RHD eb110 ss

I found this photo on the net, it seems to show a RHD Bugatti (Dauer) EB110 SS.

I'm 100% sure the photo isn't reversed, the pedals are in the right positions, and the "EB" badge is the right way on the steering wheel, the speed gauge goes round the right way and you can just see the last couple of letters of "Supersport" on the side of it. there is also a blue 110 in the background

All the information I've read said that they only made them in LHD, so was this just a one off made by Dauer?

Re: Rhd Eb110 Ss

The RHD SuperSport, which is in reality a GT converted to SS, has been made by Lotus Engineering. At that time, Bugatti was owning Lotus. It was an exercise for understanding how difficult it was to have the RHD for the UK, Japan, Singapore markets.
Dauer never made any RHD. He repaired it after B.Engineering sold it to UK, but the car was not running well. The owner sent it then to Nurnberg to find out which kind of flop he bought.
For your knowledge.....the real...true SS have the upper part of the side windows in LEXAN. The glass one are all GT. The turbos shall be ball bearing with air restrictors. Other wise they are GT. The chassis N of a SS is ZA9CBB.........a GT is ZA9CAB......... and the right place to check it is under the passenger seat.
I have been working in Campogalliano from the second day to the last.
Ciao

I do not think so. He got his 4 cars as he wished to have.
The chassis has been designed as a LHD. It was just a try to see the impacts in terms of money to build the RHD.
After that the EB112 and the Eb114 has been designed in order to change only marginal parts. Joffrey got the cars and he never used them. After a while he was already in troubles. He got 7 Dauer 962 and he paid only 4. This was the start of Dauer's decline.
