This is probably not the first time you have heard about the upcoming four-door four-seater coming from Bugatti. The concept version will be revealed at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show in celebration of company’s 100th anniversary, and production is expected to begin sometime within the next three years.
The Royale sedan will be inspired by the 1927 Type 41 Royale and will be no less expensive and exclusive as Bugatti’s current supercar, the 16 cylinder, quad turbo, 1001 HP Veyron .
Developed in collaboration with Bentley, the new Royale sedan will be built using the next Arnage’s platform and will incorporate much of the technology already found in the Veyron. Like the four-wheel-drive system, the 8.0 Liter boosted W16 engine. In the saloon version, the engine will be detuned to deliver only 987 HP and 1,250 Nm of torque. Although less than the coupe, the Royale will still be able to sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3 seconds and hit a top speed of over 250 MPH.
