Bugatti Divo is a hyperlink made for corners, not too deadly



It's hard to imagine a situation where someone would look at a Bugatti Chiron and say it needed more performance, but apparently, that's exactly what somebody did, because Bugatti went and built Divo. [19659002] What's Divo, apart from a "rolled 1500 horsepower, $ 5.78 million hypercar that you can not even buy because it's already sold out? Well, while Chiron was thought of as the world's largest touring vehicle, Divo is supposed to devour rotating roads with willing descent. But what did Bugatti do to make it happen?

Bugatti kicks all Chiron's elegance to the edge and replaces it with hardcore aerodynamics.

Initially, it changed the car's aerodynamics package to increase the 1

98 pound downgrade while reducing the total vehicle weight by 77 pounds. This, combined with innovative new tuning for its electronic damper makes it possible to corner with lateral acceleration of 1.6g. These aero changes have a negative effect on Divo's top speed though, now limited to only 236 miles per hour, down from Chiron's electronic limit max. 261 mph.

"When I picked up my position in Bugatti at the beginning of the year, I soon learned that our customers and fans were waiting for a special vehicle that would tell a further story for the brand in addition to Chiron," said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti Automobiles SAS "The Bugatti team was also very keen to implement a project like this."

Bugatti claims that Divo is full 8 seconds faster than Chiron around the Nardo handling circuit – no boring, given the caliber of car we're talking about here. Although Bugatti is not specific about which Chiron it took there, the standard car or the ridiculous was called Chiron Sport .

Bugatti Divo's interior is nothing unless it's a driver-focused.

"Today, a modern Bugatti has represented a perfect balance between high performance, straight line dynamics and luxurious comfort. Within the possibilities, we have shifted the balance of Divo further towards lateral acceleration, agility and turn," added Winkelmann. "Divo is made for corners."

The interior of Divo is a clear departure from Chiron's more staid luxury. Where Chiron is all soft leather and beautifully machined metal, Divo is colorful Alcantara on the driver's side and gray-black Alcantara on the passenger side, leaving little doubt as to who this car is meant for.

The crazy people in Molsheim behind Divo have decided to build only 40 examples of the car, all of which apparently are sold out. Like all modern Bugattis, Divo carries the name of a respected racing driver. This time it's for Albert Divo, two-winner's winner of the cruel Targa Florio race in Italy in a Bugatti Type 35.

With such limited numbers being built, we would not expect to see Divo on the streets anytime soon. We will do our best to get the fresh, baritone-tuned editor to us behind the wheel when it actually goes into production.
