The Bugatti EB110 is enjoying a wave of attention these days, which is only normal, given that its maker paid homage to it via the Centodieci. But just how fierce was the 90s hypercar?
Well, we can now answer that question by zooming in on a drag races that sees the Bug duking it out with a Lamborghini Diablo.

The Italian-built toys (the old Bugatti factory that brought the EB110 to life was located in Campogalliano, not Molsheim, remember?) got together during an event called Supercar Owners Circle.

We're looking at a velocity gathering that took place in Andrematt, Switzerland, with the line-up being one of the most exotic in the world, at least for a drag racing event.

Note that the EB110 we have here is the GT model, not the even-sharper SS. Nevertheless, this means the hp battle is pretty even.

So while we can't be sure of this Diablo's spec, it delivers about the same output as the Bugatti, whose hp number sits at 560 hp. Then again, while the speed tools we're talking about both pack V12s, these have different ways of generating the go.

To be more precise, while the Raging Bull is animated by a naturally aspirated 6.0-liter unit (however, the pre-facelift models came with a 5.7L engine), the Bugatti comes with a quad-turbo 3.5-liter V12.

Now, while you'll get to see the Bugatti EB110 duking it out with the Lamborghini Diablo at the 0:27 point of the clip, the rest of the video is certainly worthy of one's undivided attention. For one thing, the machines that go sprinting also include names such as the Dallara Stradale and the Ferrari F50 (if this isn't a double "yay".

Heck, this is the same event that saw a Bugatti Chiron Grand Sport Vitesse battling a Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
