Bugatti unveiled its stunning Divo super sports car Friday in Monterey, California, showcasing a vehicle that the French luxury brand is listing for $5.8 million.
Named after French racing driver and two-time Targa Florio winner, Albert Divo, who won multiple races in the Type 35 Bugatti, the Divo super sports car looks to take Bugatti into the future.
“To date, a modern Bugatti has represented a perfect balance between high-performance, straight-line dynamics and luxurious comfort,” Bugatti President Stephan Winkelmann said in a statement.
Compared to the Bugatti Chiron, hyper grand tourer, the Divo is much more focused on driving dynamics. The hypercar’s is 77 pounds lighter while its aerodynamics generate an additional 198 pounds of downforce.
“The Divo has significantly higher performance in terms of lateral acceleration, agility, and cornering. The Divo is made for corners,” Winkelmann added.
The car carries with it key elements of other classic Bugatti-brand cars including the horseshoe-shaped front grille, the famed Bugatti signature line on the vehicle’s side, and the familiar fin that showcases the longitudinal axis of the car when seen from above.
“The Divo is a further example of our design philosophy ‘Form follows Performance’. In this case, the engineers and designers aimed to create a vehicle focusing on cornering speeds and lateral dynamics,” said Achim Anscheidt, Director of Design of Bugatti Automobiles, in a statement.
Parts of the car are colored “Titanium Liquid Silver,” while other parts are painted in “Divo Racing Blue” two striking hues that were developed specifically for the Divo.
Unfortunately, if you haven’t already ordered a Divo, you’re already too late. After being shown to a handful of chosen Bugatti customers, the Divo’s limited production run of 40 vehicles has sold out.
