The Bugatti 16C Galibier - yeah, the same concept that we saw in Geneva earlier this year - was spotted out and about and getting some sun recently in Molsheim, France, leading to more speculation that the car may be further along in the production pipeline than we thought.
We don’t know for certain what the 16C Galibier is doing outside Bugatti headquarters at this time since the rumored launch for the super-duper luxury car isn’t scheduled for at least a few more years - possibly in 2013 - when the brand’s current top dog, the Bugatti Veyron, is eventually phased out. If we can speculate, though, it looks like the 16C Galibier is currently being shown out on private shows to the interested - and obscenely rich - customers who may want a piece of the pie if and when it’s released.
According to Bugatti, feedback for the 16C Galibier has been overwhelmingly positive saying that the 16C Galibier is "the most exclusive, elegant, and powerful four-door automobile in the world."
With a twin-supercharged 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine with 800 PS to 1,000 PS, it’s hard not to argue that assumption, but similar to the Veyron, the 16C Galibier is likewise expected to come with a pretty hefty price tag which, according to Bugatti, could be up to $1.31 million.
