Bugatti 16C Galibier: call it Royale

Bugatti 16C GalibierIf the entry into production of 16C Galibier is almost proved, the future sedan Bugatti still leaves open the possibility of the designation. Royal is on the lips.

Maybe it is one of those noise corridors for us to wait or test public reaction, but it seems that the quiet house Bugatti is seriously considering reviving the surname of one that remains one of most famous and legendary French productions.
After the tribute to Paul Veyron Galibier and the concept is more than ever cling to heritage Bugatti, taking as reference the epitome of opulence automobile, symbolized by the Type 41 best known as the Royale.

Galibier Bugatti evoked another embodiment, the 4-door version of the Type 57. Less grandiose, but more subtle about the cultural reference to the insiders. But since it will remain, as does the Veyron at the top of the pantheon mechanics, he had to put it explicitly in the royal heir.

Remember that the super-sedan concept announced by the 16C Galibier was confirmed by the management of Bugatti earlier this year. A also confirmed the reappointment of 8 liters 4 turbo W16 of the Veyron, in a slightly more civilized setting (about 800 hp …). Visually it should be very close to the concept (very successful, in fact almost a pre-production) and return to the same cockpit layout. Maybe with the chronograph Parmigiani Fleurier made specifically for the 16C Galibier? The refinement should climb at least compared to the Veyron, although some do still see a big Panamera … His arrival is expected in early to late 2012.Bugatti 16C Galibier
