All the hype surrounding Bugatti ’s Veyron successor - the Galibier - is being put on the shelf for the foreseeable future. This latest development from the Bugatti camp comes as a serious blow to the supercar maker after plans were already in place to have the Galibier begin production in the coming weeks.
But ever since the company decided to hold back the release of the Galibier because "it wasn’t outrageous enough", the wheels have completely fallen off of the the Bugatti luxury supercar.
Apart from the expected performance enhancements on the Galibier, Bugatti has also decided to completely redesign the concept to make it more stylish and comfortable. The company has modified the rear end of the 5.36 meter long vehicle and have allowed for better accessibility via the rear doors, as well as more room in the rear seating area.
So what’s the latest surrounding the Galibier? Well, according to Auto Motor und Sport, production of the car has been delayed until 2015 at the earliest. According to Bugatti’s Chief Executive, Wolfgang Durheimer, the vehicle is still missing the release of the Group Board. The three-year delay behind the Galibier’s production is mighty significant, especially since the Veyron is on its last legs. Let’s just hope that Bugatti has something up their sleeves to expedite the car’s release.
