Bugatti Galibier Set To Rise From The Ashes; Hotly Tipped To Enter Production

Written By:

French supercar maker Bugatti looks set to introduce a second model to its lineup. According to an Autocar UK report, it could be the Galibier four-door front-engined luxury sedan project that was shelved in 2013.

Bugatti boss Wolfgang Durheimer was the main man behind the Galibier during his first tenure and the project was shelved when he left for Audi in 2013.

However, not that he is back, Durheimer and his team are looking at four different strategic plans for a second Bugatti model and one of them is the Galibier.

Speaking to Autocar UK, Durheimer said, "At present, I am following up four strategic ideas. The Galibier is one. I can't talk about the others."

However, according to Autocar UK's sources, the other three vehicles under consideration are an SUV to rival the upcoming Rolls-Royce Cullinan along with a smaller supercar which will slot in under the Chiron and an all electric 6-metre long sedan that would be the spiritual successor to the Bugatti Royale which was produced between 1927 and 1933.

However, the Galibier is still Duheimer's favourite. Speaking about the Galibier, the Bugatti boss said, "My heart continues to beat for this car, because we had some revolutionary approaches that no one to date has yet dared to place into production." 

If the Galibier does enter production, it will sit on a modified version of the MSB platform which was developed by Porsche.
