Bugatti might make a sedan, but definitely won't do an SUV

Hot off the reveal of the 1,500-horsepower Chiron, one would think Bugatti president Wolfgang Dürheimer would be sleeping well. Apparently, he has something else on his mind.

"I can't get the idea for a four-door limousine out of my head," the Bugatti chief told Bloomberg at the Geneva Motor Show. "It's one of the options we might look into again as a possible next project."

"Limousine" translates to sedan in German, the native country of Dürheimer, and Bugatti has floated the idea of a four door before. The 16C Galibier was shown in 2009, and rumors of its production approval (or delay) percolated for years. If Bugatti were to proceed with a sedan, it would likely draw on the resources of parent Volkswagen Group, perhaps sourcing the underpinnings and other hardware.

Meanwhile, the chances of Bugatti doing a sport utility vehicle are zero, Bloomberg reported. When asked, Dürheimer responded with a precise "no." He did suggest Bugatti might use electrification for future cars, though he didn't elaborate.

For now, Bugatti is basking in the attention generated by the Chiron, the much-anticipated successor to the Veyron. The Chiron bowed this week at the Geneva Motor Show and will go on sale this fall with a base price of $2.6 million.
