Bugatti’s future sedan to be built on Audi A8 platform
The maker that has brought us the famous record-breaking Veyron supercar is about to bite the hand that feeds them by ending its production. Instead, Bugatti plans on spending their time building luxury sedans. Right now, the child in us is blowing raspberries at the French company.
The new Bugatti luxury sedan is expected to debut sometime in 2014, but not much else is known about the model. Now, thanks to the German publication, Spiegel, we have just a couple of more details to share.
Now that Audi and Porsche are responsible for all the luxury models in the Volkswagen Group, the future Bugatti sedan will end up being built on the same platform as the Audi A8. Being a Bugatti model, it will be limited to only 300 units and will carry a price tag similar to the Veyron, meaning that only few of us will have the chance to actually drive one.
The sedan model will feature design elements from the Bugatti’s latest concept, the 16 C Galibier. The 16 C concept features the traditional Bugatti radiator complimented by big round LED lit headlamps and the clamshell running the length of the vehicle, which became synonymous with the brand identity under Jean Bugatti in the Type 57.
