This german resurrection of the EB110 is an update of the Campogalliano's Bugatti. In 1997, Dauer has bought during the auction in the Campogalliano factory a large amount of parts, 6 nude chassis and 4 unfinished cars left on the EB110 assembly line.
From my own data, Dauer has bought 18 engines (but only 14 with a certificate) and 6 blank chassis.
It seems that the first task of Dauer was to finish uncompleted cars still present on the assembly line at the moment of bankruptcy. These "reprocessed" EB110 are badged with the Bugatti logo and looks like closely to standard models except some details:
- the special Dauer panel between rear lights, with the 6 upper holes moved on corners to let a place for a central Bugatti logo,
- GT inner doors for SS models, with power windows (except the SS 29),
- special leather color for SS 36,
an uncomplete US body shape for the SS 29.
One GT prototype (GT 012) was refurbished and 3 SS (SS24, SS29 and SS36) were finished in Nuremberg, between 1999 and 2000, fitted with Bugatti logos.
In 2001-2002, Dauer has assembled 5 new models based on US chassis, called "Dauer 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 (full carbon fiber body), tuned engine with 645 bhp (optional 705 bhp with sport exhaust and modified ECU), gas-flow improvement, 322 mm 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 glove box. Quilted leather covered the sills, transmission tunnel and even the floor, color-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.
In 2005, another car was used by Dauer, for a Maurer complete paint job, in the Art Cars theme. This car still need to be identified.
In the past years, and still actually, another chassis is under construction. This car is using the papers and chassis number from the original SS36. Thus, the car is called SS36-2.
