The Edonis is a car created by Italian automobile manufacturer B Engineering.
It is based on the Bugatti EB110 Super Sport but has been extensively
re-engineered. About the only thing retained from the original Bugatti is the
carbon-fiber chassis. Both the exterior and interior of the car have been
completely redesigned. The 3.5 liter Bugatti engine has had its displacement
increased from 3500 cc to 3760 cc. The original four small IHI turbochargers
have been replaced by two larger units from the same manufacturer. Engine power
has been boosted from 610 hp DIN (448 kW) and 650 Nm (479 ft·lbf) of torque to
680 hp DIN (500 kW) at 8000 rpm and 735 Nm (539 ft·lbf).
In addition, the 4WD triple-differential drivetrain from the original Bugatti
has been replaced with a much simpler and lighter RWD transaxle, thus saving
approximately 70kg from total weight. These power figures give the 1500kg 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.
B Engineering plan to build only 21 vehicles from chassis originally built for
Bugatti by Aerospatiale (Most of the remaining chassis delivered to Bugatti
prior to their bankruptcy were delivered to Jochen Dauer when he purchased the
assets of the company).
