Bugatti Galibier delayed once again

Article by Christian A., on October 17, 2012

As Bugatti attempts to find out what the markets want from a sedan, it delayed the development of the Bugatti Galibier once again, according to Autocar. The super sedan was first seen as a concept in 2009. It features all-wheel drive and is equipped with a twin-supercharged version of the Veyron’s 8.0-liter W-16 that can deliver “800-900-hp” – a figure that has increased to four digits since then.

Bugatti delayed the release of the four-door super sedan to give the vehicle more power and space as well as to improve its appearance and make it more luxurious. Wolfgang Schreiber, the chief of Bentley and Bugatti, said that the sedan isn’t like to arrive in the market until 2015 or 2016.

Schreiber told Autocar that it’s harder to meet all of the requirements for Bugatti customers than Bentley. Even with the delay, Schreiber still believes that Bugatti needs the Galibier in its lineup, explaining that customers would be excited about a second car.
