TopGear visited the Bugatti HQ and found a black Bugatti 16C Galibier which looks just awesome. Production is said to be more likely now.
Apparently, the reaction has been overwhelmingly good, but a decision on whether to put the car into production is still pending. Bugatti’s top brass are getting increasingly less good at hiding their desire to get on with it. “It’s more than 50/50,” Schauerte admits after much cajoling, and possibly fearing for his life (the decision rests with the VW board, remember, and ultimately with the group’s saturnine kingpin, the legendary Dr Piech).
