Bugatti 16C Galibier Concept

Right before the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show rolled around, Bugatti unveiled a new concept called the Bugatti 16C Galibier Concept. The concept was said to be one of the several concepts that the company is considering for a future model. Well, according to AutoExpress, the 16C Galibier Concept has been given the green light for production with a £900,000 price tag ($1.4 million USD).

The publication reports that the production Bugatti 16C Galibier will carry the same 8.0L 16-cylinder engine as the Veyron and will be far more luxurious than its coupe sibling. However, it will still pack a lot of punch with a rumored output of 800-hp, which will be transferred to the wheels via an 8-speed automatic transmission. Top speed is expected to come in at 220 mph.

So far, a launch date of 2013 is being rumored. Stay tuned.
