When production ends for its limited-edition two-passenger Veyron, Bugatti may turn to an ultraluxurious four-door sedan called the 16 C Galibier.
A group of wealthy opinion-makers was invited last month to Bugatti's headquarters in Molsheim, France, for the unveiling of the four-door, all-wheel-drive concept.
16 C Galibier: Expect a sticker price in the range of $1.5 million for the 16 C Galibier, which Bugatti intends to be the most exclusive and powerful four-door automobile in the world.
The 8.0-liter 16-cylinder engine has two-stage superchargers and can run on either gasoline or ethanol. Bugatti estimates a top speed of 240 mph.
The concept car's body uses carbon fiber and polished aluminum extensively.
If approved, production might begin in late 2012 or early 2013 when the Veyron 16.4 is expected to be discontinued.
Veyron 16.4: Bugatti is making various versions of this midengine, 1,001-hp $1.4 million-plus sports car even though the total production run is limited to 300 units.
The latest model is the open-top Grand Sport Sang Bleu. The car has blue tinted carbon fiber on the exterior and touches of blue on the wheel rims. It was unveiled in August.
