It almost seems like the Bugatti Galibier is going to become a mythical machine, but the French supercar maker wanted to remind everyone that the sedan is coming, and that it’s continuing to work hard in perfecting the production model.

Back in August of last year, Bugatti was aiming to have production on the Galibier start sometime this year. But little news about it has come up until now. Bugatti says there is plenty of demand for the Galibier, especially from Arab customers who are eagerly awaiting the new model. The French automaker however still won’t admit a date on when we may see the production model, other than that it’ll be ready when it’s ready.

Actual production of the Galibier isn’t scheduled to begin until the final Veyron is built and sent off to its new owner. Apparently 69 of the 150 planned Grand Sport models have been sold thus far, so pardon us if we’re a little skeptical that the Galibier will make its way to production before 2013.

In other exciting news however, Bugatti did confirm that the Galibier won’t be the only model upcoming from the automaker. It has plans to create a spiritual successor for the Veyron sometime in the future.
