Bugatti Divo hypercar teased ahead of August reveal

Bugatti also lauds the car's "enormous downforce and G-forces".

As for the name, it might conjure up images of a certain 1970s-80s band, but the Divo is named after Albert Divo, a French racing driver who twice won the Targa Florio while piloting a Bugatti race machine. Also, its "dynamic character will be underlined by a new, strong design language", says Bugatti.

Quotable: "Happiness is not around the corner". It is the corner. However, Bugatti makes reference to reviving the coachbuilding tradition of its early years, so expect a unique appearance from the outside. In the first decades of its history, the French luxury brand had considerable success with bodies designed in-house under the leadership of Jean Bugatti and installed on existing chassis.

In an official statement, Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann that with the Divo, the brand aims to "thrill people throughout the world", and that it gives Bugatti the chance to "interpret the brand DNA in terms of agile, nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way". Bugatti will charge £4.42 million for each of the 40 Divos that will be made - a heavy premium over the other two models.

Bugatti is now getting ready to launch a limited edition version of their hypercar, called Chiron Divo, it will premiere at "The Quail - A Motorsports Gathering", in California, on August 24. Oh yes, and it's nearly massively expensive, with a starting price of approximately $5.8 million.
