Some things are undeniably ugly. Monkfish might taste delicious, but their redeeming qualities do not extend to their appearance. If you were asleep, and someone set a monkfish on your chest and woke you up, I guarantee you will crap yourself. They are hideous.

Likewise, the B Engineering Edonis is oppressively ugly. It is only from a sense of morbid curiosity (familiar to anyone who has squirmed through any of the 15,000 Saw movie installments) that we present you with the Edonis. Observe the horror:

The Edonis is based off of the awesome Bugatti EB110, which was both obscured in its own lifetime by the inept management of Bugatti SpA, but also by the subsequent Veyron and its headline-spawning performance. The EB110 was no slouch, using its AWD and quad-turbo V12 to claw the heavy car to 60 MPH in 3.4 seconds. The body was mostly carbon fiber, and it has aged pretty well. When the company went bust, the assets were sold off … some to Dauer, and some to former Bugatti workers who formed B Engineering. They took out the front differential, making the Edonis RWD, and crafted the body to be completely repulsive from every angle.

We think they succeeded. If nothing else, you can credit the Edonis with helping you remember how awesome its donor EB110 was. And, by the way, the Dauer version kicked serious ass, weighing five hundred pounds less than the original and pumping out 650 HP to hit 60 in 3.3 seconds, with a top speed of 230 MPH. Especially impressive that Dauer was able to do that without the millions of dollars a large corporation like VW had to play with in developing the Veyron.

But yeah, that Edonis … yeesh!

    :P Always, Alex. Always. Don’t take it personally, being sacked and all. Got to give the people what they want: Bread and Violence. Fortunately, it was only violence to your spelling.

    God bless you, Word Processor!

    Haha … ah yes, I forget sometimes that my computer has “Gumpert” in the spell check dictionary.

    “Bread and Violence” – that sounds like an HBO series about the 1848 Revolutions in Europe.
