Blue is the traditional Bugatti color, so it’s nice that Autoart offers some other variations. The dark-red review car is sharp, and the paint job is flawless. Autoart says there are 116 freehand sprays to achieve this deep, smooth finish.
As with other Autoart cars of this scale, everything is functional: the hood, hatch, and scissor doors open. There’s also a wide, thin spoiler or wing that can be raised slightly at the car’s rear.
Detail is fine, and the car feels robust. Of the impressive 346 parts, 111 are metal; most of the plastic parts are used in the interior and in the fine engine detail. As with most supercars, you can see the magnificent V-12 engine through the rear window, and the headers include the Bugatti name. I like the blue trim on the silver engine and blue hose fittings, along with the metal foil-look wrap that has become more common among high-performance engine bays.
The tan-and-cream interior looks upscale and sporty, and the shading difference between the two colors is subtle. The dash, though, is black, as is the steering wheel. Stickers detail the dash gauges and mimic the wood-look dash facing. A big console with stubby gearshift knob runs between the two seats.
Exterior detail includes beautifully crafted headlights and taillights; a Bugatti badge on the nose; a large, black plastic windshield wiper and arm; large side mirrors with reflective faces; tiny side light bubbles over the front wheel wells; nicely detailed wheels, and dual chrome exhausts. Photoetched grilles grace all air inlets and outlets, and the cool scissor doors feature metal hinges. I wish the tires were branded, but that’s a minor point, and no doubt would push the model’s price up to pay for the licensing.
Overall, it’s an exotic-looking early supercar. The Bugatti looks great in profile, and creates a stunning display model with the doors swung up and the engine bay exposed. If you’re a supercar fan, the EG110 GT is deserving of a spot in your collection.
