Given the superlative nature and awesome speed of Bugatti’s already
legendary, 250-plus mph Veyron supercar, interest in the manufacturer’s
follow-up is intense. The company had previously gone on record as
saying that its next model wouldn’t be a supercar, but details were
scant — until now. In a recent article from the German magazine Auto Motor und Sport, Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Dürheimer confirms that the new car will be in the vein of the controversial [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.],
which debuted in 2009. It will seat four and have a generous trunk,
Dürheimer says; you can bet that a set of fitted luggage will be one of
the pricey options.

important is what’s fitted up front, of course, which the article
claims will be a 16-cylinder engine, although power output wasn’t
mentioned. (The W-16 under the Galibier’s butterfly bonnet delivers a
mere 800 hp, somewhat less than the 1,001 churned up by the 8-liter W-16
in the mid-engine Veyron.) The Galibier concept is big, though, so
don’t expect Veyron-esque, sub-three-second zero-to-60-mph sprints no

Bugatti
hopes to sell between 1,000 and 1,500 units of the super-luxe sedan
over the course of its lifetime, roughly triple the number of Veyron
coupes and Grand Sport convertibles Bugatti built since 2004. The story
also says that the Galibier will go on sale in the fall of 2012, about a
year earlier than most earlier projections. How much will it cost?
Dürheimer says it will command at least €1M, which amounts to about
$1.42 million at today’s exchange rates.

800HP is still pretty good. I guess for what your spending you might expect a little more power! But if someone wanted to give me one.....I would take it!

How much HP does the Veyron have? Its over 1000 I think?



Not many kids get picked up from school in a 800hp sedan.
