Bugatti 16C Galibier could be priced at $1.3 million
In the event that the Bugatti 16C Galibier concept goes into production – which a lot of people seem to believe – don’t expect it to come cheap.
And by cheap, we mean less than a million dollars.
As the successor to the omniscient Veyron, the 16C Galibier is shaping up to become a worthy ‘replacement’ to Bugatti’s record-breaking super car. Though not as powerful as its 1001 horsepowered predecessor, the 16C Galibier does adopt a few things from the Veyron, particularly it’s ginormous 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine.
Despite the same engine powering the two supercars, the Galibier is expected to come short of the Veyron’s record-setting speed, mainly because the former is a little bit bulkier than the latter and, at the same time, will only carry with it a relatively pedestrian ‘800 horsepower engine.
As a result, the Galibier is expected to reach speeds of ‘only’ 220 mph, compared to the 250+ the Veyron has been known to achieve.
Nevertheless, the Galibier is still expected to fetch quite a hefty price. According to Autocar, in the likelihood that Bugatti’s newest toy reaches production in 2013, expect it to be sold for around £900,000 – that’s a mind-numbing $1.3 million in the US.
Told you it wasn’t cheap.
