But with companies like Hennessey, McLaren, Mercedes-AMG, Ferrari, Porsche, Aston Martin, W Motors, SCG, Devel Pininfarinaand others out there trying to break the 300 mph barrier, Bugatti knows they can’t rest on their extremely fast laurels.
Which is why, unbelievably, Bugatti says their new hypercar, the Divo, will be even more racy than the Chiron, or the more recent Chiron Sport (pictured below).
According to Bugatti, the Divo, named after Albert Divo, the French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio mountain race twice for Bugatti, will be light and nimble and will boast enormous downforce and g-forces.
“Happiness is not around the corner. It is the corner. The Divo is made for corners,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
“With the Divo, we want to thrill people throughout the world,” the Bugatti President continues. “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.”
The Divo is being made in a limited series of only 40 vehicles and the net price is €5 million (around $5.8 million).
Bugatti will unveil the the Divo as a world premiere on 24 August at The Quail – A Motorsports Gathering in California.
Until then, let’s just sit back and imagine driving one of the already amazing Bugatti’s currently on the road.
