The Galibier was originally scheduled to bring a back seat to the Bugatti lineup in 2013. It was later pushed back until 2015 and ultimately canceled. Fans of the ultra-luxury sedan were disappointed, but they may not be completely out of luck. As it turns out, Bugatti is considering a sedan as a followup to the Chiron it just unveiled.
Speaking with Bloomberg, Bugatti head Wolfgang Duerheimer said, “I can’t get the idea for a four-door limousine out of my head. It’s one of the options we might look into again as a possible next project.”
Maintaining Bugatti’s brand image while expanding production to include a second model would be a test for the automaker, especially since Volkswagen brought it back less than 20 years ago. Still, the idea of a million-dollar sedan that would be even more luxurious than the Bentley Mulsanne or the Rolls-Royce Phantom is fascinating.
Bugatti is also reportedly considering the benefits of electrification, saying that just because it decided against using electric motors “doesn’t mean we abandon this topic forever.”
Thankfully, while the company is willing to explore a few different options for its next vehicle, it draws the line at building an SUV. When asked if one was a possibility for the future, Duerheimer simply responded with a “no.”
