Bugatti Divo Is A Faster, Hardcore Special Edition Limited To 40 Units

After presenting the Chiron Sport earlier this year, Bugatti is now getting ready to launch a limited edition version of their hypercar, called Divo.

Named after the French racing driver Albert Divo, who won the Targa Florio race twice for Bugatti in the late 1920s, it will premiere at ‘The Quail – A Motorsports Gathering’, in California, on August 24.

Described as being “made for corners” by Bugatti President, Stephan Winkelmann, the Divo wants “to thrill people throughout the world” with its “nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way”.

It’s unknown what Bugatti did to the Chiron to turn it into the Divo, but words such as “lightweight and agility, higher downforce and greater g-forces” have also been used in the short press release.

That said, expect it to be lighter than the current Chiron and to feature some aerodynamic updates. Also, its “dynamic character will be underlined by a new, strong design language”, says Bugatti.

Production of the Bugatti Divo will be limited to only 40 examples, and each one costs a whopping €5 million (equal to $5.88 million), without tax and, of course, any optional extras. Comparing it to the Chiron Sport, which starts from €2.65 million ($3.12 million), it’s almost twice as expensive.

For the time being, the Molsheim-based car marque hasn’t released anything else about the limited model, but a previous report claims that Bugatti has come up with a motorsports-derived gearbox for it. This should help improve its acceleration that currently takes less than 2.5 seconds to 100km/h (62mph), and under 6.5sec before reaching 200km/h (124mph).
