Automotive Bliss.




The Bugatti 16C Galiber, described as being "the most exclusive, elegant and powerful four-door automobile in the world." The Galibier - named after a Type 57 four door and Alpine mountain road - is powered by a twin-supercharged version of the 987bhp, 8.0-litre W16 engine that propels the Veyron to its 252mph top speed. 

Both it's chassis and body are made of carbon fibre, with the exception of the wings and doors which are polished aluminium. The car has a special nine-layer paint job which subtly highlights the weave of the carbon fibre when light shines on it. Plus, it can run on bio-ethanol which will keep the eco-mentalists happy.

A discreet 'spine' line bisects the full 5m-plus length of the car, including the windscreen, concluding with a vivid flourish just above the rear diffuser and eight exhaust pipes. The bonnet, meanwhile, opens in two separate panels, mimicking a butterfly's wings.

Inside, the vast oval dashboard is dominated by just two instruments, a power meter and a speedometer. 'As with the exterior, the interior emphasises an elegant simplicity,' says Anscheidt, design boss of bugatti.

It's expected to go on sale in 2013, with prices pegged just below the veyron's £900,000 price tag. In my opinion, it's the creme-de-la-creme of automotive executive luxury and would definitely be on my wish-list if I was a millionaire. Just the thing for celebrating the end of the recession...
