Bugatti EB110 SS
The Bugatti EB110 just might be the peak of the 1990s supercars. It is so important as a significant piece of history with tech that could never be duplicated. The Bugatti EB110 is one of the most underrated, but one of the most revolutionary cars in the world! In every sense, this was a hypercar from the early ’90s, only the word “hypercar” hadn’t been invented yet. One of the most reliable engines, they did it way before anyone else even thought of doing this with cars. “When we decided to start the Bugatti rebirth, we posed a problem: we had to imagine how a Bugatti car could have been if its evolution continued. In fact, Bugatti's have always been innovative in its field, so we too tried to make this car more advanced than the others, and we totally did,” Romano Artioli said, with not an ounce of doubt. They built almost everything from scratch, they didn't use any other manufactures products. This is what makes this car so special, yes it takes time for the FOUR turbos to cook up, but when they are done cooking up... it is one hell of a beast, and it sounds absolute brutal and amazing too. Bankruptcy is what caused an end to this beautiful era. We will always remember this super car legend.

This car needs no introduction. The beautiful XJ220 was also a huge game changer in the 90s, one the most beautiful cars in the world. Not only eye candy, it was one of the fastest cars in the world, with a top speed of 217 mph. This car preformed like no other. The car designed by Richard Owen was a nod to the gorgeous XK120 of the late ’40s, which also topped out at 120 mph (amazing for its time), Jaguar set out to make its ’90s supercar capable of a 220 mph top speed. Which it did not. It was originally meant to be powered by a V12, but it only had a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. A disappointing result, but its still an amazing car, and it's brutal sound can not be taken away! This car is a legend, it will never be forgotten, what an extraordinary car!
