Al Motor Valley Festival of Modena celebrates the return of a legend from the 90s. Twenty-five years after the last presence on Modena soil, here it is Bugatti EB112a luxurious testimony of the brand’s past, active with the Campogalliano factory between 1987 and 1995.
The elegant flagship is on display until Sunday 14 May in Largo Porta Sant’Agostino in Modena and is curated by former company employees and volunteers ready to explain the model and tell anecdotes about the history of Bugatti “Made in Italy”.
Born shortly after the EB110 (the iconic supercar that celebrated the 110th anniversary of the birth of the founder of the House Ettore Bugatti), the EB112 was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in March 1993. The shapes of the flagship are substantially different from those of the super sports car, with a design conceived by Giorgetto Giugiaro typically of a 4-door fastback and inspired by models from the 1930s.

The Bugatti has titanic dimensions for the time, with a length of 5.07 meters, a width of 1.96 m and a height of 1.41 m. The engine is also colossal, a 6 liter V12 inherited from the 456 HP and 649 Nm EB110 which manages to push the EB112 from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds and to reach the maximum speed of 300 km/h.
The one present in the exhibition “EB112 – The sedan remained a dream” (curated by the historical and cultural association “Bugatti Automobili Campogalliano APS) is one of the only three specimens remained. The production of the Bugatti, in fact, began a few months before the House declared bankruptcy. Since then, the brand has never presented a sedan again, other than the 2009 16C Galibier concept which has remained just a prototype.
