Busted: The Next Generation Bugatti Veyron Exclusive That Never Was…


Read more

We hate to be the bearers of bad news for some, but if you happened to see these "exclusive" pictures of the "next generation Bugatti Veyron" over at Carbuzz, as Carscoops reader Kostik M. did and told us about it in an email, we feel the need to inform you that they're not real.

The blog noted in its piece that, "these exclusive images sent to us by a source close to the French carmaker gives us a first look at what Bugatti has in store for the next-generation Veyron. Whether these come direct from Bugatti’s drawing table or are an interpretation based on information the tipster has gleaned is unclear."

A Design Concept for a Baby Bugatti Veyron Supercar

Unless there's something else cooking in the VW Group's kitchen, the next car to wear the "EB" (the initials of the brand's founder, Ettore Bugatti) logo will be the production version of the 2009 Galibier super-saloon with over 1,000 horses and an expected date of arrival after 2015, following a recent push back of the project.

So, what if Bugatti wanted to enhance its range with a different (see smaller and more affordable) supercar than the famed Veyron, what would that model be and look like?

Bugatti Teaser of "Latest Example of Exceptional Performance" Shows Absolutely Nothing


Read more

Bugatti has just released a "teaser" for an upcoming model, but we have absolutely no clue as to what it will be. That is down, in part, to them deliberately being ambiguous with the information they share, and in part to the fact that, the teaser they showed features a set of blue hangar doors, with light protruding through the gap – that's all. So, what is it?

The rumored replacement for the ageing Veyron, or another variant of the current car, but with more power, designed to take back the crown as world's fastest car?

The Bugatti Veyron…Beetle Edition

If you had any doubts that Bugatti belongs to the same group as the makers of the legendary Beetle, just take a look at this, admittedly humorous, but at the same time, high-quality digital rendering, from the creative minds at RC82 Workchop.

The Polish artist(s) incorporated all the design cues of the original (or classic) Volkswagen Beetle, from the deep-dish steel wheels and bug eyes, to the window frames and exterior door hinges, on the shape of the Bugatti Veyron hypercar.

Designer Dreams Up Single-Seater Bugatti TypeZero Concept


Read more

It's never a bad idea to look to the past for inspiration, just as long as you don't forget the needs and wants of the future when doing so.

French designer Marc Devauze looked at Bugatti's glorious past and chose the brand's most successful racecar ever, the 1920's Type 35 that won over 1,000 races including the Grand Prix World Championship as well as the famed Targa Florio, for inspiration in creating his award winning TypeZero Concept.

Upcoming Bugatti 16C Galibier Saloon will get “Over 1,000bhp”


Read more

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.

Is that a New Bugatti Sedan Hiding Under the Covers or an Audi A8?


Read more

The sly crew over at Autogespot nabbed this picture of a sedan model covered under a black sheet at Bugatti's Geneva Motor Show stand, which they claim might be the new Galibier concept.

However, while it is true that the new boss of Bugatti Automobiles, Wolfgang Duerheimer, has confirmed in a recent interview that the company will present a heavily reworked version of the Galibier sedan concept in the near future, we're not entirely convinced that this is the car he was talking about.

An Alternative Concept for a Bugatti Super Sedan by Dejan Hristov


Read more

We'll probably have to wait for a major international motor show to see what kind of "significant" design changes Bugatti has made to its original Galibier concept, as confirmed earlier this year by the brand's new CEO, Wolfgang Duerheimer, but in the meantime, here's a new design study for a Bugatti saloon that was sent to us by Dejan Hristov.

While a little rough on the edges, Hristov's Bugatti Super Sedan design concept proposes a different look that draws closer to the firm's Veyron 16.4 coupe than the Galibier showcar.

Two for the Price of One: Amadou Ndiaye’s Bugatti Atless Concept


Read more

Two cars that helped establish Bugatti’s reputation as a world-class automaker during the difficult interwar period were the Type 35 and Type 57 Atlantic. Stunningly beautiful, intricately built and incredibly powerful, these two cars summed up all that Bugatti was and wanted to be.

Now, Canadian industrial designer Amadou Ndiaye has taken these two classic automobiles and melded them into one with his Bugatti Atless design study.

Fantasia: Bugatti EB1.2 TSI and Bentley Continental Super Mini

While we sincerely hope that no other supercar maker will ever follow in the degrading footsteps of Aston Martin and it's luxed-up Toyota iQ, the Cygnet, we have no problem whatsoever with photoshop artists attempting to imagine the impossible.

In this case a pair of Bugatti and Bentley superminis, both of which would, in theory, be based on the VW Group's Polo, Ibiza or Fabia hatchbacks. The two designs were created by Autoblog.nl reader Jasper van der Heiden. Check them out after the jump.

More is Better: Bugatti Releases New Photos of 16C Galibier Saloon


Read more

The more we see of the Bugatti 16C Galibier, the higher the chances that the VW Group will green light the super saloon for production - that is, if the Germans haven't signed it off already.

In this new batch of photos that were released after a special media presentation at the Volkswagen Group Evening on the eve of the Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti included pictures of the 16C Galibier in a black-only finish.

Bugatti Renaissance Design Concept: Veyron Supercar Reinterpreted


Read more

We're not sure when or if Bugatti will present a direct successor to the 1,001-horsepower Veyron, but if the VW Group-owned company does, John Mark Vicente, a Canadian graduate of the Communication Design program at the Emily Carr University, would like to believe that it may look something like this. Named the Bugatti Renaissance, the conceptual proposal builds on the qualities of the 16-cylinder supercar. Hit the jump to check out the rest of the photos.

Bugatti Files Trademarks for 16C Galibier Sport Sedan


Read more
The bean counters over at the Volkswagen Group are still gauging customer reactions to the Bugatti 16C Galibier concept to see if there's enough interest to build a production version, but just to be on the safe side - we all remember the Chinese Rolls Royce Phantom clone - they decided to trademark the design of the sports saloon at the World Intellectual Property Organization.

The trademark was applied for the concept model, so there's new to be seen in the design sketches.

If the 16C Galibier receives the 'green light', it will most likely go on sale after Bugatti ends production of the Veyron production in 2012.

The almost production-ready concept model features a 16-cylinder, 8.0-litre flex-fuel engine with two-stage supercharging that is believed to produce somewhere in the neighborhood of 800 horsepower.

Power is channeled to all-four wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission while Bugatti also developed a unique suspension and special ceramic brakes for the sports saloon.




Bugatti Brings the 16C Galibier Concept Sedan to Los Angeles - New Photo Album Released


Read more
Instead of exhibiting its new 16C Galibier concept car at international motor shows for us plebeians to see, Bugatti has chosen to display its four-seat limousine exclusively to selected customers and what the firm describes as "opinion-makers" from around the globe. Following the presentation of the concept at a private event at its Molsheim headquarters on the eve of the Frankfurt Show in September, the VW Group owned company now brought the 16C Galibier, which is named after an alpine pass along the Tour de France, to Los Angeles at the Beverly Hills Ace Gallery.

Designed to be if not the, one of the most exclusive and powerful limousine in the world, the 16C Galibier packs a 16-cylinder, 8-litre engine with two-stage supercharging that was developed as a flex-fuel engine that can optionally be run on ethanol. It also features four-wheel drive, specially developed ceramic brakes and a new suspension design.

There's still no official word if the concept will head into production but if VW's decision makers give the green light, expect to see the car making its market debut in the next three to four years.
