Gallery: Bugatti's new $5.8 million super sports car Divo
The Bugatti Divo, named after Albert Divo, the French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio race on a mountainous circuit in Sicily for Bugatti twice in the late 1920s. The first deliveries to customers are planned for 2020.
The French luxury brand has developed a super sports car tuned for agility, nimbleness and optimum handling performance on winding roads. It is powered by Bugatti’s iconic eight-litre W16 engine with a power output of 1,500 PS. The Divo is being made in a limited series of only 40 vehicles. The Divo is to be produced from 2019 onwards together with the Bugatti Chiron at the brand’s headquarters in Molsheim, Alsace. As a result, the Divo is 35 kilograms lighter and has 90 kilograms more downforce than the standard Chiron2. The lateral acceleration of the Divo has been boosted to 1.6g. Its maximum speed is limited to 380 km/h. The progressive new design language underlines the inner values of the new super sports model the same time as forging a link with Bugatti’s rich coachbuilding heritage of bodies built to its own design and installed on existing chassis.
