Chris Harris drives a very yellow Bugatti EB110 SS

Another cracking video from Mr Harris, this time behind the wheel of one of our all time favourite supercars: the Bugatti EB110 SuperSport.

The Bugatti EB110 was one of the three great supercars of the 1990s. Romano Artioli’s dream took four years to create, but the result was a compact, all-wheel drive machine with huge performance. But six months later Bugatti announced a faster ‘110, the SuperSport…

A very very special car. One of the only 30 or so SuperSports from the already tiny total EB110 factory run of around about 130 cars.

As you’ll gather from the video, this particular example is being auctioned by RM Sotherby’s at their upcoming 7 September event in London.

Bidding range estimate £600,000- £770,000.

UPDATE: Sold for £560,000 (source)


Chris Harris Does the Aston Martin Vantage GT12

11 minutes of road and (wet) track impressions of AM’s latest iteration of their V12 Vantage, this one a stripped out wide-bodied and bewinged 600 hp race car for the road.

I think Chris Harris likes it:

Normally aspirated V12. I don’t care what you do with turbochargers. You can make them very very impressive, you can make them very very fast, but the raw simplicity and—for want of a better word—emotion of this engine… And this is such a powerhouse this thing, that it will marmalise even 325-section rears. That has to be a good thing.


Chris Harris Does the Ferrari 488 GTB

Spend 18 minutes with Chris Harris as he wrings the neck of Ferrari’s new twin-turbo 670 hp 488 GTB on track at Fiorano and then on the road up in the hills around Modena.


Chris Harris vs. Porsche 991 GT3 RS

4 litres, 500hp, and a lot of wing.

Yes, that rear wing. Have your seen the rear wing? Have your seen the rear wing on this car?!?!?

Chris Harris gets behind the wheel of the much anticipated next iteration of the venerable Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

I think he likes it.


Chris Harris drives the new McLaren 675LT

An all too brief jaunt around Silverstone behind the wheel of the new McLaren 675LT, LT for ‘Longtail’.

Think of it as McLaren’s 458 Speciale to the 458 version of their 650S; only 500 made, all sold; more aero; wider track, lower suspension; upwards of 100kg weight savings (down to a dry-weight of just 1,230kg) thanks to plastic rear window, titanium exhaust, lightweight suspension components and more; faster steering ratio; trick Pirelli P Zero Trofeo tyres; plus that extra 25bhp from an engine that shares only 50% of the components from its 650S brethren.

What does he think?

Dare I say it, it just feels like a slightly baby P1.

The McLaren P1 Test. On Road and Track

Yes it’s another Chris Harris video. Yes, we’ve been posting lots of these. How could we possibly go past one of the first drives of the much anticipated McLaren P1 (XP7 in this case), especially with Harris behind the wheel, let loose on the roads of Abu Dhabi, and off the leash around the Yas Marina GP circuit.

Includes some fantastic insight into the development and capabilities of this new breed of supercar from McLaren Chief Test Driver, Chris Goodwin.

A whole new thing.

Chris Harris scoops an early drive of the Porsche 991 GT3

Chris Harris:

“It’s incredible the calibration work they’ve done, the chassis is a massive step on. We’ve got a wider front track… The car just turns so much better than the 997 version.”

1,400kg, electric power steering and PDK only, more than made whole by that 9,000rpm redline, recalibrated steering software and bespoke front-axle tweaks.


Formula Ford EcoBoost. Street Legal Racer on Road and Nürburgring

Chris Harris:

“This car is completely road legal. It has indicators, fog lights, even an electric handbrake. And it also has a laminated letter from the Ford Motor Company explaining as much, wedged down inside the chassis - just in case you get stopped by the Polizei.”

That laminated letter sure must come in handy.
