Bugatti Galibier to go on sale in late 2012
The Bugatti limousine has been under development since quite a while now. This is the car that will make up for the shortcomings of the Veyron. A four-door, four seat luxury limousine that can match the speeds of the Veyron. In a recent interview given to a German magazine, President and CEO of Bugatti, Wolfgang Durheimer said that the Bugatti limousine which is to replace the Veyron will arrive by autumn of 2012. Apart from this, not much is known about the car, in fact the Volkswagen owned supercar brand has not even decided on the final name for the car.
Some reports suggest the car might be called the Bugatti Royale and will feature a similar powerplant as the Veyron. The four door limo will also be capable of doing speeds its two-door cousin can achieve and will be placed as the ultimate luxury limousine money can buy. Speaking of money, this car ain’t gonna be cheap by any standards. This will be a car that will set a benchmark for others. The Veyron came with a price tag of a 1.2 million euros and the Galibier/ Royale is expected to sport a similar price tag of over a million euros.
Coming to the engine, the car will get the same 16 cylinder nuclear bomb that the Veyron had. The W16 engine in the Galibier will be placed in the front, unlike the Veyron and might churn out around 800-1000 horsepower making this the most powerful limousine on the planet. Inside, passengers will be treated to the finest of exotic materials. So, a perfect automobile for you if your name starts with Sheikh. A very few will be able to afford one and if you are one of them few, then you need to hurry up as Bugatti will only make a limited number of Galibier limousines. The number could range between 500-1500 units only.
