Bugatti 16C Galibier Production Car Dubbed as “Royale”
Bugatti 16C Galibier four-door concept sedan was announced by Volkswagen Group back in April. The Bugatti 16C Galibier vehicles open up a whole new market for exotic car manufacturers and it makes good sense for Bugatti to get involved.
The 800-horsepower Bugatti 16C Galibier four-door concept sedan will reportedly get a different name when it reaches the market in limited numbers. The four-door exotic will be called the “Royale” and we can expect to see it arrive sometime next year, according to Holland automotive source.
Back in the late 20s, Bugatti made the Type 41, which was commonly known as the Royale. It was a big four-door saloon that was aimed exclusively at clients of high birth. However, only six were ever built, and half found owners at the time.
As for the modern-day Bugatti 16C Galibier four-door concept sedan a.k.a Royale, it will reportedly be motivated by a front-mounted 8.0-liter turbocharged W-16 engine rated at 800-horsepower mated to a dual-clutch gearbox. The successor to the Veyron supercar will thus keep the engine block but will uses two superchargers instead of four turbochargers. The Bugatti 16C Galibier four-door concept sedan a.k.a Royale will actually have more torque than the Veyron, which will give it a jerky drive that befits a hyperluxury saloon.
Bugatti 16C Galibier four-door concept sedan receives carbon fiber for its saloon. An exception to this will be the car’s doors and wings, which will use aluminum. This will allow the car to maintain a decent overall weight, helping it achieve outstanding dynamic capabilities. Needless to say, it will also be exclusive, as Bugatti only makes 50 cars a year at the moment. The only problem is that the Bugatti 16C Galibier four-door concept sedan now named like a rapper’s car of choice.
