2013 Bugatti Galibier 16C, a 1000 HP sedan, was first shown as a concept in 2010. At that time we knew very few details about this car. In 2010 we some rumors said that when this car will hit the production line, will cost about $1.4 million and it will use a 16-cylinder engine that can run on both biofuel and gasoline. We also knew that this luscious limousine will bring back the dual-clutch gearbox and it will get a hybrid option.
Now Bugatti President Wolfgang Dürheimer has revealed new details about the 2013 Galibier 16C, also known as “Royale” in an interview with German magazine Auto Motor und Sport.
It seems that some rumors were right. 2013 Bugatti Galibier 16C will be outfitted with a sixteen-cylinder engine producing between 800hp and 1,000hp and even if it seems hard to believe, a hybrid version will be available. Dürheimer said that the expected “leader” in the luxury segment will have a series of 500 to 1,500 units. Also the initial speculated price was almost confirmed by the German executive, who hinted a price tage of more than € 1,000,000, but the official price tag has not been set.
The expected released of the Galibier aka Royale is planned for 2012.
