Bugatti 16C Galibier back on the table?

Article by Christian A., on September 1, 2014

Bugatti unveiled the 16C Galibier back in 2009 and since then the vehicle was killed several times. Now, Bugatti has a new CEO, Wolfgang Duerheimer who replaced Wolfgang Schreiber, and it appears that the four-door supercar is back on track. If Schreiber clearly said that there will be no four-door Bugatti, Duerheimer says that the project is on ice.

What’s more interesting is that he revisits the Galibier periodically, which means that he loves the project and there are still chances to see a production version of the concept car. Next year, Bugatti will show the official successor of the Veyron 16.4 hypercar, a vehicle that promises to surprise us all.

When unveiled, the Bugatti 16C Galibier Concept was powered by the same 8.0-liter W16 engine with two-stage supercharging that produced over 1,000 hp and was capable to offer a top speed of 350 km/h or 217 mph.

Power was delivered via permanent all-wheel drive and the Galibier was one of the fastest four-door supercars in the world. Regarding the design, the 16C Galibier Concept followed the same design line as the Veyron and featured a body built using carbon fiber.

The vehicle had a total length of 5.3 meters and a weight of 1,900 kg. The interior was a masterpiece and featured a Parmigiani removable tourbillon clock, which could be worn on the wrist due to its cleverly designed leather strap.

So, with the Bentley Mulsanne Convertible back on the table, there are still chances to see the 16C Galibier. Stay tuned!
