Edonis SupercarThe Edonis is a vehicle that was created by Italian automobile manufacturer B Engineering, a small-volume automobile manufacturer that is located in Italy. It is made up of several former employees of the Bugatti firm when it was under the leadership of Romano Artioli.

The car was unvieled on January 1, 2001 and is based on the Bugatti EB110 Super Sport but has been extensively re-engineered, the only thing retained from the original Bugatti is the carbon-fiber chassis. The Edonis uses the same V12 engine as found in the Bugatti EB110 but has had its displacement increased from 3500 cc to 3760 cc.

The original four small IHI turbochargers have been replaced by two larger units from the same manufacturer. Engine power has been boosted from 610 hp DIN (448 kW) and 650 Nm (479 ft·lbf) of torque to 680 hp DIN (500 kW) at 8000 rpm and 735 Nm (539 ft·lbf).The engine’s specific power output is an unprecedented 181 bhp/liter. Both the exterior and interior of the car have been completely redesigned.The tires of the Edonis are specifically designed by Michelin. The tires use a system invented by Michelin, the called PAX System.

The 4WD triple-differential drivetrain from the original Bugatti has been replaced with a much simpler and lighter RWD transaxle, thus saving approximately 70kg from total weight. These power figures give the 1500kg Edonis a power-to-weight ratio of 480 bhp/ton. Claimed performance figures are a top speed of 227 mph(365 km/h) and acceleration to 62 mph (100km/h) in 3.9 seconds.
