B.Engineering Edonis

Before the Veyron and P1, there was B Engineering Edonis, based on an extensively re-engineered Bugatti EB110 Super Sport. The only major component retained from the original Bugatti is the carbon-fiber chassis. Both the exterior and interior of the car were completely redesigned. The 3.5L Bugatti engine had its displacement increased from 3500 cc to 3760 cc. The original four small IHI turbochargers were replaced by two larger units from the same manufacturer. Engine power was boosted from 610hp and 479 lb-ft of torque to 671hp @ 8000rpm and 542 lb-ft. The company planned to manufacture 21 vehicles from chassis sourced from Bugatti by Aerospatiale, and expected to sell for around €760,000 ($1.01-million USD today).

In addition, the 4WD triple-differential drivetrain from the original Bugatti was replaced with a much simpler and lighter RWD transaxle, thus saving approximately 70 kg from total weight. These power figures give the 1500 kg Edonis a power-to-weight ratio of 480 bhp/ton. In addition, the engine’s specific power output is an unprecedented 181 bhp/liter. The brand claims a maximum speed of 365 km/h (227 mph), while accelerating from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.9 seconds.
