Thought the Bugatti Chiron Sport was extreme? The maker of some of the fastest cars in the world has something even more limited and hardcore up its sleeve – the Bugatti Divo has been teased and will make its debut on August 24 in California.

The new model is named after Albert Divo (pic below), the French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio race on a mountainous circuit in Sicily for Bugatti twice in the late 1920s. Bugatti says that the Divo will be “light and nimble and will boast enormous downforce and g-forces.”

The resulting hypercar will have outstanding handling properties and the dynamic character of the car will be underlined by a new, strong design language, the French company added. “Happiness is not around the corner. It is the corner. The Divo is made for corners,” says Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann.

“With the Divo, we want to thrill people throughout the world. 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,” he added.

With the Divo, Bugatti is reviving its coachbuilding tradition. 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.

According to Autocar, the Divo is expected to maintain the Chiron’s 1,500 PS and 1,600 Nm figures from a 8.0 litre quad-turbo W16 engine, like the Chiron Sport, but will incorporate weight reduction measures, downforce-enhancing bodywork, upgraded suspension and other tweaks to improve handling.

Not any rich man can have one though, with only 40 units planned. The nett price for one is five million euros (RM23.6 million). Just be content with the RM12.5 million Chiron Sport, OK?
