“The photos, as much as the text, carry the reader through the incredible tale of the EB110—its origin, growth, and tragic end—and the revolutionary factory behind it,” stated the book's editor, Julius Kruta. "Romano Artioli's goal to develop a world-beating car in a future factory, and its terrible end, reads like a Hollywood film script."

Johann Petit, Pascal van Mele, and Bugatti's previous head of tradition, Kruta, wrote and edited the book. After the success of 2020, they decided to write about the EB110.

“When our earlier book on the last Bugatti racing vehicles produced a tsunami of demand, we understood there was a pent-up need for a full Bugatti EB110 story,” said Kruta.

The team behind The EB110 & The Last Bugatti Racing Cars collected never-before-seen images of Artioli and other key people to tell the "shocking" story behind the renowned supercar.

The 330-copy book is as rare as its subject. First-copy sales will benefit Pebble Beach's charity. The Pearl Collection's curator bought the book.
