Last year we undertook the arduous task of identifying every car in Jay Leno’s collection. The cars are just the tip of the iceberg, as Mr. Leno also has an impressive collection of motorcycles, dealer signs, and rare engines. Because he owns a pristine V12, he decided to see how it performs on the street. So sit back and watch Jay Leno drive a 1993 Bugatti EB110.
Unveiled in September of 1991, the EB110 was named to celebrate Ettore Bugatti’s 110th birthday. It is powered by a quad-turbo 3.5L V12. It used individual throttle bodies to make 592 horsepower and 470 lb-ft of torque. This is sent to all wheels by a six-speed manual transmission. The owner of the company also decided to buy Lotus from GM, but he bit off more than he could chew.
Only 139 examples of the car were built before the cash ran out. Volkswagen bought the defunct company and began work on the Veyron in 1998. We’ll cover this story in-depth at a later date, so click the link below to find a quad-turbo beast for yourself and stay with us for all your updates from Jay Leno’s Garage.
