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.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

I agree with you! When all of this is finished, I also sure that the turn out will be outrageous. And many wealthy businessmen will buy and own this one. I am really amazed with Buggati cars.

Maybe, after all has been done with this car, it would be very outrageous.. Outrageous enough to satisfy the car enthusiasts that are waiting for so long for the launching of this car..

Tuatara is soon to break the veyron ss speed record, and bugatti need to stay in the competition.

Bugatti is French, not British!
