The Bugatti Veyron requires no introduction; known for having 1,001 horsepower, known as the world’s fastest production car at 268 MPH, a title that the McLaren F1 held from 1998 to 2005, known for 0 to 60 MPH acceleration in 2.6 seconds, and known for the most expensive price of $1.7 million USD. The Bugatti Veyron is the most recognized supercar in the world, amongst the likes of the Ferrari Enzo, Pagani Zonda, Lamborghini Murcielago, Ford GT40, and the McLaren F1. But does top speed and over 4-digit horsepower equate into a great supercar?

People fail to realize that cars are to men as clothes are to women. It’s always about how you look, how you feel, how exclusive your style is that matters. It doesn’t matter if it’s a $10,000 Gucci purse or the original Bugatti Type 57 that wets your appetite because at the end of the day its about the emotions that are evoked within, the shear joy and pleasure of enjoying the marvel of design, the ingenuity of product engineering and the selfish knowledge that it’s yours. So what better way to spend your kidney sale than to buy something to do just that? Prior to September of 2011, I would have recommended the purchase of a Bugatti Veyron EB 16.4 but all 300 production versions have already been sold. You would be all out of luck, except for the fact that a more expensive, powerful and exotic version exists: the Bugatti Veyron Super Sport.

So let’s say that you make the fastest production car in the world, it costs more than Tom Cruise’s face, and it defies decades of automotive engineering. Now what would you do? Probably, cash out your stock, pack your bags and head to your vacation home at the beach to relax. Right? No way! That’s not what Bugatti’s CEO Wolfgang Durheimer did after creating one of the most coveted and respected cars in the world. Instead, Durheimer has been pushing Bugatti to create the world’s fastest and luxurious sedan. Sounds easy, right?

Bugatti Successor? The Galibier

Bugatti Galibier
What good is an automaker without an automobile? Bugatti is getting darn close to finding out, now that its solitary product – the all-conquering Veyron – is nearing the end of its production cycle. So what will the Alsatian marque do next? Rumors have been circulating of a production four-door luxury super-sedan ever since Bugatti pulled the suede-lined tarp off the Galibier concept nearly two years ago. But company execs have remained pretty tight-lipped about it since then, leaving us all to speculate. Now, however, the German car-mag of record Auto Motor und Sport claims to have Bugatti/Bentley chief Wolfgang Dürheimer on record confirming the Galibier's production for sometime late next year. The super-sedan is expected to use a version of the Veyron's W16 engine, though it could be detuned to "only" 800 horsepower for more civilized motoring. Don't expect the price to drop from the Veyron's perch, however, with the tag still expected to top the million-euro mark. Even at those prices, however, Dürheimer reportedly expects to sell 1,000 to 1,500 examples of the Galibier (or whatever it might be called) – significantly more than the 300 Veyrons the company has built."
