When the global economy boomed in the late 1980s, there was a supercar revolution. Every wealthy businessman, celebrity and sports star, it seemed, hankered after a 200mph machine that would deliver awesome acceleration and tenacious grip. The attempt to revive the Bugatti name, albeit in Italy rather than the marque's native France, was a brave and ultimately foolish move, for while the FBI 10 was awe-inspiring, dramatically styled and equipped with a fantastic quad-turbo VI2 engine, it was so long in gestation that the first deliveries weren't made until 1992. That was enough time for the global recession to hit hard, and the firm's once-packed order book was suddenly full of cancellations. An SS model, stripped down for racing, was also built. Only a handful of the 212mph (340km/h) machines were built before the project dried up in 1995 when Bugatti went bankrupt.
