- Will be the best-cornering Bugatti ever.
- Based on the Chiron, the Divo is expected to be a hardcore hypercar.
- The Divo will have a limited production run of just 40 units.
Bugatti will reveal its newest hypercar built by their new coachbuilding division. Christened as the Divo, the Chiron-based supercoupe has been teased under a veil ahead of the official reveal at The Quail Motorsport Gathering next week.
Unlike the Chiron, the Divo won’t be going for outright speed, but is “built for corners”, reveals the French carmaker. It will make use of the same behemoth 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 but will have a reworked body and suspension to corner better. Under the veil, the Divo fails to hide the massive rear wing and centre diffuser which is fit for a race car. The wheel arches are prominently flared while the windowline is sleek, contrary to the Chiron. The teaser image also previews futuristic LED tail lights along with front splitter canard.
The name of the new hypercar is a tribute to French racecar driver Albert Divo who won the Targa Florio race for Bugatti in 1928 and 1929. The Divo will be a road car instead of just a track focused machine like the Ferrari FXX. It will have a limited production run of just 40 units and we think all of them must have been sold out already for five million euros (approx. Rs 40 crores) a piece.
The world will get a glimpse of the new Divo next week on 24 August.
