Finally a Bugatti that’s track-capable!

The Bugatti Divo is a track-focused version of the Chiron. It’s also the supercar through which Bugatti revived its coachbuilding tradition after seven decades. Although based on the Chiron, the Divo looks significantly different, boasting what appears to be a new design language.

The Divo isn’t Bugatti’s first attempt to turn the Chiron into a better car at the track. The Chiron Sport was the first to bring enhanced dynamics, but the Divo takes everything to a new level with significantly higher performance in terms of lateral acceleration, agility, and cornering. As Bugatti puts it, the Divo "is made for corners."

Just like the Chiron, the new supercar is named after a famous Bugatti racing driver. This time around, it’s Albert Divo - a two-time winner of the Targa Florio race on the mountainous roads of Sicily in the late 1920s. Unlike the Chiron, which is limited to 500 units, the Divo will be built in only 40 examples. Let’s see what makes it special.

Love It or Leave It - The 2019 Bugatti Divo

Love It or Leave It - The 2019 Bugatti Divo

When Bugatti launched the Veyron back in 2005, it was difficult to imagine a more ridiculous supercar. But the Veyron became much more ridiculous over the years and its successor, the Chiron, added more to that status. But the Chiron lacks a very important feat; it has yet to set a new world speed record for production cars. Whether this will change or not remains a mystery, but Bugatti just moved into a rather surprising direction with the supercar. The French firm redesigned the shell, added more downforce, and renamed it the Divo.

Named after a racing driver from the past, the Divo is essentially a more track-focused version of the Chiron. This is a big thing actually, as both the Veyron and the Chiron are far from agile on the race course. But the Divo retains the luxurious status of the Chiron and, more importantly, it revives Bugatti’s coachbuilding program. How do we like it? Let’s find out below.

25 Incredible Facts About The Stunning Bugatti Divo

Learn How It Differs From The Chiron

Revealed at “The Quail” as part of Monterey Car Week, the new Bugatti Divo represents the next step into the extreme for the company that produces the fastest car on the planet - the Chiron. The new car takes a slightly different approach to life compared to the Chiron. Apart from being extremely fast and ridiculously powerful, the Divo moves a bit more to the dynamism and cornering abilities, so the top speed is its second priority. While it is based on the Chiron, the Divo feels like a new car, and this made me list a number of facts and differences between the Divo and the Chiron.

Now, I did say that the top speed feels like it’s only the second priority for the Divo. Well, that second priority is at 236 mph.

How Does the Bugatti Divo Compare to the Chiron?

Oh; they are definitely related

Let’s not beat around the bush – the Divo does, kind of, look like a Chiron at a glance. But then you look at it, and it becomes clear that there’s a lot of tweaks and changes that make the Divo what it is – and agiler, corner-eating beast from which there is no escape. But how does it really compare to the Chiron? Well let’s take a quick look and see for ourselves:

Aerodynamics like whoa

Buggati has finally revealed the Divo and, as it turns out, it’s basically the Chiron with an attitude problem and an insatiable love for throwing temper tantrums around corners. Seriously – Bugatti took the Chiron, gave it a meaner face, muscular front hood, corner-mounted headlights, and more aggressive side skirts. However, to make room for those side skirts, Bugatti engineers had to reword the side-mounted intakes, which are now smaller than before but have more definition than ever. To compensate for the smaller intakes, the roof has been formed to create a NACA air duct to help keep things cool under the engine’s hood. It’s not all about looks, though is it?

Is Bugatti finally making a track-ready supercar?

Back in July 2018, Bugatti announced it’s about to launch a "strictly limited model" called the Divo and released a few teaser shots. Naturally, we thought that it would be a special-edition version of the Chiron, but the latest teaser confirms that it’s more than that.

Highly awaited hypercar is close to making its debut

The Bugatti Divo is drawing closer to its highly anticipated debut at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance this coming August. Precious details have been revealed about the hypercar, but it is expected to be a more evocative version of the Chiron, one that will be coach-built and more driver-focused. In the absence of any meaningful information, Bugatti has released a teaser video of the Divo, specifically the raunchy taillights that are completely different from what the Chiron has. Could this be a sign of what we can expect from the Divo? It certainly appears like it.

Hello There! Are You The Bugatti Divo?

Heavily wrapped Bugatti looks like the Chiron, but is it the Chiron?

A heavily wrapped Bugatti Chiron-based prototype has been spotted at the Nurburgring, triggering alarm bells that this model could be none other than the limited edition Divo that Bugatti announced just last week. There are no indications that this test mule is, in fact, the Divo, but with little news on the front of other Chiron derivatives these days, it stands to reason that Bugatti wouldn’t send a prototype to the ‘Ring to do testing if it has no plans to do anything about it.

Trimming the fat on a four-wheeled heavyweight

The Bugatti Chiron exceeds at excess. The speed, the power, the price… any way you slice it, the Chiron is way over the top. However, despite this overarching emphasis on velocity, the Chiron was never a particularly agile vehicle, instead relying on its mammoth grip and high-tech AWD system to move the mass around an apex. Now, however, it looks like that might change, as the top bug is gearing up for a fresh limited-run edition that emphasizes cornering in a whole new way.
