The interiors are oooh la la. But the exteriors, especially the chrome-work looks yuck.

Eeek. 2 Doors. Fast Cars. Both Bugatti and Mr.Porker seem to be going completely off their rockers. Porsche still had the Cayennes success to give it the 'guts' to make the ugly panamera, but Bugatti? Why? And now since VW owns porsche, they might as well just do a badge engineered one with Chrome doors eh!

The rear portion of the car is very stimulating.I guess the 4-Door sports race is hotting up.

This is very disappointing... This new Galibier is not a Bugatti, it's a rebodied Bentley!
Did anyone notice the Bentley Mulsanne underneath?

See here: COACHBUILD.com - Bugatti Mulsanne / Bentley Galibier ?

Thats just because Mulsanne is also powered by the W16. so the Galibier is not based off Mulsanne. Both are a stretched veyron platform. And with longer bodies, they have made it handle like a sedan, but still able to handle massive output. Its nothing but good. As for the design, its still a concept

Sorry, but it's impossible to stretch a mid-engined Veyron carbon fiber monocoque chassis and turn it into a front-engined 4 or 5 seater. According to a dealer this concept is very close to production. Mulsanne is powered by a V8.
Take a look at the hard points comparison again.

Yeah, realized I was wrong after reading the Mulsanne specs. I was basing it off their comment that the engine is a homage to their older 8L. Its indeed a 6.75 V8.

Though am not sure if the chassis of these cars is not similar in construction to the veyron/next phaeton.

The mainly carbon fiber monocoque chassis of the Veyron is NOT modular, so it is in no way suitable for any other configuration. Especially not for a front-engined car.
Google the Veyron's chassis and see for yourself.

the front is not half bad.. the rear however, is, err, 'interesting'!! most of you are drooling over the interiors of the car already!! bugatti has only shown the pics of the drivers seat. the rear seats are the ones which will have all the 'goodies'.. once those pics sre out, then you can all drool!!

16C Galibier shares Bugatti's 8.0 liter 16-cylinder engine with the Veyron model

Why is Bugatti still referring to the 16C Galibier as a concept as it likely prepares the model to be put on display at the Los Angeles auto show?
WCF has previously reported on rumors that Bugatti was taking the 16C Galibier to production. But it seems Bugatti is still not yet ready to make the official announcement on that one.

This is going to be one serious, "torpedo-like" sedan. The 16C Galibier Concept is a four-door saloon - or sedan, or four-door coupe, depending on which nomenclature one prefers for such models. Given that the Galibier will cost somewhere around 900,000 or 984,900 (US$1.4 million), it probably calls for a new name all for itself.

The Galibier will feature Bugatti's 8.0 liter 16-cylinder engine also employed in the Veyron, although the power output is said to be dialed down from the Veyron's 747kW (1001hp) and 1250Nm of torque. Down to what Bugatti still doesn't say in this press release.

What they do mention is how the Galibier is fitted with a tourbilliion clock from Swiss watchmaker Parmigiani that can be removed from the dash and worn as a wristwatch due to a specially designed strap.

Such are the details that make Bugatti the ultra-luxury auto maker which sports as its brand values "Art, Form and Technique."

This chrome junkyard is way too loud for my taste. The exterior is shoutingly gaudy. And eight tail pipes! broader quads(concealing dual pipes if at all) could probably have served the purpose. So much for exclusivity.

I love every aspect of it.
this has been desgined on the line of the legendry type 57SC Atlantic.the 8 tail pipe ,the torpedo body and the split hood are a tribute to the atlantic.

and these days pepole are taking inspiration from there yesteryears model and incorporating it.
for ex bentley continental - taken design clues from the orginal continental type-R
veyron - type 35 C
mulsanne - bentley of 50s ( speically the headlight design )
and v have the SLS ,camaro and the challenger models being revied.
so i guess the retro is in vogue.
