Bugatti has used the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance event to unveil its new hypercar. Let's meet the Bugatti Divo.
French luxury carmaker Bugatti has revealed the Divo, a new hypercar based on the Chiron. From looks alone, its sensational, but things become even more unreal when you look at the numbers. The Divo is powered by the iconic 8.0-litre W12 motor with 1 120 kW. Bugatti claims the Divo 35 lighter and boasts 90 kg more downforce in comparison to the standard Chiron. It boasts a top speed of 380 kph and can lap the Nardo handling circuit 8 seconds faster than the Chiron. Essentially, this is a faster, lighter and more agile Chiron.
"When I took up my position at Bugatti at the beginning of the year, I soon learnt that our customers and fans were waiting for a special vehicle which would tell a further story for the brand in addition to the Chiron," said Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. Named after Albert Divo, a French racing driver in the 1920s, the Bugatti Divo has received substantial aerodynamic revisions, such as a new height-adjustable rear spoiler which can work as an air brake. This rear spoiler can provide 456 kg of downforce. There are also new chassis and suspension settings, and the car was put on a diet to shave unwanted kilograms.
Bugatti will be building just 40 Divos and all have been sold out, at a price of €5 million (over R80 million).
