Bugatti Galibier Concept is still on track for production, but it’s going to be significantly different than the concept version.
Bugatti decided they need to alter the design after a number of meetings with the Veyron owners who were invited to come check the car out and give feedback. Bugatti boss Wolfgang Durheimer is backing up the changes.
The new Galibier will be lengthier and provide more rear legroom for the passengers, and that’s the whole point of the car as a four-door uber-lux version of the Veyron. The engine will be the same W16, but the word is that Galibier only gets two turbos rather than four and therefore makes about a 100 hp less.
“I will suggest we continue development, but there will be some remarkable changes from the original concept,” said Durheimer. “The design will be different, especially from the B-pillar back, the ingress and regress to the rear seats will be improved, as will the legroom and ergonomics, the car will be a little longer, and the power of the engine will be at least four figures.”
