The Divo, a more exotic and exclusive appearance of the Bugatti Chiron. Its name honors French racing driver Albert Divo, who twice won the prestigious Targa Florio endurance race while driving a Bugatti in the 1920s. The French manufacturer has placed a limit on production: only 40 Divos will be produced, all of which have already been sold to Chiron owners. Fortunately, at 217mph.com, they are some unique pieces for sale
Bugatti has designed the Divo as a super sports car optimized for agility, nimbleness, and optimal handling performance on winding roads. It is powered by Bugatti’s legendary W16 eight-liter engine, which generates 1,500 horsepower. The suspension and chassis settings have been modified, and the aerodynamics of the model have been fine-tuned extensively. The Divo is consequently 35 kilograms (77 pounds) lighter and has 90 kilograms (198 pounds) more downforce than the standard Chiron. The Divo’s lateral acceleration has been increased to 1.6 g. Its top speed is restricted to 380 km/h (236 mph). The Divo is eight seconds faster around the Nard handling circuit in southern Italy than the Chiron. The series will consist of only forty vehicles. The strictly limited small series with a net unit price of €5 million was immediately sold out upon the commencement of presentations to select customers, and is already selling for the double amount.
Up until now, a modern Bugatti has represented the ideal equilibrium between high performance, straight-line dynamics, and luxurious comfort. Bugatti has shifted the Divo’s emphasis towards lateral acceleration, maneuverability, and cornering. The Divo is designed for curves.
The supercar is named after Albert Divo, a French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio race twice with Bugatti in the 1920s on the mountainous roads of Sicily.
