Bugatti EB110 Crashed In Moscow

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]

The EB110 was always a mystery to me as a kid. It looked cool and had world-beating specs, yet no one but me (in my little world) seemed to covet it. My school chums (I was 11 in '91) were all about the Ferraris and Lambos, but hadn't even heard of Bugatti. I can't blame them, though. There were no posters of it in the bookstore, it was never in the movies (please correct me here), there was no Micro Machine EB110. In fact, I think I first learned about it from from a Motor Trend daily calendar, where it was just one more obscure car used to fill up a day page.

As a result, it's perhaps the most mythical supercar out there in my mind.

I would say the same about the XJ220, except I actually saw and touched one of those at a concours show a few years back.
