bugatti goes one further than its chiron model, having unveiled the all-new divo, a $5.8 million supercar produced in an already sold-out, limited edition run of 40. the french luxury brand has developed a super sports car tuned for agility, nimbleness and optimum handling performance on winding roads and is powered by bugatti’s iconic eight-litre W16 engine with a power output of 1,500 PS.

not to be confused with the chiron, the divo is slower than its predecessor reaching 236 mph (380 km/h). still, according to bugatti, the divo can lap italy’s nardò handling circuit eight seconds faster. the aerodynamics of the model have been intensively fine-tuned, with lightweight tires and a carbon fiber cover,  and the suspension and chassis settings have also been modified. as a result, it is 35 kilograms (77 lbs) lighter and has 90 kilograms (198 lbs) more downforce than the standard chiron.

with this latest model, bugatti revives its coachbuilding tradition. in its first few decades, the french luxury brand had considerable success with bodies built to its own design and installed on existing chassis. the supercar is named after albert divo, a french racing driver who was a two-time winner of the famous targa florio race on the mountainous roads of sicily with bugatti in the late 1920s.

to date, a modern bugatti has represented a perfect balance between high performance, straight-line dynamics and luxurious comfort. within our possibilities, we have shifted the balance in the case of the divo further towards lateral acceleration, agility and cornering,’ says stephan winkelmann, president of the brand.the divo is made for bends.‘ the super sports car was revealed at quail: a motorsports gathering, in monterey, california, an annual event attracting motor connoisseurs and enthusiasts from around the world.

  • What is the point of having something that looks like a cartoon character, if it is not faster?!
