Bugatti Galibier 16C revealed in new pics


Bugatti has released new pictures of its Galibier 16C, a high-performance luxury concept rumoured to go on sale in 2013

The Galibier concept was originally designed to gauge customer reaction to a four-door, four-seat Bugatti, but insiders are reportedly keen to have it go into production when the Veyron ends in 2012.

"This is what the Bugatti team wants to do now we have to convince customers and the [VW] group to make it," company boss Franz-Josef Paefgen told Autocar at the car's launch last year.

Technical boss Wolfgang Schreiber says he wants the production Galibier to be "the world’s fastest, highest accelerating and powerful four-door" and hinted that maximum power would end up at around 800bhp.

The Galibier is four-wheel-drive with the same W16 engine as the Veyron, however it has twin mechanical superchargers, rather than the four turbochargers.
