Wow love the body lines, specially the one which starts from the center till the end of the boot with integrated stop lamp.

Just came across this link:

Bugatti Galibier: big bad Bug - BBC Top Gear

It's amazing that they are planning to have a top speed of 350 kmph on this huge monster.

The design is somehow love it or hate it and I hate it. If I had the moolah to buy such an exclusive car I woun't want it to look like an ugly bug.

Interesting!

Finally, the existing Bugatti clientele can buy a 4-door, 4-seater that is worthy of sharing parking space with their Veyrons. This is of course if the Missus complains that her billionaire husband isn't the family man he ought to be!

The rear has Panamera written all over it! Other than that, it's quite a looker and would look at home in a rap video! The chrome might be overdone a bit, but then nothing is enough for Lil Wayne or Simon Cowell.

Well, you can't say it doesn't look like the Panamera!

Anyway, I think this 16 C Galibier Concept is loosely based on this, the Bugatti EB112: (although I might be wrong!)

Quite possible.Maybe VW did some digging in the Bugatti office before going to the drawing board.
Here is another example : this sketch was made by bugatti in 99'. we all know its name now.
