New Video: Bugatti Galibier 16C

If we had to place all our money on red, we'd say that Bugatti will eventually green light the 16C Galibier for production. The car may be the most ridiculous, over-the-top creation since the personal jetpack, but Bugatti seems to be doing too much with it to just let it wither on the vine. They've tinkered the car to Wolfgang Durheimer's perfecting demands and have let rumors run rampant, unrequited by any denial. Now, about 2.5 years after the concept was first revealed, Bugatti has released a random promo. There's just no way they let this hyper-sedan disappear without a production run.

With the Veyron nearing mandatory retirement, Bugatti must find something to fill its one-car lineup if it intends to continue having a presence in the auto market. And the only thing that we've really seen that could do that is the 16C Galibier. We're guessing that VW is just waiting for the right economic conditions to announce a $2 million ultra-premium sedan that puts basically every luxury and performance sedan in the world to shame.

The 16C Galibier is like nothing we've ever seen. It's basically a Veyron soul in a larger, more comfortable body. Bugatti recently bumped the output of the Galibier's 8.0-liter W-16 to a Veyron 16.4-like 1,000 horses. If you like simple math, put half the potential $2 million price tag toward the massive engine and accompanying performance technology and half toward the positively opulent, extravagant interior and beautiful body.

Despite the 16C's stratospheric projected price, Bugatti has indicated that its production run could stretch as high as 1,500 examples - several times the production run of the Veyron.

Enough chatter, take a look at the stunning 16C Galibier in the dramatic, new video below. Then ponder whether it's worth dedicating a few years toward going back to business/law/dental school just for the chance of earning enough to buy one.
