Edonis, after 17 years, the “sister” supercar of the Bugatti EB110 is reborn

Posted on

Edonis is a name that can initially leave the most indifferent. In fact, it is necessary to go back 17 years, to 2000 and to the times of bankruptcy Bugatti . Edonis was a supercar based on Bugatti EB110 a project designed by some engineers who had come out of the Modenese house that had closed its doors.

Technicians acquired 17 parts in carbon fiber that they would have been assembled in the production of EB110. This team wanted to build a supercar called Edonis. The car, to be produced in 21 specimens would have had an engine 3.8-liter V12 and 680 horsepower . But the project never saw the light.

But now the rebirth would be assured by Casil Motors a car manufacturer in Las Vegas. Casil bought the rights to this project last year and now wants to give it life. The car will have an aluminum body made by hand on a slightly modified frame but always inspired by that of the EB110.

The 3.8-liter 12-cylinder will produce in this case 720 horses . It will be paired with a six-speed manual transmission that transmits power to the rear wheels. Data released by Casil speak of an acceleration of 0-60 mph (96 km / h) in 3.4 seconds and a top speed of 354 km / h . [19659002]

The car would be in the last phase of development and soon ready for production. It will be assembled 15 copies at the cost of 690 thousand euros . Ebonis SP-110 Fenice is the name chosen by Casil.
