The Bugatti Galibier 16C uses the same W16 engine from the Veyron
The Bugatti Galibier 16C was expected to be the next model to be created by Bugatti. Production of the car was initially slated for 2013, one year after the Veyron's production run was supposed to end. However this production schedule has since been cancelled.

Like the Veyron, the Galibier 16C uses a prominent two-tone color scheme, although for the Galibier 16C concept Bugatti have gone one step further and added a chrome on midnight blue finish.

At the heart of the Bugatti Galibier 16C is the same immense W16 engine from the Veyron. Except where the Veyron's powerplant benefited from four turbochargers the version used in the Galibier 16C is fitted with two, reducing power output to around 800 hp. Power is sent to all four wheels through an 8 speed automatic transmission. No less than 8 exhaust pipes at the rear hint at the massive performance potential.

The doors and front arches of the Galibier 16C are made from aluminium, but the rest of the body is formed from carbon-fibre, as is the front end of the chassis.

The styling of the Bugatti Galibier 16C is influenced by the Bugatti Type 57 Atlantique, as evidenced by the spine which runs down the centre of the car and bisects the rear window. The name recalls a special edition model of the Type 57.
