The Bugatti 16C Galibier concept was first revealed in late 2009 as a proposal for a second model (after the Veyron of course) in the Bugatti lineup. This four door, four seat super saloon car was boasted to be equally as impressive in terms of performance as its Veyron sibling.
As Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer sat down with Car&Driver, more details emerged on the upcoming model.
On tap, Durheimer says the all new Galibier will come with “over 1,000bhp” and exceed top speeds of 235 mph (378 km/h) thanks to a twin-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 flex-fuel engine. All these exhaust fumes will be sent to the rear of the car via eight (yes, eight) titanium exhaust tips.
Durheimer also states that the Galibier will be “faster than anything on the market.”
Although no word has been set on a production date, the saloon is expected to hit the market near the 2015 model year.
