It can churn out between 588kW (800hp) and 735kW (1,000hp), all of which is channeled to all four wheels using the AWD system. Standard fuel is petrol but ethanol can be used as an alternative. To stop it running away from the driver is a set of powerful carbon ceramic brakes.
Bugatti has revived a name from its storied past on a new four-door concept, the Bugatti 16C Galibier, which the company says is intended to be "the most exclusive, elegant and powerful four-door automobile in the world."
While Bugatti chief Franz-Josef Paefgen maintains the company is considering several design proposals, he told Britain's Autocar: "This is what the Bugatti team wants to do.... Now we have to convince customers and the [Volkswagen] group to make it."
The current plan is to begin limited production in 2013, after the current Veyron two-door is phased out, with prices starting at about the same $1.5 million mark.
The 16C Galibier was unveiled over the weekend at a private reception here, at the ancestral home of Bugatti and current site of the VW Group's most exclusive marque.
