If you’ve been saving your nickels and dimes in hopes of snapping up a Bugatti Galibier once the high-dollar four-door became available we have some bad news. It sounds like the car has been canceled.
Wolfgang Schreiber, third CEO of the ultra-luxury brand in as many years said there isn’t enough room in the company’s rarified lineup for both a super car (the Veyron) and a super sedan. Talk about closed-mined thinking!
We would argue that whether there’s an economic recession, depression or outright extinction-inducing meteor impact Bugatti’s wealthy clientele always have cash and are willing to spend, provided there’s something that catches their eye. And the Galibier was an exceedingly compelling package.
Think about it, an ultra-luxury four-door with more muscle than a nuclear-powered aircraft carrier, well, maybe not that much. But still, it was supposed to have more than 1,000 horsepower courtesy of a twin supercharged version of the Veyron’s 8.0-liter W16 engine. And it needed that much giddy-up because the car’s maximum speed was supposed to top 235 miles an hour.
The concept car’s design was also extremely eye-catching, with distinctive shiny metal intermingled with dark blue carbon fiber. If the Galibier ever gets produced it won’t look like any other car out there.
