Bugatti 16C Galibier concept car unveiled
Last weekend saw the unveiling of the all new Bugatti 16C Galibier concept, a luxury four-door vehicle designed to be unbeatable in elegance, power and exclusivity.
The Veyron has been the cornerstone of Bugatti production in recent years but with the study of new concepts it is clear the future beyond the successful series is now well under the microscope.
The Galibier features doors and wings in polished aluminium while the rest of the body is a flashy dark blue carbon-fibre especially woven to shimmer in the light.
Never venturing far from Bugatti’s traditional sporty design, the concept has managed to combine this athletic profile with the comfort and grace of a modern four-door vehicle.
Amongst its features are the usual radiator grille and large round LED headlights, while a true highlight is the Galibier’s engine that sits beneath the bonnet which folds back on both sides.
A 16 cylinder, eight litre flex-fuel engine powers the vehicle which can also be run on ethanol.
Inside the car can be seen a basic dash panel that exhibits two centrally-located main instruments that can be seen by even those passengers in the back and keep all informed of the current speed.
Ceramic brakes, four-wheel drive and a new suspension design are included as standard.
