RE: Bugatti confirms Chiron 'Divo' - Page 1 - General Gassing

Bugatti has confirmed that a track-focused auto based on its Chiron hypercar, named Divo, is on the way. The body could be significantly different, however, in keeping with Bugatti's promise that the vehicle has been honed to go around corners at physics-defying speed. However, Bugatti makes reference to reviving the coachbuilding tradition of its early years, so expect a unique appearance from the outside.

Although it is unknown what Bugatti did to the Chiron to turn it into the Divo, but words such as "lightweight and agility, higher downforce and greater g-forces" have also been used in the short press release. The result will be outstanding handling properties and the dynamic character of the auto will be underlined by a new, strong design language.

The Divo is due to be unveiled at "The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering" in Monterey, California on 24 August.

It also appeared numerous times when they gave updates on the cave rescue , which was carried out over three nerve-wracking days. Volunteers from as far away as Australia and the United States helped with the effort to rescue the boys.

The name Divo is also derived from Bugatti's past, named in honour of French racing driver Albert Divo, a two-time victor of the Targa Florio in the 1920s. "The Divo is made for corners", said Bugatti chief Stephan Winkelmann, who previously headed Lamborghini (and briefly Audi Sport) under the same Volkswagen Group umbrella.

Quotable: "Happiness is not around the corner".

"With the Divo, we want to thrill people throughout the world", the Bugatti President continues. Bugatti will charge £4.42 million for each of the 40 Divos that will be made - a heavy premium over the other two models.
