Bugatti 16C Galibier shows its face to customers and critics
Unvealed in September at Bugatti's headquarters in Molsheim, the noble concept 16C Galibier was officially shown to customers and critics at the prestigious Ace Gallery in Beverly Hills. Alasdair Stewart, Bugatti's Director of Sales, Marketing and After Sales announced that the 16C Galibier is just one of few concepts that the brand is considering for the future.
The new four-door concept vehicle is designed to be the most exclusive, powerful and noble car in world. The 16C Galibier's body is shaped smooth and beautifully to match both - sportiness and elegance, it features handmade carbon fibre parts coloured in dark blue, combined with polished aluminium wings and doors. The Type 35 inspired, torpedo-like Galibier is powered by a 16-cylinder, 8-litre engine with two-stage supercharging, which can work on ethanol optionally. The agile handling is secured by a specially developed ceramic brakes, four-wheel drive and new suspension design. Following the exterior lines of the vehicle, the interior design strikes with extremely natural vision and innovative highlights. One of them is the Parmigiani's removable tourbillion clock, which can be worn on the wrist thanks to a cleverly designed leather strap.
