Bugatti release new Galibier 16C concept promotional video

Will the bigwigs in the Bugatti hierarchy decide to build a production version of the Galibier 16C concept that was first shown back in 2009? It is too difficult to say. But the company continue to publicise the model with a new promotional video that has been released through their official youtube channel.

It attempts to highlight what they describe as a wonderful combination of art, form and technique. However, it also stokes the fire for the debate that the model may finally hit production.

Very little has been heard on the model for the past six months but if it gets the green light for production, it will also feature an updated design. Access to the rear will be made easier and it will also have a little extra leg room by extending the overall length of the model.

Power will be generated from a unspecified unit that will produce at least 1000PS (735kW/986hp). We can only presume it will be the latest incarnation of the Veyron's quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter engine.

The production Bugatti sedan would have a price tag that exceeds £1.5 million (€1.83 million) if the model gets the go ahead from the powers above.

Just a thought - but perhaps they bring it on again because of the Maybach market, think Maybach production will stop in the near future. I would guess it´s about the same target group.

`In fact this car wouldn't have any selling power. It's a fad.

So many times this images come along, that I really don't care if the car will be produced or not.

It may be a very good car. But the design is so vulgar, I really hate the Bugatti's they look awful, and the same for their interior, I find it ugly too.

I agree...I never really liked their design language...and whats with the addiction with the Hatchback/ Estate/ Shooting Brake look...it makes it even more uglier.

This version look pretty much the same when they took the covers off at Frankfuirt a few years back. I dont seem anything diffrent. Two thing I do not like then and now the head and taillights look horrible. And as much as I think how awesome the hood opens up, make me think that it's going to be near immpossibel to do any work on the engine with should tiny opening. Bugatti should stick to excusivity of their supercars and forget about bringing a 4 door sedan.

Well, it is the same car, because this video is 3 years old. :))
