Instead expect performance gains for the Diva to come from lighter body panels, increased downforce, more aggressive suspension and stickier tyres - your typical track day fare, if not your typical donor auto. To honour his feats on that twisty mountain course, Bugatti's Divo has lasered in on driving dynamics. Engineered to be a more dynamically focused model than the Chiron, Bugatti is promising the Divo will be a lighter, more agile and aerodynamically aggressive model that offers "significantly better handling properties" according to Molsheim. "New, strong design language" suggests its look will be notably distinct from that of the regular Chiron.
Bugatti hasn't revealed the vehicle yet, but confirms that Divo will be the first project undertaken by its newly resurrected coachbuilding division.
Set to be revealed at The Quail Motorsports Gathering later this summer, the Divo will add to the series of editions that starts with the standard, £2.5 million Chiron and continues to the more lightweight, hardcore Chiron Sport. "The Divo is made for corners", stated Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann in a company press release.
Quotable: "Happiness is not around the corner".
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.
Bugatti has teased the new Divo: a limited-run hypercar which, when launched, will be priced from €5 million.
