A 1995 Bugatti EB110 Super Sport has just gone on sale in the U.K. Immaculately presented in the best possible color, the car even comes with a matched pair of suitcases.

The EB110 was first introduced on September 15 1991, exactly 110 years after Ettore Bugatti’s birth. The Marcello Gandini-designed supercar was powered by a 3.5-liter V-12, with five valves per cylinder, and no less than four turbochargers. The V-12, when it eventually came on boost, sent 553 hp to all four wheels through a six-speed manual transmission.

The Super Sport that followed in 1992 saw engines tweaks, a new ECU and a different exhaust hike power to 612 hp, while around 300 pounds of mass was removed by using carbon-kevlar body panels. The Super Sport would accelerate from 0-60 mph in 3.26 seconds and outrun its rivals from Porsche or Ferrari by topping out at 221 mph. This was, quite simply, the fastest car of its day.

This 1995 example is faster still as it was upgraded with an additional 20 hp before being delivered to its original Swiss owner, who also had the seat raised nearly an inch, added a fire extinguisher and that all-important luggage set to to match the grey leather interior.

The car has spent its life in the hands of a racing driver in Barcelona, Spain, and with owners in Monaco and Austria. In 2019 the car took part in a grand union at the Campogalliano factory. It’s now sitting in the showroom of DK Engineering near London ready for its next keeper to take it on a proper grand tour.
