In California, during Monterey Car Week, Bugatti unveiled its exclusive new hypercar, the Divo.
The Divo is an evolution of the Chiron, trimmed and redesigned for the track even though they share the same platform and powertrain.
The Divo’s lines are sharper while Chiron wearing less aggressive sheet metal. To Divo designers added unique headlights, a revised lower front fascia, a new hood, beefier wing, different taillights, and different side skirts. The two cars share the same interior except for the seats and a few other small details.
Divo has the same quad-turbocharged 8.0-liter W16 engine producing the same 1,500 horsepower (1,118 kilowatts). The W16 powertrain is powerful enough. The Divo is eight seconds faster around the Nardo circuit than the Chiron.
Engineers reduced weight by 77 pounds (34 kilograms). It still tips the scales at 4,321 pounds (1960 kilograms).
When it comes about the speed the Divo hits 62 miles per hour (100 kilometers per hour) in 2.4 seconds with a top speed of 236 mph (379 kph). That’s well below the Chiron’s top see of 261 mph (420 kph).
