Movendi to offer three era-defining supercars at Rétromobile

Classic Driver dealer Movendi in Düsseldorf are presenting three era-defining supercars at Rétromobile – a Porsche 959, Bugatti EB110 GT, and Ferrari F50.
The Bugatti EB110 was a mid-engine sports car produced by Bugatti Automobili S.p.A. from 1991 to 1995. It featured a 60-valve, quadruple-turbocharged, 550bhp V12 coupled with a four-wheel-drive system through a six-speed gearbox.

The Porsche 959 was produced from 1986 to 1993, first as a Group B rally car and later as a legal production car designed to satisfy FIA homologation regulations. During its production run it was hailed as the most technologically advanced road-going sports car ever built. Production ended in 1988 with 292 959s from the assembly line. In total, 337 cars were made.

Ferrari’s Formula 1 challenger in 1991, the 641, was deemed worthy by the brand for its engine to serve as the basis for the new flagship F50 supercar. Succeeding the turbocharged F40, the naturally aspirated F50 was a monster. Just 349 F50s left the factory gates in Maranello, making it rarer than the Enzo, and it’s only starting to be appreciated as a highly sought after ‘halo’ Ferrari supercars.

With the 520hp, Formula 1-derived V12 bolted onto the carbon-fibre chassis, the F50 used cutting-edge motorsport technology to create the ultimate version of it's old-school recipe.
