New Bugatti Chiron Divo Could Cost $6 Million, Premiere At Pebble Beach

An all-new variant of the Bugatti Chiron could be unveiled to the public at August’s Pebble Beach Concourse d’Elegance.

In recent months, Bugatti has been showing the new model to a host of its most important clients. In May, one attendee of a private event in Los Angeles said the vehicle looks drastically different to the Chiron we’re familiar with and that it has a somewhat controversial design.

The Supercar Blog claims to have since been informed by someone who attended an unveiling in New York that the vehicle is called the Chiron Divo. It goes a step beyond the Chiron Sport and features a host of significant upgrades.

Bugatti is said to have designed an all-new, racing-derived transmission for the Chiron Divo. This new gearbox will play a part in boosting the hypercar’s acceleration, with the unnamed source claiming it will be significantly quicker than the regular car. If that’s the case, it’ll need to sprint to 62 mph (100 km/h) in under 2.5 seconds and reach 124 mph (200 km/h) in less than 6.5 seconds.

A primary focusing of Bugatti in developing the car has been to make it better suited to the track. As a result, downforce has allegedly been increased dramatically, so much so that the car’s top speed will sit at just 239 mph (385 km/h), well down on the electronically limited 261 mph (420 km/h) of the standard car. The Chiron Divo will also be the lightest model to date.

The French car manufacturer is thought to be limiting production to fewer than 100 units. However, it remains unclear if those examples will be in addition to the 500 Chiron models already confirmed, or if they’ll make up a part of the Chiron’s production run.

Either way, the Chiron Divo won’t be cheap, coming in at a claimed €5 million ($5.85 million). That makes the car twice as expensive as the €2.65 million ($3.1 million) Chiron Sport.

    That price is insane. Doubt it will be that high. Would much rather have an AMG Project One AND an Aston Martin Valkyrie than one of these.

  • So what’s the essence of Chiron Sport if Diva actually had upgrades to make it faster? Why don’t just make a full on variants?
