B Engineering Edonis (Bugatti EB110)
When the Italian resurrection of Bugatti went belly-up (we know, whoever would’ve seen that coming?) the company’s engineers and designers thought, rightfully, it’d be a frightful waste of chassis, engines and expertise not yet combined to produce Bugatti’s four-wheel drive, quad-turbo, 600bhp riposte to the Jaguar XJ220 and Ferrari F40.
So, they bandied together and spawned the bizarre B Engineering Edonis, which was rarer, lighter and two hundred per cent more dangerous, because of two things. Firstly, B Engineering removed the front driveshafts so it was only rear-wheel drive. Secondly, they binned the four small turbos and fitted two big’uns, lifting power to almost 700bhp. God bless the ’90s. And Italian logic.
Wonder why they’ve not had a crack at the same recipe with a Chiron. Anyone?
