Bugatti is building a hypercar for those that think the Chiron and Chiron Sport just aren’t fast enough. Called the Divo, the new project will feature a renewed focus on agility and cost in the region of $5million. And the name? It’s taken from Albert Divo, a French racing driver who won the Targa Florio for Bugatti twice in the 1920s.
Only 40 of the Divo will be made, and the car will will be shown at Pebble Beach’s Quail event on 24 August.
What’s all this?
Unlike the Chiron, the new Bugatti Divo isn’t about going in a straight line as fast as possible. Instead, the new car has been designed around maximising downforce, mechanical grip and lightness – all things that should make it quicker around corners.
‘With the Divo, we want to thrill people throughout the world,’ said the Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann. ‘With this project, the Bugatti team has an opportunity to interpret the brand DNA in terms of agile, nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way.’
