    4 Door Veyron - The 16C Galibier concept

    16 cylinders, 4 seats and $1.4 million dollars.

    What do you think?

    If I had the money to buy that , which I don't, I would hope I'd have the sense to spend it on something more relevant to my values.

    Nowadays, people who can afford $1.4 million cars, normally don't have very good taste.

    The EB110 was not hideous. Not a good car, but certainly not hideous.


    Re: 4 Door Veyron - The 16C Galibier concept

    technological masterpiece - no doubt  

    so all people that spend over 1.4 Mio have no taste ? This is like a working class person saying all Porsche-drivers have a potenz issue....

    I believe people just want exclusivety and are willing to pay for it  - hence I don't see a problem with it. Just came from London and around Harrods you really see interesting cars - never saw a Maybach coupe.....

    Funny... me neither. Curious if this was commissioned at the factory.


    Re: 4 Door Veyron - The 16C Galibier concept

    I don't think we should condemn the car just because this photo happens to have a tasteless, shiny chrome colour scheme. I would have thought one could order it in more sober and elegant colour schemes too.

    IMO this car is probably aimed at the Russian, Arab and Chinese markets where, let's just say, people have a different approach to how overtly they flaunt their (often newly acquired) wealth.

    It isn't my taste at all but then Bugatti isn't chasing after me

    It's done by a German company called Xenatech. Only 100 cars will be produced. There's at least 30 of them here in UAE. Although it's not my cup of tea but i have to admit that the car looks as if it came frpm the Mercedes-Benz factory.

    still surprised that they can leave all MM badges on - usually for heavily modified cars they loose the original sticker like when you see a Gemballa or Techart Porsche.... 


    Re: 4 Door Veyron - The 16C Galibier concept

    It is quite a (financial) achievement to re-develop a given car into a properly functioning two-door coupe. As far as I remember, Mercedes considered launching a coupe version themselves and, given Xenatech´s main expertise, could imagine that they were hired to develop the original car for the manufacturer. There are other engineering companies such as Bertrand that have performed the technical development for Mercedes in the past and being based on the surface data from the manufacturer. Xenatech´s model looks very professional from a design standpoint and the changes in side profile, front and rear end and interior are highly professional and not done by a single man in a shed at night.

    Just an assumption of course, don´t want to start any rumours...

    You are right. The guys at Maybach were heavily involved. In return Xenatech must  produce at least 75 cars. I guess MB wanted to get rid of some major parts.

     For $1.4 you could get a Mulsanne with the optional 458 Italia, 911 GT2, and Cayenne Turbo. I'd rather do that.
