Even though Bugatti still refuses to admit it, the Bugatti Galibier looks poised to be put into production. These photos were snapped out in Molsheim, France and it looks nearly identical to the concept that debuted just head of this year’s Geneva Auto Show. Rumors are that Bugatti will be launching the Galibier in 2013 with a $1.3 million price tag.
With how successful luxury sedans are becoming with Porsche’s Panamera, Aston Martin’s Rapide and even Rolls-Royce’s new Ghost, it would make sense for Bugatti to transition from their Veyron supercar to the Galibier. It’ll feature an 8.0L 16-cylinder twin-supercharged powerplant dropping anywhere from 800- to 1000-hp. Their vision is to have the most exclusive, elegant, and powerful four-door automobile in the world.
Here’s to hoping Conan O’Brien will get his hands on it in 2013 when his contract with TBS is over, one-upping his Bugatti Veyron Mouse.
