Bugatti sedan did not get into mass production due to designFebruary 22, 2020
The production of the chic 4-seater Bugatti Galibier did not begin due to the fact that the company authorities considered it unattractive.
The presentation of the prototype Bugatti 16C Galibier took place at a special event back in 2009 as a possible prototype of the upcoming serial sedan of the brand. The official debut of the concept took place at the Geneva auto show in 2010, but its further fate remained foggy.
Presumably, the sedan was supposed to enter the “series”, but it remained only a spectacular conceptual model. Chief designer Achim Anscheidt in an interview with Hagerty said that they put an end to the model for the reason that the appearance of Galibier did not like the bosses of the VW Group.
As he noted, the concept of the Bugatti production sedan was very different from the prototype: the car became 150 cm longer and 15 cm wider. Designers tried to make it similar to the iconic Type 57 Atlantic, but in the end they only went further and further from the idea of an elegant sports sedan. .
The top managers of the corporation did not manage to reach consensus on the very sporty design of the sedan, and they preferred to abandon it altogether.
