Bugatti Galibier Not Happening, No Faster Veyron: Report Photo:

Bugatti will not be building a production version of its four-door Galibier concept, nor will it be making a faster Veyron, according to reports out of Europe.

Speaking with Top Gear UK, Bugatti boss Dr Wolfgang Schreiber reportedly quashed rumours of an extra-special Veyron to see the model into retirement, while also ruling out the Galibier as a potential Veyron replacement.

Dr Schreiber said that the current 883kW output and 432km/h top speed for the Veyron SuperSport was “enough”.

“We will not produce a ‘SuperVeyron' or Veyron Plus, definitely,” Dr Schreiber said.

“There will be no more power. [883kW] is enough for the chapter of Veyron and its derivatives.”

The Bugatti boss said the Veyron was “on top of all super-sportscar brands”, and that the iconic model’s replacement would not be the Galibier or any other four-door variant.

"We have talked many, many times about the Galibier, but this car will not come because it would confuse our customers,” Dr Schreiber said.

“It's easier for current owners, and others who are interested, to understand if we do something similar to the Veyron [next] - and that is what we will do - there will not be a four-door Bugatti."

Schreiber said the Veyron’s replacement – currently in the development phase - would “redefine the benchmarks”, claiming the current Veyron was still the model by which other supercar-makers were judged.

Hybrid power will also be a consideration for Bugatti’s next supercar, potentially following in the footsteps of McLaren, Porsche and Ferrari.

All 300 Bugatti Veyron coupes have sold out. Of the 150 roadsters built, 107 have found new homes and just 43 remain unsold.
