Has A Bugatti Four-Door Just Been Scooped?

What you’re looking at could be a new Bugatti model which we thought may never see the light of day; a four-door.

This single image was published on Twitter, though it has since been removed. However, Carscoops’ reader Marco saved it and sent it over to us.

“He didn’t provide any other information with the post, but you can see the outline of a horseshoe-shaped front grill and Chiron-like headlights,” said Marco. “There doesn’t look to be enough space underneath the front bonnet for a W16, or maybe a V8 even. My guess would be that the car is all-electric, whether just a concept, a commissioned one-off or a production car.

The car was apparently snapped outside Bugatti’s Design Studio in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Up front, similarities between this vehicle and the Chiron are obvious with the marque’s familiar horseshoe grille and headlights which appear identical to the Chiron. However, the car’s wheelbase appears significantly longer and there seems to be side windows much larger than you’d expect to find on a coupe. The roof also seems more elongated than existing Bugatti models.

So what exactly are we looking at?

All indications point towards it being some kind of previously-unseen Bugatti. This could mean it is a concept or a production model but it definitely appears large enough to comfortably hold four passengers.

One curious thing about the vehicle pictured is that if it is a sedan, the short front-end clearly isn’t large enough to support an engine, ruling out the possibility of the vehicle being a direct descendant of the front-engine Galibier concept from almost a decade ago. Instead, it appears as if the vehicle adopts a mid-engine layout.

In an interview with Automotive News last year, former Bugatti president Wolfgang Durheimer said the idea of a four-door Bugatti isn’t dead and appeared to leave the door open for the Chiron’s successor to be a sedan of some kind.

    Please oh pretty please be a sexy Galibier like 4-Door. Save for the details that would need to be updated the Galibier is GORGEOUS.

    OMG please Bugatti build a four door hyper GT ! They’ve mastered the art of Grand Touring and with VAG’s expertise with luxury limousines (Bentley Mulsanne, Audi A8 W12, VW Phaeton W12…) i’m sure they can achieve a much better result than the Lagonda Taraf at their pricepoint.

    The proportions suggest an electric model with one motor per axle. Maybe a concept car to be shown on an automotive event sooner that we think?

    I’m surprised it’s taken this long for Bugatti to manufacture a 4 door model. But then they sell all the coupes they can produce.

    hhmmm…

  • I would love to see the revival of the Bugatti limousine, there is rumors of Bugatti hybrid GT 2+2 called Atlantic. I wonder if this is the car or they just testing the market to produce four door limousine.

    Would be interesting since actually Piech want Bugatti to make cars that surpassed Rolls-Royce in the beginning (He failed to buy R-R and get Bentley instead). But customer suggestions demands Veyron to be produced instead.

  • BobV12

    That would be what, the fourth sedan concept in 20 years ? For now none has been produced in serie.

    I’d be better creating my own brand and copy their “concept” so I could offer it to others fond of the Galibier like me.

      I always forget how much i loved this concept when it came out. it is just sublime.

    • Galibier is a miss opportunity, supercharged version of W16 sounds epic to me as well.
