Under the hood, the Galibier is expected to carry the 8.0-litre W16 engine with two-stage supercharger, including an ethanol mode. In terms of interior, the Galibier is very impressive with top-notch quality and finish. The Swiss clock maestro, Parmigiani have fashioned a unique detachable Reverso Tourbillon clock for the Galibier 16C that can be worn as a wristwatch with its unique leather belt.

It was speculate that the French masterpiece will hit the market by 2013, but now there is a question if the car will ever make it to production.

There is also a possibility of the four-door, 431 kmph super sedan to materialize as a cut-price, cut-power version, not anytime before 2015. Meanwhile, check out the teaser video of this marvelous piece of engineering.
