Bugatti Divo Shows Radically-Different Silhouette

Bugatti has dropped a new teaser of the upcoming Divo hypercar and it exemplifies just how different the car will look from an ordinary Chiron.

This particular image offers a look at the hypercar from the side, covered only be a thin layer of cloth that offers us a near-unimpeded view of the silhouette.

As had long been expected, it seems apparent that the Bugatti Divo will take very obvious design inspiration from the Vision Gran Turismo Concept, shown to the world before even the road-going Chiron was unveiled.

Key features visible include a massive fixed rear wing, aggressive wheel arches, prominent fins on the side skirts and a bold body line running from the front wheel arch through to the B-pillar. It also appears as if a shark fin, just like the one featured on the Vision Gran Turismo, stretches from the roof to the rear wing.

Specifications for the Divo remain unclear but we know it will be far more focused on handling and downforce than the run-of-the-mill Chiron. Additionally, Bugatti has worked hard to ensure the vehicle is lighter than other models to come before it, all in an attempt to make it that much more nimble.

According to a report six weeks ago, the French manufacturer will pair the 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine with a bespoke motorsports-derived gearbox to improve acceleration. Consequently, the Divo should hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in well under 2.5 seconds and 200 km/h (124 mph) in roughly 6.5 seconds.

Production will be limited to just 40 units, each priced at €5 million ($5.88 million). The car will premiere on August 24 at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance.

    hmmm, interesting. I forgot about that

    Wow, silhouette looks gorgeous! Finally got rid of that hideous giant “C” on the side profile.

    • Yeah, the Atlantic style side profile is sort of weird to me.

    Bugatti is not a “french” manufacturer for very very long time. French are not capable of producing anything remotely so technologically advanced.

      What a hater you are!

      • ace_9

        Thanks. I know what they are capable of. And they are one of the most arrogant, obnoxious and lazy people in the world and they love taking credit for someone else’s work. So, I don’t like when they are even remotely credited for such an amazing car. Volkswagen allows them to watch and sometimes they let some french manager to speak about it. That’s how it really is. I know I’m monstrously generalizing things, but my working and other experience with french people changed me this way. I would for example never buy a french car now. In fact I would knowingly never buy anything french…

          Are you American?

            No, I’m from a small middle european country.

            Well, I will not add hate to hate because it has never helped easing things. You had clearly a very bad experience withh some people and I even feel bad for you as I know French people are capable of better than that — and again, some are good, some are not, but that’s true everywhere, even where you live, I guess. Hopefully one day the right person will make you reconsider things. For now, let’s keep this on topic and let’s hope for a nice car! Peace.

  • I can’t wait to see it, it looks so much different than Chiron, I like this sorts of project.

    “Radically-Different” “well under”, such exaggerations make this reading annoying. But i cant wait to see the car.
