Bugatti Galibier 16C Name Changed to Royale?

Bugatti Galibier

The 800-horsepower Bugatti Galibier 16C concept has received the green light over the past few months, followed by rumours suggesting a hybrid version. Today new information was released by our colleagues at Autoblog.nl. They stated that the Galibier 16C will have a new name; Royale.

The name is not new to the Bugatti family. In 1927 the historical Bugatti Royale was released with a limited series of 25. Only six were ever created, three sold.

The production version is said to be powered by a W16 engine which provides 800 horsepower. The production will be located in Molsheim, France where the Veyron is made. The Galibier is expected to cost about 1 million Euros ($ 1.4 million) and will enter market in 2013, but production starts before the end of this year. Bugatti expects to sell a total of 3,000 pieces in less than six years. Ambitious numbers!

    @Vador – hilarious, but I suspect the customers are supposed to be mostly outside Germany. I guess China, middle east, USA. So maybe you should pray for those people.

    Holly mother of all saints, I never thought a car could be uglier than the panamera, but I was wrong. This thing sets a new benchmark in the “makes me sick” category. Please God, stop being so tough with the germans, give them some taste… just a little bit of good taste.

    3.000 units? Sounds ambitious from the moment they havent sold 300 units of the veyron yet…
