Rare Bugatti EB110 Spotted in Japan

Introduced in 1991, the Bugatti EB110 was the first car built in Molsheim after the company was revived by Romano Artioli. Although it's barely 22 years old, the EB110 is a rare sight nowadays with only about 126 examples built (95 GTs and 31 SS versions).
One of these rare gems was recently spotted in Tokyo, Japan, and the fact that's painted in the classic French blue makes it even more exciting. The EB110 GT looks in tip-top shape as far as the exterior is concerned, but we're certain everything else looks great as well.

What makes this car so special? Well, it's far from being impressive by design, but it was built like an authentic supercar. It doesn't have a monstrous 8.0-liter engine like the Veyron, but the 3.5-liter quad-turbo V12 offers impressive performance: 553 HP, 0-62 mph (100 km/h) in 4.2 seconds, top speed of 213 mph (343 km/h). The SS version, which was lighter and more powerful, had 603 HP and could reach 62 mph from a standing start in just 3.2 seconds, while top speed was rated at 216 mph (348 km/h). Not bad for the early 1990s, huh?

Just for facts: The Bugatti EB110 was entered in the 1994 Le Mans 24 Hours race by Michel Hommell, but it didn't manage to finish the famed event, retiring after 230 laps.
