You might recognize Gandini’s name from the article on the Cizeta V16T, or perhaps from his having designed the Lamborghini
Miura, Countach and the original version of the Diablo. A new state-of-the-art factory was built in Campogalliano, Italy, to build the car, and if it isn’t already obvious, this was to be a much more Italian-influenced incarnation of Bugatti. But that’s fine, there are obviously plenty of amazing cars to come from Italy. And although he was a naturalized French citizen, Ettore Bugatti himself was born in Milan. The car adopted his initials EB and coupled them with the number 110 in reference to the 110th anniversary of Ettore’s birth.
