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.

I would automatically assume the person getting out of this car was here to kill me yet some how that’s a good thing.

An unaltered symbol of excess and not necessarily a good thing either. And what’s with the hatchback?

Front is gorgeous but not digging the back still. And not too impressed with dashboard, looks plain and boring.

Wow! that was a nice video and am impressed because the glass went broken with the sound of its engine. Well, I think this ready for production and am sure this will achieve success in the market.

Yes, the word sedan is just right for this baby. Looks like an car with a touch of an SUV.

The big, heavy 16C Galibier will be like its engine-sharing sibling in terms of performance, only even worse—cumbersome and useless on a track. Its VW-sourced powertrain has proven itself terribly unreliable, and the interior of the current prototype is another letdown; it’s far from modern or practical yet has just enough modern design cues to prevent it from having classic appeal.

If you can afford something of this coin and are in the market for a high-profile, big, solid but still speedy luxury sedan, buy the Bentley.

Looks like it’ll be a tight competitor of Aston martin Rapide and Porsche Panamera.
