Bugatti Galibier On Track to Get Over 1,000 Horsepower and Top Speed of 235mph 17

Bugatti’s super-sedan, introduced as the Galibier concept in 2009, has been spinning on the rumor mill for a few years now. The recent developments in the production of what will be the world’s fastest production sedan ever, have moved forward with CEO Wolfgang Durheimer reassuring the guys at Car and Driver that the super-sedan is being pursued “with high energy”.

The Bugatti Galibier, in its stunning concept form, looks to be the ultimate successor to the Veyron. Now multimillionaires and billionaires can transport a few additional friends to the party faster than anyone else on the road when the Galibier becomes a reality. Car and Driver speculates on the idea of the Galibier having even more power than first imagined, possibly a ridiculous 1,400 horsepower. For a sedan to reach 235 mph, that figure may be reasonable.

The new Galibier is rumored to be introduced under the name “Royale”. The priority of the upcoming super-sedan, as Durheimer puts it, “…is sheer power, not a hybrid.” So don’t expect any heavy batteries or electric motors in this puppy. Purportedly, the design elements from the original Galibier concept have slightly changed. The final version will still need to be given the go-ahead by VW CEO Martin Winterkorn, supervisory board head Ferdinand Piech and the Durheimer.

Current Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse

Recent reports have confirmed Bugatti working on a successor to the Veyron, which could end up being a hybrid. Chief engineer Jens Schulenburg, told Auto Express that “We are working on the next super-sports car.”

Of course the Bugatti Galibier, appearing as stunning Luxury-Exotic concept a few years ago, will still be in the new lineup expected to debut in 2014 alongside of the Veyron successor. What tips us off as the Veyron successor potentially being a hybrid, is Schulenburg saying “The big challenge on the next car will be reducing weight – we are looking at some incredible technologies, such as wheels made entirely from carbon fibre. Hybrids are definitely something we’re looking at, too.”

Could you imagine a new Veyron with over 1,000 horsepower sporting a hodgepodge of electric motors and a big petrol engine? I sure could, as long as it makes some cool noise and pushes the current top speed of 268 mph to the next few notches.
