Bugatti’s unholy trinity: Chiron vs Veyron vs EB110

Classic & Sports Car Logo By Classic and Sports Car editorial team of Classic & Sports Car | Slide 1 of 20: Bugatti’s been around for 110 years, but the three most recent machines to wear that badge feel so utterly modern that you’d never guess.

The Bugatti Chiron, Veyron and EB110 are exceptions even among hypercars: super-exclusive exotics that are both masterpieces of engineering and also profoundly pointless.

Strangely, though, that’s not what bothers you when you’re at the helm of a blue streak catapulting towards a restricted top speed of 261mph. No, your main concern at that moment is how exactly you’ll slow down on a runway that’s rapidly running out. And slick with rain.

That’s also the moment you realise it’s never been about the real world. It’s been about bragging rights. And Bugatti’s won those in spades. But which is best?
