Bugatti 16C Galibier to cost $1.5 million, appears in 2013


Bugatti certainly shocked the automotive world a few weeks ago when it revealed the new Galibier supersedan model, which is set to be powered by the same, albeit more tamed, version of the Veyron’s W16 quad-turbo engine.

Now, after letting hype and speculation build up, the company revealed that the future model, which is set to appear in 2013 when the Veyron will be finally taken off the assembly line at the Molsheim factory, will cost around $1.5 million dollars, a hundred grand more than the Veyron.

For that amount of money you will be getting the massive W16 engine (hence the 16C moniker) which may or may not be coupled with a dual-clutch gearbox from VW, as rumors indicate the Germans at ZF who developed a new eight-speed one. This will give the Galibier “only” 800 HP, but will be able to reach a speed of 350 km/h (217 mph). It is estimated that about 300 models will be produced each year, so those with plenty of money should reserve one as soon as possible.

For those of us which don’t have an extra $1.5 mil laying around, we can only look at the pictures of the supersedan from Bugatti.

    The roof line still looks too much like a Volkswagen Passat, and the back too much like the incredibly ugly Porsche Panamera. Bugatti should rather have a look at Fisker Karma’s matchless design.

    I think Bugatti’s appeal to very wealthy people who aren’t very interested in cars!
