This german resurrection
of the EB110 is an update of the Campogalliano's Bugatti. In 1997, Dauer
has bought during an auction a large amount of parts, chassis and unfinished
cars left at the Bugatti factory.
It seems that the first task of Dauer was to finish uncompleted cars,
still present on the assembly line at the moment of bankruptcy. The
problem with these "reprocessed" EB110 is that some of them
are quite impossible to identify as Dauer's model because identical
to Campogalliano's EB110, except the VIN number. Some differences appears
with other models, like GT inner door, complete GT interior, or US body
shape. Perhaps 1 GT and 3 SS were finished in Nuremberg, between 2001
and 2002, fitted with Bugatti logos.
In 2002, Dauer has assembled 5 new models based on US chassis, called
EB110 S, fitted with the Dauer logo. These cars could be considered
like the best and fastest EB110 ever produced due to numerous modifications
and upgrades : 200 kg reduced body weight (all carbon fibre body), tuned
engine with 645 bhp (optional 705 bhp with sport exhaust and modified
ECU), gas-flow improvement, 322mm brake discs with four-pot Brembo calipers.
Carbon was also used for new one-piece inner fenders and the rear bulkhead.
Based on the simpler SS interior, Dauer's EB110's all came equipped
with the SS bucket seats, three-spoke steering wheel, transmission tunnel
and dash without glovebox. Quilted leather covered the sills, transmission
tunnel and even the floor, colour-matching hide also being used for
the dash, instrument binnacle, steering wheel, gearshift, windscreen
pillars and door trim. The cockpit was much better finished than before
and all five cars came with a combined Kenwood satellite navigation,
DVD and TV system. A lot of new equipments may vary from one model to
another ; GPS aerial, chromed rims, front licence plate support, 4 pipes
exhaust system, reversing radar...etc.
At last, a 6th car was built, perhaps in 2005, with unusual specifications
: 2WD, no windows, a special paint job. The car was perhaps a development
prototype for the Edonis.
