Bugatti has built the fastest production cars in the world, but their next project will be a little different. Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer confirmed that the new 16 C Galibier concept, which gives an indication as to their next production car, will have four seats and have a generous trunk for luggage.
The sedan will likely be powered by a 16-cylinder engine, producing somewhere around 800-hp. The Galibier concept will be much larger than the Veyron and have less power, so 0-60 sprints in under three seconds are highly unlikely. A plug-in hybrid is also in the cards, with an electric-only driving range of around 25 miles, according to Durheimer. Bugatti plans to sell between 1000-15000 of the Galibier models. This is around three times as many sales compared to the Veyron and Grand Sport vehicles sold since 2004. Bugatti will likely begin selling the luxury vehicle during the fall of 2012. Durheimer says the four-seater will cost at least €1M, equivalent to around $1.42 million.
