Yes, Supercar again, I don't know but it seems like something in the blood; I build all kind of cars but I enjoy the most when building Supercars, and this one was no exception! The EB110 was one of my favorite Supercars when I was a kid, I had a scale model for it and I still have it, I can't say that it's my hardest build, yet some angles weren't easy to translate into LEGO... Any way here it is, hope you like it, thanks for visiting :)
About this creation
Bugatti was founded in Molsheim, then Germany, today France as a manufacturer of high performance automobiles by Ettore Bugatti, an Italian immigrant described as an eccentric genius.
The original company is legendary for producing some of the most exclusive cars in the world, as well as some of the fastest. The original Bugatti brand failed with the coming of World War II, like many high-end marques of the time. The death of Ettore's son Jean was also a contributory factor. The company struggled financially, and released one last model in the 1950s, before eventually being purchased for its airplane parts business in the 1960s. Today the name is owned by Volkswagen Group, who have revived it as a builder of limited production exclusive sports cars.
The Bugatti EB110 is a mid-engine sports car from Bugatti Automobili SpA, the 1990s successor to one of the most celebrated marques in automotive history. It was unveiled on September 15, 1991, in both Versailles and in front of the Grande Arche at La Défense in Paris, France, exactly 110 years after Ettore Bugatti's birth.
The overall view:
Shots for the car from the front and front-side.
A couple of shots for the car from the side.
And here're some pictures to show the car from the rear and the rear-side.
Some shots from the bird eyes ;)
The rear spoiler:
The real car has a working rear spoiler, so I had to figure out how to make one...
The functional elements:
The opening doors were one of the hardest parts here in this build, yet it turned out good IMO, it was tough to make the door frame open up with the door, but a little Technic work made the job ;)
As you can see; everything's open.
The original car has a simple one color interior, yet very classy and elegant.
So I decided to make it in one light color, gray leather.
Racing leather seat detail:
The car has a 60-valve, quad-turbo V12 powering all four wheels through a six-speed gearbox. The 3.5 L (3499 cc) engine has a bore of 81 mm (3.2 in) and a stroke of 56.6 mm (2.23 in) and is capable of 553 hp (412 kW; 561 PS) at 8000 rpm. Acceleration to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 3.4 seconds, and the GT has a top speed of 213 mph (343 km/h).

Hope you liked it, thanks for looking and stay tuned for a new model soon.
I'm surprised this car's not bleeding...because he got nailed! P.S.(How do you build all these cars without taking them apart to build others? You must have lots of legos! Or at least more than I do:[ )
Very Good! I didn't actually know what this car was until I saw this - after a bit of research, I compared some photos and yours - and blimey, there wasn't any difference! Nice job on such a unique car! And keep it up! <Komioh Ransack>
Firas, you are AWESOME! I love your cars, they look so real. I like the technics you use, and how smooth they all are. LEGO should give you a contract, and I'm not kidding...! You are a proffesional. Keep it up, I (and many others) love your creations! -Jan
Whatever the reason is, you don't have to leave, I heard this a lot over here, and I never understand it; may be it's just your dark ages are hitting you now, just keep on your account and try to keep in touch with the builders over MOCpages so if someday you wanted to come back (And I'm sure you will), you wouldn't find it too hard to come aboard again, I ran thru this era a while ago but I didn't delete my account or said goodbye to anyone, so if you wanted to stop building it's ok but as I told you don't delete and cut MOCp. just keep in touch ;) Good luck any way.
Here is a quick follow up to my previous comment: I showed your page to my wife who is not interested in either legos or cars. Her first response was: "I though you were showing me some legos, those are matchbox cars." Then I zoomed in on one of them. Then her jaw dropped.
Hmm... this one's so cool I'm commenting again! As I said before, I love this car, but this time I had an idea... you could try the Bugatti Veyron as a subject, in the same scale as this Bugatti EB. There aren't any good Bugatti Veyrons in large scale that I am aware of.
Hell YES! I had that same 1:18 Bburago die-cast as a kid (or teen) and i loved it...guess it still "lives" on a shelf at my parent's. Back to your MOC: How awesome is this? The turntable bases - just incredibly good ideas! And the blue... Only critics (on a VERY high level): you've forgotten the intakes just in front of the spoiler :-O Nevertheless, Supercars is your métier, no doubt about it. Now, what's next? Best wishes & peace, Jens
Fantastic. -And again a brilliant photo and text-presentation of the MOC. I especially like the; seats, spoiler and police-kit. Also I love the fact htat you did a BLUE car. Nice with less common colours!
Totally awesome! I especially like the way you made the police applyances. The EB110 is still one of my fave cars and for 1991 it has a very quiet and efficient engine, that's what I've heard from a friend of my uncle who has driven one for a year. He sold the car because he didn't want to damage the bodywork.
