Bugatti could produce the Galibier saloon

Bugatti could produce the Galibier saloon

It’s been close to seven years now since Bugatti first showcased the Galibier concept car at the Frankfurt motor show in 2009. Reports now suggest that Bugatti is considering its options to bring this project back to life.

Once the Galibier gets the go-ahead, this four seater luxury saloon will lock horns with the upcoming replacement for the Rolls-Royce Phantom. Bugatti’s saloon could be underpinned by a reworked version of Porsche’s MSB platform, and is expected to retain the front-engined layout. As Bugatti is a part of the VW group, it means that the final call will need to come from them. If VW believes otherwise, then the company may need to re-focus on a luxurious SUV to compete with the Bentley Bentayga.

Sources add that the Galibier was to go into production way back in 2011, but Bugatti boss Wolfgang Durheimer suddenly moved to Audi in 2013. This ceased development of the car as the new boss began development on the Veyron replacement. With Wolfgang Durheimer back on the Bugatti panel since 2015, he has once again decided to put the Galibier back on track. Nevertheless, even if the Galibier gets the green signal, its iunlikely that it will be launched while the Chiron is around.
