In a recent interview with German Magazine Auto Motor und Sport, CEO and President of Bugatti, Wolfgang Durheimer, confirmed the new high-performance Galibier will hit the market in Fall 2012. Apparently, Durheimer is hoping for four-digit sales figures from its luxury whip, which is being pushed as a more roomy, powerful, and faster version of the Veyron: “The car has a much higher value that the Veyron – with lot of trunk volume and a four-seat plus one configuration. We are taking into consideration various scenarios, from 500, to even 1,000 or 1,500 units produced.”
Considering the Galibier’s 16-cylinder engine (rumored to generate between 800 to 1,000 hp), which Durheimer claims will “define the undisputed leadership in its segment,” we’re confident the sedan will live up to its hype. The capo also touched on the possible price tag, stating, “We will set the price at the end. The amount is expected to be of seven figures. Today, the Veyron range is priced between 1.2 and 2 million euros. In the end, the Galibier is the absolute benchmark in the four-door sedan segment.” Save your chips fellas.