U want to know the first time a came to ur page and saw dat main pic i died and went to heaven and was reborn again. Luv dis car and da rest of ur cars i havent seen all of them yet but the next one on my list is your post apoc truck. im a big fan of post apoc stuff have a few post apoc stuff built but not on mocpages yet...
I'm a bit late, but here I go, making what would otherwise be a long comment a reasonable length: everything aout your car is exceptionally excellent, except for the side view and the seat, which were still fantastic. Great Job!
Very well done! In particular, the back of the car and actually the seats really stand out to me. I like that trick you used for the spoiler!
Great photos as always! Keep up the great work!
*cough Veyron *cough
Sorry for the late comment but my probs with the www. connecting will not end.When you asked on flickr "What car should i build?" one time i thought it´s impossible to create the EB 110.The front- no idea, the rear- no idea, the complete car, no chance.But...Fantastic work my friend.
I'm at a loss as to why it's taken me until now to get around to commenting on your work. I love a builder that knows his niche and sticks to his guns. Your focus seems to always yield a quality product. I also love a builder who is proud enough of his work to spend a decent amount of time on editing. Excellent job, as always.
Hey, thanks for the tips for my Enzo! Unfortunately, I had to pack up the car and I may not get the opportunity to change it for a while as I'll be at school. However, I just got the Polizia Lamborghini and the little police car with the blue fenders; After seeing this car I have the sudden urge to build in blue!
Firas you've done it again. This is amazing. The details are awesome. The colour is perfect. And the shape perfect. I love this car, because it is very rare and cool. And I see that it is from 1991 which is the year I'm born. So that is makes it even cooler.
Keep up with the great rides my friend, and I am going to post my idea of a new Bentley Brooklands in the weekend. ;)
Man, that first shot from the front is particularly sweet! Nice work with the spoiler and the police kit, too. Nothing short of your usual brilliance, Firas. Don't you ever take a break from sheer genius? Sheesh!
brilliant, your piece usage is perfect, you must have a huge database on excisting pieces in your head, it looks just perfect, like most (all) of your cars, I don't know what I can add to this, something perfect is impossible to describe without making it look less perfect, Great job
this car is once again incredible! evry car you make is awsome! this has great details and a nice colour! please work for lego, because i want a set like this! : ) plese check oout my maranello sneak peak. thanks http://www.mocpages.com/moc.php/220456
Being a bit of a Bugatti fan, I can really appreciate this one. It's funny how back in the pre-war days Bugatti taunted Bentley, their biggest rival, of "building very nice trucks" .... ha ! Who was still going after the war ? ... :)
Great work, as always - the more you build the better you get and I've probably said this ages ago but you've already perfected building cars at this scale - amazing talent !
Great work Firas! I love this car, it is really exotic and rare. The doors are great, and I especially love the rearspoiler.
I found this site were all EB110's are registered (there were only a few made)
I don't blame you for building supercars! Sure, I can only stare at it on my screen, but that's got to be about twice as much fun as it looks. As always, superb work on the shape (LOVE the back) and opening features, but my favorite details are smaller ones, like the spoiler and seats. I just don't think my mind can handle it all...
WOW! superb build! that is amazing! you are so skilled with bricks. The Buggatti veron now that is a supercar if you could capture that in bricks it would be incredible!! again, amazing creation keep it up!!!!!
I don't think a better model can be made than this one dude. Just the seats and engine are amazingly well done. The car - perfect! The cop car version, awesome. On top of everything, your presentation is faultless...10/5.
This is definitely the best MOC I've seen yet... It's absolutely flawless, and the color choice couldn't have been better. There is a small error, however, in the text: the Bugatti EB is the predecessor, not the successor, of the Bugatti Veyron. That, of course, is totally irrelevent to the spectacular quality of your work, however. 5/5, I wonder how mad Sean would be if I hacked MOC so I could give it a 6. Awesome!
Frias, this is another fantastic large scale build from you. You have captured the lines of it so well. In my research for my recent builds, pictures of the police version of this came up very frequently. I'm glad to see you modeled it with the alternate police parts. Regards, Eric.
Wow! I was wondering when you would build a Bugatti! This is absolutely excellent! This is one of my favorite cars- and you captured it very well! Okay-let's start with the body- perfect shaping all around- especially in the front. Wow, the opening features on this one are very and impressive and clean-built. I really love the detailed engine of this beast- just so unique looking. I love the SNOT work on the back- just so clean. The liftable spoiler is just an added feature to an already full of features cars! The car is just so smooth and cool! Nice use of the Lamborghini Polizia Set (8214). I own one as well- I should use it to make something cool like this! Great work! Keep building! -Anthony Dunne
