It's all anyone seemed to talk about at time time, but years later, does anyone really care how long it took for Bugatti to develop the Veyron and get it out on the market? Not really. But it looks like the elite automaker is about to embark down the same path with its next model.
According to reports, the return to the drawing board to redesign parts of the Galibier concept car into the production Royale that's expected to follow will take a few years. As a result, we aren't to expect to see the four-door super-sedan – whatever it will be called in the end – in production form until 2015 at the earliest.
The question is, with production of the standard Veyron now completed and only variants like the Grand Sport and Super Sport still finishing out their production runs, what will Bugatti do in the meantime?
