Video: Bugatti previews the 16C Galibier

Article by Christian Andrei, on May 1, 2012

Parent company Volkswagen has given its approval for the Bugatti 16C Galibier to enter production. This ultra-luxury sedan was unveiled in 2009 at the Los Angeles auto show. It was powered by the 16-cylinder engine that’s also used on the Veyron. They have the same output of about 1000hp or higher. Nothing much was reported about the model until last April when it was reported that VW has given the green signal for it to be built.

Ever since its introduction at the Los Angeles show, Bugatti and Bentley chief Wolfgang Durheimer had been asking for this car to be produced. After a long lull of no updates about the vehicle, a nearly five-minute video was uploaded on YouTube to demonstrate the features of this model.

The video didn’t show clear images of the Galibier but it did have a lot of symbolism and metaphors. Of course, just the fact that it’s a car with an output of more than 1,000hp would turn heads anywhere.
