The new Bugatti Divo was unveiled at the quail motorshow which was the home for a lot of new unveils such as the McLaren senna GTR , the Lamborghini aventador SVJ and a whole lot of other cars.
The Bugatti Divo is the brainchild of Bugatti’s new CEO Stephen Winckelmann who joined the company early this year , he had years of experience in Automobilli Lamborghini. The new car is completely different to its predecessor but hasn’t lost its Bugatti mark , it is limited to only a 40 car production number and as you’d expect is sold out , the customers are long time Bugatti collectors who have owned most of their models . The car has a staggering $5.8 million price tag and is definitely worth the money. The divo is similar to the vision GT by rarety but closer to the Chiron in terms of design and interior specifications.
The Bugatti Divo is named after bugatti’s race car driver Albert Divo from the 20’s .
Bugatti is marketing the car as the most agile car ever made and we can completely recognise that from the radical design with a more aggresive front splitter , larger rear wing , improved side skirts and a load of intakes for cooling the engine.
All of this accounts for reduced weight , increased downforce and really making it a road car for the track.
The car is distinctly a Bugatti from the horse shoe grill , the lines , roof lines and the general shape recognizable from the Chiron bust has a completely new face , new eyes new looks etc.
The Divo is powered by the same 8 litre quad-turbocharged w16 which gives out a odd 1500 Bhp figure which is tremendous for its competitors and the likes of the rimac and Ferrari and Lamborghini. It has 1600 Nm of torque.
The Divo is limited to a top speed of 380 Kmph i.e. approximately 230 Mph.
The rear has a whole new design and features the same quad exhaust like the Chiron , the rear lights now , are similar to that of the Aston Martin Vulcan which of course is a direct competitor to this car in terms of power , radicalism and the overall numbers. It has the famous shark fin like the AMG Project ONE but unlike the car , it doesn’tt touch the rear wing and instead floats just inches away from it. The c-line on the doors is taken from the Chiron and looks amazingly aerodynamic.
The Bugatti Divo is a sight to behold and turns eyeballs on the roads and is arguably one of the best racecars for the road.
