Bugatti replacement: More luxury, fewer horses
Automotive News reports on Bugatti's future model plans.
Bugatti, Volkswagen Group's exotic sports-car brand, is ending production of its Veyron and will replace it with the tamer but more luxurious Galibier.
16C Galibier: The four-seat sedan is expected to go on sale in 2013 for about $1.5 million. Only 300 will be produced.
The Galibier, which is made of carbon fiber and aluminum, will use the Veyron's 8.0-liter W-16 engine, but will employ superchargers rather than turbochargers--producing 800 horsepower.
Veyron 16.4: The limited-edition, two-passenger Veyron, which was introduced in 2005, is near the end of its 300-unit production run. So far, 260 have been built. The 1,200 horsepower, 268 mph Super Sport edition debuted this summer at a price range between $2.2 million and $2.6 million, including shipping.
