At the 2009 Geneva Motor Show, Bugatti celebrated its 100th anniversary with the Bugatti Veyron Bleu Centenaire. Over the weekend, Bugatti once again celebrated its 100th anniversary with four special-edition Veyron models that graced the stage at the Villa d”Este Concorso d”Eleganza. Apparently, Bugatti isn’t done celebrating just yet.
Come Sept. at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, Bugatti will once again celebrate its 100th year by unveiling a Bugatti sedan by the name of the Bugatti Royale.
According to AutoExpress, the new Bugatti Royale is inspired by the 1927 Type 41 Royale and will be more expensive than its coupe sibling. Sources say that the Bugatti Royale will be made in a very limited production run for the company’s loyal customers.
Bugatti will be teaming up with fellow VW Group brand Bentley to develop a new front-engine sedan platform. The Royale will have four-wheel-drive and will carry the 8.0L quad-turbo W16 engine just like the Veyron mated to a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. 0 to 60 mph is expected to come in 3 seconds with a top speed of 250 mph.
Sales of the Bugatti Royale will begin in 3-years.
