Bugatti Galibier 16C May Hit Production As Royale

The luxury concept car known currently as the Bugatti Galibier 16C sedan is rumored to have received a green light for production.  If this is true, there are also rumors that it may be released under the name ‘Royale’ rather than Galibier.  Onward to a short Bugatti history lesson!

Bugatti luxury car concepts, the Galibier 16C or Royale

In the late 1920s, Bugatti released just 6 examples of a Type 41, commonly known as the Royale.  It was a 21-foot long behemoth weighing in at 7,000 pounds and packing a 12.7-liter engine, and it was designed for royalty.  Unfortunately, just 3 Bugatti Royales sold.

Let’s hope the new Royale fares better than its predecessor!  Word is that the Galibier/Royale (whatever it turns out to be) will offer over-the-top opulence and an 8.0-liter turbocharged W-16 engine kicking out 800 horses.  I feel certain that just a handful of these models will be produced to a pre-existing client base!
