Bugatti’s new model has more luxury, less power

Article by Christian A., on September 23, 2010

If you though that Bugatti will not bring anything new to its lineup, think again as the manufacturer is planning to launch a four-seat sedan dubbed Galibier 16C in 2013.

The new car will carry a price tag of $1.5 million and its production will be limited to 300 units, just like the Veyron supercar (also, we do expect some special edition of the sedan).

The new Galibier will be manufactured using carbon fiber and aluminum, in order to reduce weight, and will be powered by the same 8.0-liter W16 engine but detuned from 1000 hp to 800 hp.

Apparently, the engine will develop ‘just’ 800 hp, because the Bugatti engineers will use superchargers rather than turbochargers.

Regarding the Bugatti Veyron, the car was an immense success for the manufacturer. Introduced back in 2005, the Veyron is near the end of its 300-unit production run. The Veyron is powered by the 8.0-liter W16 engine capable to deliver 1001 hp, and has a top speed of over 400 km/h.

Bugatti also revealed the Veyron Super Sport, a more powerful version of the supercar, capable to deliver 1200 hp (882 kW) and a maximum torque of 1,500 Nm of torque.

The car achieved a new landspeed world record for production cars with an average speed of 431 km/h (268 mph). Still, the production version of the Super Sport has an electronically limited speed of 415 km, in order to protect the tires. [via AutoWeek]
