According to two people familiar with the matter, Bugatti has won approval from parent Volkswagen AG to build the Bugatti 16C Galibier sedan (which looks like a station wagon/shooting brake). The move will add the brand’s first four-door model to its lineup.

The two people said that the production Bugatti 16C Galibier will cost around $1.4 million – no word on how many Bugatti plans on building and when they will see the light of day.

No this is not a April Fools joke.

Refresher: The Bugatti 16 C Galibier was one of the several concepts which the company is considering for a future model. Power comes from a 8.0L 16-cylinder engine that features two-stage supercharging. The engine is flex-fuel compatible, meaning it can run on ethanol. The Bugatti Galibier rides on a four-wheel-drive system and features ceramic brakes and a new suspension design that enables “agile, always-sure handling of a saloon of this size.”
