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.

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.
