Report: Bugatti will pass on a production Galibier and “Super Veyron”

Many of us have been wondering, “what’s next?”, for Bugatti’s next ventures in super-supercar plans. And admittedly, the Veyron is a seriously tough act to follow. Previous rumors have suggested that Bugatti is in the works with a four-door version of the Veyron, which was hinted with the 2009 Galibier Concept. Heck, even a “Super Veyron” with more than the SuperSport’s 1183hp was in the works.

Now, after speaking with Top Gear, Bugatti’s head honcho, Dr. Wolfgang Schreiber, has apparently told the famed British outlet that neither will make it into production.

Schreiber was quoted for describing the current SuperSport’s top speed of 268 mph “enough,” while a production Galibier would just “confuse” Bugatti customers. As a result, neither are possible options for the unique supercar maker.

This means Bugatti could be opening up their possibilities to hybridization in lieu of the recent pushes from McLaren with the P1, Porsche with the 918, and Ferrari with the LaFerrari.

Though as of now, Schreiber says it is way too early to tell. That of course means, only time will tell as to what’s up Bugatti’s sleeves for the next chapter.
