The company makes a public stretch of imagination, spreading such teasers. In the background is the historical prototype.

The sixteenth of August, in the afternoon (California time) or evening (GMT) Bugatti will present their new limited-edition hypercar. His name is not disclosed. But the place premiere is not a secret: The Quail, a Motorsports Gathering in Carmel (part of a larger series of events Monterey Car Week). Yet we know that the car will emulate the shape of the famous supercar of the past — Bugatti EB110 (issued in 1991-1995), and in particular its variation SS (Super Sport).

Model EB110 was a mid-engined four-wheel drive. She used a 3.5 V12 engine with four turbochargers, posing on the source modification GT 560 HP and 611 nm, and the light version of SS (pictures) — 612 HP and 650 N•m transmission — six-speed “mechanics”.

This year, the company Bugatti is celebrating 110 years, and the reincarnation of the EB110 in some form — the perfect opportunity to decorate a series of celebrations a special model. In General, for the Bugatti EB110 it was in many ways a landmark car. After all, it was the first production car the company recovered in the late eighties after a huge break (the original firm created by Ettore Bugatti stopped the actual work in 1952). Besides, it is impossible not to note that the authorship of the original design EB110 belongs to the legendary Marcello Gandini.

And in General, EB110 for its time was an outstanding project. In the car used carbon fiber monocoque chassis and active aerodynamics. The SS version independent journalistic tests was overclocked to 351 km/h and developed a hundred in 3.3 seconds. One of the samples of SS were specifically built for Michael Schumacher, and the car was more comfortable interior from the variations of the GT. Another curious fact: one instance EB110 was transferred to CNG, which has developed 342 km/h (it was the fastest “gas lighter”).

We can only assume that the new model will lay the technical stuffing from the 1500-strong coupe Chiron, which has already managed to obtain several derived forms (Sport Chiron, Divo, 110 ans Bugatti and La Voiture Noire).

The original EB110 in all its modifications, prototypes and special versions were produced in quantities of less than a hundred Grand. Modern “EB110” will be much more rare. According to the seller of collectible cars Girado & Co, hypercar, which will show in California, will gather in the amount of ten pieces. Each will cost its future owner of eight million euros (590 million). If not all the circulation, some of it has already been sold, even before the declassification of the project.

Supplement

Pictures of the model EB110 Homage Centodieci leaked ahead of time. Confirmed Simonovski motor W16 8.0 (1500 HP 1600 N•m), acceleration up to hundreds for 2.4 seconds, top speed of 420 km/h.

The SUV U5 (pictured) has room to grow, but not so much in size (in length 4680 mm, and a basis 2800), how much battery capacity (65 kWh) and power reserve (503 km in the NEDC cycle). Only the electric motor produces 190 HP and 315 N•m — is also not the limit.

“New Chinese car company is ready to strike at the distant European continent,” writes the press of the PRC on the upcoming March 13 speech marks Aiways at the Geneva motor show. There is an electric SUV makes its debut Aiways U5 (in Europe) and U6 mysterious concept Ion (even the teaser yet). Very likely, it kupeobrazny version of the “ten-fifth” with a similar filling, but possible surprises. At the same time, Aiways will arrange a demonstration of smart technologies, introduce your partners and reveal the sales plan in the Old world.

Model U6 late, because already shown a prototype of crossway U7 (pictured). All electric cars of the brand is built on a modular platform MAS (McPherson and memorycache), endowed with the powertrain’s E-Drive and the beginnings of artificial intelligence.

Because the base Aiways U5 is estimated at 197 900 yuan (1.76 million rubles), it is easy to predict that the initial “coupe” U6 breaks out the level of 200 000. “The Geneva motor show will mark an important milestone for Aiways, as will be announced very exciting news about our plans for Europe. We are set up to compete with the best, creating a revolutionary user experience through unprecedented cooperation with partners”, — said the Vice-President for foreign operations Alexander Klose.

Ford bronco. Лобовое стекло установлено относительно близко к вертикали, форма передних крыльев и капота напоминает о линиях, присущих прежнему Bronco, особенно в восьмидесятых. Огромные накладки на крыше и задней стойке пока не позволяют оценить силуэт.

The windshield is installed relatively close to the vertical, the shape of the front wings and bonnet reminiscent of the lines inherent in the old Bronco, especially in the eighties. Huge overlays on the roof and the rear pillar does not yet allow us to estimate the silhouette.

Noticed a couple of days ago on the trials Ford Bronco Sport many of our readers upset. Famous name and is a compact SUV don’t mix. But that was because the Bronco Junior. And now arrived, and a large Ford Bronco. Real SUV on the frame. New pictures have revealed few details of the exterior and interior and suspension.

The lights made interesting: large circles with a rectangular sections in. In the history of the Bronco was round, and rectangular, so that continuity will work in any case. It’s funny that a camouflage painted thousands of tiny pictograms, symbolizing the active, among them the word “Bronco”.

Sources in the company have hinted that the big Bronco will be available in two body versions: two- (as the ancestor) and four-door (not counting the wicket Keeper or the side rear). A relative of a Ranger needs to supercharged engines 2.3 and 2.7, a six-speed “mechanics” and desjatilopastnye “automatic”. In an explicit competitors have Bronco listed Jeep Wrangler and Ford must answer him a decent variability. For example, the installation of the mirrors suggests that the door can be removed as the Jeep.

In the cabin — tubular frame overhead and, it seems, a removable roof section, the front panel and console with an almost vertical position. Tires — Bridgestone Dueler A/T 255/75 R17. See front wishbones, rear — rigid axle.

Liability on the Bronco 2021 model year is a big. The predecessor behind — long story: for five generations, and production from 1965 to 1996. The successor to the Americans have to show in spring, it is not excluded that already in April at the auto show in new York. But if I don’t reach it, that is, a reserve airfield in the auto show in Detroit in June. The simplest version of the “sixth” Bronco, according to the Motor1.com should cost approximately $33 000-35 000, sales will begin by the end of 2020.
