Bugatti Bourdeaux is actually the Bugatti 16 C Galibier: Official details and images of the concept released
UPDATE: Promo video added.
In the past few months, we have been teased with an all-new 4-door Bugatti. Most of us linked the new ultra-luxury sedan with the term “Bourdeaux”. However, Bugatti has just revealed official images and details of the sedan, and we can now drop the “Bourdeaux” word for good since the auto maker calls it the Bugatti 16 C Galibier.
According to Bugatti, the Galibier, which is still in its concept phase, is “intended to be the most exclusive, elegant, and powerful four door automobile in the world.” It was presented to selected customers last weekend and it features an 8.0 liter 16-cylinder powerplant with twostage supercharging which should produce between 800 and 1000HP. Apart from petrol, it can also run on ethanol. It has an all wheel drive setup, ceramic brakes and a sports-tuned suspension.
The interior, among others, has two centrally located main instruments, a removable Reverso Tourbillon clock (made by Parmigiani, a Swiss maker of fine watches) and a large LCD screen mounted on the centre console. The instrument panel has been mounted in the middle of the dash to help keep the rear passengers constantly informed of the actual speed. Furthermore, the removable Reverso Tourbillon clock can be worn on the wrist thanks to a cleverly designed leather strap.
Just like the leaked teaser image, the Bugatti 16 C Galibier has four exhaust tailpipes on each side and features a vertical third brake light. We also know that the wings and the side doors are finished in polished aluminium while the front end has large LED headlights. The concept will not be unveiled in Frankfurt, instead it will be officially revealed sometime today or tomorrow. Continue reading to view an image gallery.
