Bugatti Galibier Concept Car 2014
In 2009 Bugatti presented Bugatti 16C Galibier – the world’s most exclusive, elegant and powerful four door car. A wonderful combination of art, form and technique.
The Galibier shares with the Veyron its engine, an exercise in extreme motorworks: an 8.0-liter quad-turbocharged W16 producing 1001 horsepower (in the Veyron). That’s enough to get the two-door Veyron to 253 miles per hour, though reports indicate the Galibier will only top out at a mere 217. Unlike the Veyron, the Galibier’s engine is front-mounted and Bugatti says it can run on ethanol, though how many Iowa cornfields can be dispatched with every quarter-mile run has yet to be determined.
Outside, the Galibier’s two-tone color scheme comprises polished aluminum and a dark blue carbon fiber weave that turns slightly translucent when illuminated. Just the thing for making a first impression whilst pulling into the Kleig-lit driveway of the local viscount’s estate. No word yet on price, but consider a million bucks a probable starting point.
