Bugatti 16 C Galibier Concept - 1600

Rumours suggest that the Bugatti Galibier 16C has been approved for production and will go on sale around 2013 at a price of about £900,000 . The Galibier is a four-door concept car that will probably earn the title of the world's fastest sedan.

It shares its 16 cylinder 8.0-litre powerplant with the Veyron but its power will be detuned from the coupe's 747kW (1001hp) and 1250Nm of torque. Although power will be less, top speed is expected to reach 220mph. Driving the wheels will be a new 8-speed automatic transmission fitted in place of the Veyron's DSG.

And although the Galibier is a far more luxurious proposition than its coupé brother, it will still pack a punch. Boasting a detuned 800bhp version of the Veyron's engine, plus a lightweight body made of aluminium and carbon fibre, its top speed should be a highly impressive 220mph.

The 16C is also set to get an eight-speed torque converter automatic transmission instead of the Veyron's twin-clutch DSG unit.

We hope to see the Galibier in the metal at one of the upcoming international motor shows such as Los Angeles or Detroit.
