Bugatti is considering a partial redesign for their family-friendly version of the Veyron, the Bugatti Galibier. Although it is not slated to hit production lines until 2013, top Bugatti executives met with current Veyron owners and discussed the stylings of the Galibier. After much discussion a few changes are to be made.
The Galibier is considered a family-friendly sedan because it has four doors. The current concept model does not leave much leg room for a full-sized individual who is sitting in the back seat. This extended leg-room in the back seat will contribute to the overall length of the vehicle, which is to also see an increase over the concept model.
The current head of Bugatti, Wolfgang Durheimer, has agreed with the consumers and is backing up these changes.
In addition to the interior and exterior changes, modifications under the hood will decrease horsepower by as much as 100 from the Veyron. Both vehicles will get the same W16 engines but the Galibier will have only two turbos whereas the Veyron has four. Two less turbos doesn’t mean much when you consider that these engines put out approximately 1,000 horsepower.
The Bugatti Galibier was placed on the back burner when the automotive market took a nose dive a few years ago. Parent company Volkswagen has given the execs at Bugatti a green light to run the Galibier as their next production vehicle. Although this vehicle will be considered production, only a limited number will be produced and the price tag is expected to be somewhere around 1.4 million dollars.
Who say 800 horsepower is not enough. Evidently that’s what Bugatti boss Wolfgang Durheimer thinks. Bugatti announced yesterday that they are putting the Much hyped Galibier 4 door concept car on hold, wanting to see more better performance, comfort, and interior space in the production version.
“There should not even be a question about the best car in the world when you sit down to discuss it with your billionaire buddies.” Said Wolfgang
We look forward to seeing what Bugatti can come up with and if they can come up with anything close to the performance of the 1,183-horsepower 2011 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport, Billionaires around the world will be lining up to make a purchase.
Bugatti Automobiles created a new, high-end sedan; the Bugatti 16C Galibier. The interior of the Bugatti 16C Galibier promotes a luxurious lifestyle while the engine is fierce, powerful, and marveled. Bugatti 16C Galibier sedan can be considered as the world’s fastest production sedan due to the engine contained under the hood.
This Galibier is powered by an impressive W16 8.0 liter engine along with two superchargers, generating more than 800 horsepower. If the engine and speed capabilities are not enough, the style and structure will captivate all car-lovers. The overall look resembles the infamous Bugatti Veyron and has enormous led headlight. Other details of this sedan include 4 wheel drive, ceramic disk brakes, and a sleek low profile. The interior is luxurious yet simple with dual speedometers. An unordinary, yet very unique feature of this remarkable Bugatti is the analog watch on the center dashboard. The interesting idea about this watch is that it can ultimately be removed and worn by the owner of the vehicle.
