Last week, Bugatti announced that it will launch a hardcore limited edition hypercar called Divo, and now a mysterious prototype was spotted testing at the Nurburgring.
Putting one and one together makes us believe that this Chiron-based prototype is indeed the Divo, but with no official confirmation, that’s just an educated guess.
Simply looking at the pictures shared by DCNCars on Instagram doesn’t reveal much, as the bumpers on both ends appear to be identical to the ones used on the Chiron and the only visible changes are the different headlamps and taillights.
If this is indeed the Bugatti Divo, then it should feature more visual updates when it premieres next month at Pebble Beach. The Molsheim-based company said that “its dynamic character will be underlined by a new, strong design language”, as the hypercar wants “to thrill people throughout the world”.
Alongside the updated styling, the new Bugatti will be lighter and more agile than the current Chiron. And, of course, the extreme hypercar will come with an equally extreme price tag: €5 million (excluding tax) in Europe, or $5.82 million at today’s exchange rates.
Bugatti will only make 40 units of the Divo, but they haven’t announced whether these are part of the 500-example production run of the Chiron, or if it will be considered a standalone model.
