Bugatti Galibier

FORTUNE -- News item: A four-door model will be joining the lineup of Bugatti, the maker of world's fastest production car. Volkswagen AG, Bugatti's corporate parent, has given the go-ahead to build the 16C Galibier sedan, which has a 1,000 horsepower engine, a top speed of approximately 220 miles per hour, and will cost about $1.4 million.

This is no April Fool's joke. The fever to add two more doors to some of the world's most iconic sports cars has apparently reached epidemic proportions. Bugatti, maker of the super-fast, super-expensive Veyron, has been teasing cognoscenti with the Galibier since its unveiling at a private showing during the Frankfurt auto show in September, 2009. The project was presumably put on hold while Europe and North America recovered from the financial crisis, but Bugatti has been leaking photos in the interim and now appears ready to go ahead. (For those not in the know, the Col du Galibier is a mountain pass in the southern region of the French Alps that is often the highest point of the Tour de France. Despite the origin of their founder, who was born in Milan, Bugattis have always been built in France).
