Bugatti to launch limited-edition Chiron Divo

Bugatti Divo announced – a more dynamic €5m Bugatti hypercar

Although it is unknown what Bugatti did to the Chiron to turn it into the Divo, but words such as "lightweight and agility, higher downforce and greater g-forces" have also been used in the short press release.

With the Divo, Bugatti is reviving its coachbuilding tradition. "New, strong design language" suggests its look will be notably distinct from that of the regular Chiron.

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.

Quotable: "Happiness is not around the corner".

J.B. Smoove Joins 'Spider-Man: Far From Home' Cast
With Tom Holland returning as Spider-Man himself and Jake Gyllenhaal predicted to become bubble-helmeted villain Mysterio , J.B. While Smoove's particular role has been unconfirmed by Sony, Deadline adds that it's expected to be a "lead in the ensemble".

The Divo is expected to follow the Sport in getting no alterations to Bugatti's 1479bhp quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16, but lightweighting measures, downforce-boosting bodywork, upgraded suspension and other corner-friendly mechanical tweaks are confirmed. "The Divo is made for corners", said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti. Indeed, Bugatti reminds us that in its early days, it regularly housed existing chassis over new bodies designed in-house under Jean Bugatti's tenure.

Bugatti has teased the new Divo: a limited-run hypercar which, when launched, will be priced from €5 million.

The Divo is being made in a limited series of only 40 vehicles. Oh yes, and it's nearly massively expensive, with a starting price of approximately $5.8 million. Bugatti plans to unveil the Divo as a world premiere at 11:20 a.m.
