though, you want to minimize the possibility of someone doing something stupid, so you minimize their ability to see or do anything when they open their hood. they see a big yellow dipstick, and big yellow oil cap, a big blue washer spray cap and that's it! nothing else to confuse people!
