$5.8 Million Bugatti Divo Confirmed As Limited-Edition Lightweight Hypercar

Bugatti Divo

The Bugatti Divo will be all about handling prowess.

A shot showing embroidered branding for the vehicle reveals none of the performance-boosting revisions over the Chiron, but the hashtag "Built for corners" suggests a set-up more suited to track driving than outright speed.

Bugatti is working on a new model, 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.

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. "New, strong design language" suggests its look will be notably distinct from that of the regular Chiron.

The debut will take place at this year's The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering event, which is part of the Monterey Car Week festivities in California.

Quotable: "Happiness is not around the corner". Prepare yourselves for the upcoming Bugatti Divo: a limited edition hypercar with a very specific focus. It is the corner. From 1931 to the 1932 season, Divo drove for Ettore Bugatti in the AIACR European Championship, racking up 12 and 17 points, respectively.

Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann added: 'With this project, the Bugatti team has an opportunity to interpret the brand DNA in terms of agile, nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way'.
