Bugatti’s ambitious production plans for Galibier sedan

Bugatti is one of the world’s most famous boutique carmakers but finds itself on the verge of having no models in production. With the hardcore Veyron hyper car nearing the finish of its production cycle what will this historic brand do next?

It’s all pointing towards full production for the four-door Galibier concept car which was first unveiled nearly two years back. There has been no official confirmation that the Galibier will make it into production but it is becoming nearly inevitable. According to recent reports a German car-magazine is claiming to have Bugatti top man Wolfgang Dürheimer on record confirming the Galibier’s production for sometime late next year.

The Galibier super-sedan is expected to use a version of the Veyron’s W16 engine, but it may be detuned to around 588kW for more luxury-style motoring. Power may be down but don’t expect the price to be less than the Veyron’s hefty premium, it will likely cost around the one million-euro mark. Despite the big price, Dürheimer reportedly expects to sell 1,000 to 1,500 examples of the Galibier sedan which is a large increase on the 300 Bugatti Veyrons the company sold.
