Bugatti 16c Galibier: 2013 production

the good folks over at Bugatti Passion are reporting that the supersedan 16c Galibier has received a green light to go into production in 2013.  Supposedly the Veyron ends its production in 2012.  Whether there will be a “GT” version of the Veyron pushing 1300hp (!!!) is still a question mark….but the signs point towards it being a possibility!

The price of the next Bugatti supersedan? $1.4 milion.  I’ll wait for the CPO one on discount, thanksverymuch.

NEW Bugatti on the way?

373911796

Rumour, according to Jalopnik this morning was that there was some sort of ‘secret’ Bugatti 100 year anniversary event, by invitation only—where photos of a special car which is gonna be released to coincide with the 100 year anniversary, were leaked (see above photo!).  Supposedly, this car is going to be debut’d at the Frankfurt Auto Show in the autumn.

Rumours are saying it’s a sedan—they’re probably right, but here’s hoping that it is a grand touring coupe.  That would be FLY.

something like this, maybe?
