The Bugatti EB 218 concept was one of the stars of the
1999 Geneva Motor Show. The concept was a creation of
Giorgetto Giugiaro and ItalDesign, who developed the EB
218 sedan concept from their Bugatti EB 118 coupe concept
displayed the previous year.
The Bugatti EB 218 concept was a luxury four-door sedan
with subtle, yet opulent styling and a innovative powerplant.
A lightweight aluminium space-frame was used for the chassis
and body. The exterior was finished in a pearlescent paint
called "Blu Notte Perlato".
The 6.3 litre W18 engine of the EB 218
developed 555 horsepower.
The interior of the Bugatti EB 218 concept was, as expected,
a nice place to find yourself. It was trimmed in the finest
silk-finish leather and light walnut wood. The combination
of neutral colors and exquisite materials oozed a sense
of lavish indulgence.
Under the bodywork of the Bugatti EB 218 was a highly
advanced drivetrain which included a permanent four-wheel-drive
system, and a 6.3 litre W18 engine formed from three V6
engines mounted side-by-side in parallel. This unit produced
555 horsepower and 650 Nm of torque.
