Bugatti is known to make the world’s fastest super sports luxury cars, and it is no other than the Bugatti Veyron. But that is about to change, Bugatti has given the “green light” to produce a four-door super sports luxury sedan. The new luxury sedan is called the 16C Galibier, which was introduced at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show.
The Bugatti 16C Galibier concept at the 2010 show was powered by a 1,000-horsepower engine and has an estimated cost of 1 million euros ($1.4 million).
“Four-door vehicles open up a whole new market for exotic- car makers,” said Kevin Tynan, an automotive analyst for Bloomberg Industries. “It makes good sense for Bugatti to get in there. Those cars are loyal to design language and brand heritage.”
Bugatti is now owned byVolkswagen, and it has approved to build the Bugatti 16C Galibier, which will use the 16-cylinder engine that can run on both gasoline and biofuel. However, other reports speculate that Bugatti will reduce number of the turbochargers from four to two instead, which will dip horsepower to around 800 hp.
Bugatti plans to deliver the 16C Galibier in 2014 if things go well at the plant in Molsheim, France.
