1991 Bugatti EB110 GT - 209mph
Bit of a forgotten legend, this one - the EB110 had a carbon chassis built by aircraft company Aéropsatiale, double wishbone suspension all-round, and the endorsement of F1 hero Michael Schumacher, who bought a banana-yellow one.
But the EB110's party piece was a 3.5-litre 60-valve QUAD-turbo V12, powering all four wheels through a six-speed gearbox. It'd hit 62 mph in 4.2 seconds, and begin Bugatti's reign of the v-max kingdom with its top whack of 209 mph.
