Bugatti builds truly outrageous automobiles that stretch our perceptions of performance and personal wealth. The Veyron currently serves as the automaker's only ambassador into the world of high-speed and exotic engineering. Bugatti executives are looking to add a second steed to the stable, and we believe the Galibier sedan would make a good fit. It seems, however, that Bugatti CEO Wolfgang Durheimer doesn't think it's ready. Why not? It's not wild enough.

The 800-horsepower four-door concept car needs more power, rear space and an extra dose of luxurious comfort. Durheimer believes the Galibier should be the car that serves as an "argument stopper," meaning there is no further discussion with regards to its position as best car on the planet.

Bugatti executives will make a decision on the fate of the Galibier later this year. Though we may never be able to afford one, we hope that Durheimer gives it the green light. There's not enough cars in the world that run on pure insanity, and the Galibier would certainly help liven up that segment.

      I agree, 8 exhaust tips is far too mild.

        I think the whole @$$ end should be exhaust tips all the way across.

      Wasn't Durheimer the guy who when asked at a press conference who was the target market for the Veyron replied 'we don't want rappers'?? Then they come with this particularly pimp-i-fied sedan for billionaires who want to pretend to be ballers? This isn't outrageous enough? What if each car came with 6 slutty dancers who would jump out and 'freak' everytime you parked? Or just keep this car and name it the Better Than You and get it overwith.

      As much as I like the current design, the rear 3/4 view reminds me of an early '50s Nash Airflyte: http://shw.autopages.fotopages.com/1031311/Nash-Airflyte-1951.html

      even if they boost it's power and make it comfier, i wouldn't buy it. it looks just like the veyron, which does also does not look appealing. i would rather stick to the Phantom or the Rapide. Bugatti needs to stick to making more super grand sport SS type R roadster editions of the Veyron. (jk of course)

      I agree with Wolfgang, it doesn't quite have the presence just yet. At the end of the day, the ultimate "argument stopper" is still a Rolls Royce Phantom....and it won't be easy to topple.

        I see what you mean. To me it is a shockingly good looking car. Phantom is not bad either, just this would bring a new shape to ultra-lux.

        Are you kidding? This vs. a Phantom. Buggatti will win everytime! I see Phantoms so often now they have lost all meaning. Almost all meaning.

          Pete, this one just seems to me a gussied up Panamera. It doesn't have that royal presence and stance of a proper Rolls.....the Phantom might not be the youngest car on the block, but it garners instant respect. The Bugatti is a little too jelly-beanish hatchback looking in this regard. We apparently also live in different locations.....Phantoms are pretty rare around here. But I wouldn't drive my Rolls on Brooklyn roads either....

      They may build some of the most powerful and expensive autos in the world, but hands down, they build the fugliest expensive autos in the world. No other manufacturer even comes close to ugly when compared to Bugatti.

        I agree Michael. They are freakin ugly vehicles. Bugatti needs a new design team pronto.

      It's not outrageous enough? It's not good looking enough either. Needs a total redesign.

      Oh good grief. What do they want? A burgundy loose cushion interior, like a late '70s Olds Ninety-Eight? Build the damn thing already.
