But there’s one particular model that kicked it all off – the real ‘OG’ if you like – and it’s almost been forgotten about.
The model in question is the Bugatti EB 110.
32 years ago, the French automaker unveiled the EB 110, the super sports cars of the 1990s, heralding not only a new era, but also paving way for the modern hyper sports car.
With its dramatic styling, scissor doors, and whole lot of power, the grand unveiling attracted 2,000 guests to the presentation in Paris, among them big names from the worlds of film, sport, and current affairs.
A lone Bugatti EB 110 S drove down the Champs Élysées on what was the 110th anniversary of Ettore Bugatti’s birth, as a bow to one of the most brilliant design engineers in automotive history.
So, what made the Bugatti EB 110 so iconic?
Aside from its design, the EB 110 combined a powerful V12 engine, four turbochargers with intercoolers, an ultra-lightweight carbon monocoque, all-wheel drive, and two differentials for the first time.
The EB 110 was entirely in a league of its own.
The supercar accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (0-62 mph) in just 3.26 seconds in its quickest form, making it the fastest production automobile of its time.
It can hit a top speed of 351 km/h (218 mph), which again was a world record for a production sports car.
The EB 110 also boasts a whole range of advanced equipment, too – something which was not a given among its contemporaries.
These include power steering, electric seat adjustment, air conditioning, a high-quality sound system, and central locking.
The price of the now historical vehicle has increased significantly in recent years, from around $300,000 in 2011 to in the region of $3 million today.
