Let's be honest. We don't really care when a Lamborghini Gallardo or Ferrari 612 catches on fire, but this? This is different. Destroying a Bugatti EB110 should be punishable by death. Unfortunately, it's pretty safe.
The accident happened during an event for
wealthy organized criminals bad drivers supercar enthusiasts in Moscow on what appears to be a closed road. Wait, are we suggesting that political favors can are exchanged for rubbles dollars in Russia? No, not us Mr. Putin. Sir.
Launched in 1991 to celebrate the 110th anniversary of Ettore Bugatti's birth, the EB110 is a mid-engined supercar powered by a quad-turbo, triple-differential 3.5-liter V12 with 542 HP and AWD. Back then, in the age of lightweight cars (the EB110 weighed 3,560 Lbs), that was enough for a 0-62 time of 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 213 MPH. Somehow, we don't think this one will ever see those kinds of speeds ever again. [via Fishki.net]
