Introduced in 1991, the Bugatti EB 110 celebrates its 30th anniversary in 2021. It's an important milestone for the car that brought the Bugatti badge into the modern era, paving the way for the record-setting Veyron and Chiron.
And even though it's been almost 25 years since it was discontinued, the EB 110 continues to draw attention everywhere it shows up. We usually see the EB 110 driven by celebrities such as Doug DeMuro, but now it's time to watch the French-Italian supercar rev its fabulous quad-turbo V12 engine on the dyno.

I have no idea why this pristine Bugatti showed up at Biesse Racing for a dyno run, but it doesn't even matter. What's important is that the testing session sees the mill hit its 8,700-rpm redline. Something you won't hear happen on a public road or the race track. And it's a feast for the ears since the EB 100's V12 engine starts roaring like a race-spec unit once it goes past 4,000 rpm.

Built from 1991 to 1995, the EB 110 was the first new Bugatti in almost 40 years. The supercar was developed by Bugatti Automobili S.p.A., a company established by Italian entrepreneur Romano Artioli, who acquired the Bugatti brand in 1987.

Powered by a quad-turbo, 3.5-liter V12 engine, the EB 100 debuted with 553 horsepower, but Bugatti also launched a Super Sport variant with 603 horses. At the time of its introduction, it was among the fastest and most powerful cars in dealerships.

A race-spec version of the EB 110, dubbed LM, raced in the 1994 24 Hours of Le Mans, marking the brand's return to motorsport after five decades. The car failed to finish the endurance event. Three decades since it was unveiled, the EB 110 is already a classic, with pristine examples valued at around $1 million a pop.

But enough history for today, hit the play button below to see and hear the EB 110 rev its V12 engine to mind-boggling speeds. There's also driving and onboard footage to keep you entertained.
