French diva – the all new Bugatti Divo
Hypercar manufacturer extraordinaire Bugatti seems to have taken the foot off the accelerator during a top speed run and built this - the Divo. Touted as a “faster but slower” Bugatti, the Divo is aimed at the type of motoring enthusiast who’d rather be going fast around corners rather than fast in a straight line only.
The Chiron, which was praised for its increased agility over the Veyron, seems to have inspired a slightly smaller, lighter, less top-speed focused handling machine. It still has gobs of power - 1,479 HP from the quad turbo 8.0 litre W16 that powers the Chiron. The big difference comes in the aero - while the Chrion was built for top speed and maximum slipperiness, the Divo’s corner friendly aero produces 1,005 lbs of downforce in total. Top speed now comes down to “only” 236 MPH.
Bugatti will only build 5 units of the Divo. Priced at a frankly ridiculous $5 million each, the Divo sold out even before it was revealed to the public. Because Bugatti.
