Bugatti Galibier Super Saloon launch delayed further due to slow progress
The latest information on the four door cousin of Bugatti Veyron, Galibier is that its launch has been delayed due to slow progress. Wolfgang Durheimer, Chairman…
Galibier was seen in a concept form in 2009 following which the company announced that the vehicle was due to be launched in 2013 or 2014 while prices were expected to be in the $1.4 million range. However development is still underway and the four door will take its time to be launched though it will definitely make its way into markets in the future. The Galibier is said to be a W16 engined vehicle with two stage superchargers offering 1000 bhp power while it will be capable of acceleration from 0 to 100 kmph in 3.5 seconds.
In an interview with Autocar, Schreiber stated that, “The Veyron and its derivatives are very focused on the needs of the customers”, he said. “If you switch to a different type of car, it is very necessary to evaluate the needs of the customer. The launch date is still not decided yet. We are still working on the Galibier project. but I would say it is more difficult to fulfill all the requirements for Bugatti customers than Bentley customers. The four-door is absolutely necessary. The hero car, the Veyron, is alone. I think customers would be very pleased if we had a second car, so I support it very much.”
