The Bugatti EB 112 is the stillborn concept 4-door fastback saloon unveiled and displayed by Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. in 1993. The EB 112 is equipped with a V12 engine producing 450 horsepower (335 kW) and a permanent four-wheel drive system designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro of Italdesign.

History of the Bugatti EB 112

In March of 1993, during the Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti unveiled the EB 112. The unique design was met with both praise and criticism. Despite this, Automobile magazine dubbed it "The most beautiful car in the world" upon its debut. To meet the demand for a full-size saloon version of their EB 110 sports vehicle, Bugatti S.p.A. hired Italdesign's Giorgetto Giugiaro. The resulting EB 112 was a four-door fastback saloon with a retro design evocative of classic Bugattis like the famous Type 57 Galiber. The chassis used carbon fiber and was also used in the EB 110, which meant the entire body was constructed of aluminum. The Bugatti EB 112 was a stillborn concept car. Therefore, its production and show-car completion took place at the factory. Gildo Pallanca Pastor bought some of Bugatti Automobili S.p.A.'s assets after the company declared bankruptcy in 1995. Bugatti included 3 incomplete EB 112 saloons and various spare parts in the assets. Two of them were finished by his Monaco-based company the same year. There were multiple iterations of 4-door automobiles based on the EB 112's platform. The EB 218 is the first option; it has a larger frame and a more powerful W18 engine. The second was a concept luxury saloon called the 16C Galibier, which was created in 2009.


The EB 112 never gained enough momentum to go into production for various reasons, including the fact that its production version was expected to cost more than $2 million.

Features of the Bugatti EB 112

The fastback silhouette of the EB 112 is reminiscent of its forebears, and the smooth transition from the roof to the bumper in the back isn't going to fool anyone who notices the similarities. One of the early concepts of sports sedans or fastbacks nowadays was this over coupe-profile in a saloon configuration. The iconic chrome grille in the shape of a horseshoe has been a constant throughout the history of Bugatti cars and is easily the most recognizable design cue. The inside also features classic design cues, with plenty of leather upholstery and briarwood accents. The Bugatti EB 112 was an early example of the kind of high-end sports automobile that could and would be produced in the future thanks to its groundbreaking blend of exceptional road performance, refinement, and elegance.
