Bugatti will build a new lighter, sharper and agile hypercar called the Divo, which will have a limited production run of 40 units.
Bugatti has just announced that they are working on a brand-new model which they have christened the Divo. The car is named after the French racing driver, Albert Divo, who won the Targa Florio at the mountainous circuit in Sicily for Bugatti twice in the late 1920s.
Only 40 examples of the Divo will be made. According to Bugatti, it will be lightweight, agile and with lots of aero trickery to make it achieve greater g-forces. The result will be a product with outstanding handling properties and a strong design language to accentuate its dynamic character.
Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., said, ‘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.’
Bugatti will also revive their long-lost tradition of coachbuilding with the Divo. It was an art form which the manufacturer was renowned for in the first twenty years of its existence under the leadership of Jean Bugatti.
The Divo will make its official debut on August 24, 2018, at The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering in California, USA, and will have a price of €5 million.
