Pebble Beach’s Concours d’Elegance at Monterey Car Week has been delivering some real heaters over the weekend, the most impressive of which is this next inconceivable incarnation of the Bugatti hypercar.
The French automotive brand has confirmed the new weapon is coined the ‘Divo’ and will take its inspiration from numerous elements of its predecessor, the Chiron, but with a completely revamped carbon fiber bodywork. This bad boy is all about the downforce – 198 pounds more than the Chiron, in fact – thanks to a now hardened and reinforced chassis. Its top speed will be 380 km/h from the usual W16 powertrain and will bang out over 1500 horsepower. It’ll also clock in at 35 kilograms lighter than the current offering.
The Divo also claims to lap the automaker’s Nardo test track 8 seconds faster than the Chiron but you’ll be paying for the privilege with its staggering price tag of $8 million AUD. Not a single example of the 40 cars to be built will likely end up in Australia, or even the southern hemisphere for that matter, though that can’t be confirmed as the buyers are of course undisclosed.
All orders for the Bugatti Divo have already been placed and allocated. Do you rate the meaner, chiseled style or do you prefer the more curvaceous looks of the Chiron and Veyron?
