Bugatti has taken the wraps off its latest baby, the Bugatti Divo. With 1,479 horsepower and a $5.78 million price tag, you’ll forget all about the Chiron.
Compared to the Chiron, the Bugatti Divo is made for fun with its increased downforce, modified chassis and lighter weight. As a result, the Divo is 77 pounds lighter and has 198 pounds more downforce than the Chiron. The lateral acceleration of the Divo has been boosted to 1.6 g, although its maximum speed has been reduced to 236 mph compared to the Chiron’s 261 mph top speed. Bugatti also says that the Divo has an 8 seconds faster lap time on the Nardò handling circuit than the Chiron.
“When I took up my position at Bugatti at the beginning of the year, I soon learnt that our customers and fans were waiting for a special vehicle which would tell a further story for the brand in addition to the Chiron,” said Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. “The Bugatti team was also very eager to implement a project like this.”
Now for the bad news, Bugatti only plans to build 40 Chiron models and even with that insane price tag, all 40 units are already sold out.
