Coveted as a collector’s item and savvy investments, Bugatti has brought all three of its modern supercars from the last three decades to produce one of the rarest and most “powerful” desktop wallpapers.

The “Holy Trinity” as Bugatti calls it, is made up of the Bugatti EB110, Veyron and Chiron, each an icon of its own right from the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s.

The Bugatti EB110 Super Sport was the first series production car to be made of carbon fibre. EB are the initials of Ettore Bugatti, founder of the company and 110 represents his 110th birthday was presented in Paris in 1991 on Ettore’s 110th birthday. Everything about its construction was cutting edge – even the bolts for the wheels are made of titanium.

0 to 100 km/h is done in just 3.6 seconds with top speed of 351 km/h, making it the fastest series production car of its time. Bugatti set four world records with the EB110, among other things for the fastest acceleration, fastest series production sports car and fastest series production car on ice.

Like the EB110, all-wheel drive, four turbocharges and a carbon monocoque was the recipe of choice again for the Bugatti Veyron 16.4. The hypercar made 1,000 hp, 1,500 Nm of torque and was capable of top speeds of 407 km/h. Bugatti subsequently topped that feat with the introduction of the Super Sport with extra 200 hp and a top speed of 415 km/h. The Super Sport subsequently went on to clock 431 km/h, making it the fastest series production super sports car in the world.

All hell broke loose when the Chiron showed up. It had 1,500 hp and 1,600 Nm – allowing it get to 100 km/h from standstill in 2.4 seconds, to 200 km/h in just 6.1 seconds – the same time a Golf GTI takes to get from 0 to 100 km/h – and 300 km/h in just 13.1 seconds. Last year, Bugatti became the first car manufacturer to exceed 300 mph (483 km/h) with the Chiron – setting a new speed record of 490 km/h.

That’s until Koenigsegg came into the picture of course.

Regularly spend countless hours online looking at cars and parts I can't afford to buy. How a car makes you feel behind the wheel should be more important than the brand it represents - unless resale value is your thing.
