Bugatti Divo Hypercar Beats The Chiron In Looks And Handling

New Bugatti Divo Hypercar, front angle

What has a Bugatti logo, is better looking and handles better than a Chiron? Divo!

That’s right, the Chiron has evolved before our very eyes from an indomitable straight line demon into a more well-rounded performance machine that Bugatti describes as being “made for bends.”

With maneuverability as its modus operandi, the Divo — so named after French fighter pilot and racing driver Albert Divo, who won the Sicilian Targa Florio back-to-back in 1928 and 1929 — sheds 77 pounds (37 kg) and puts down 198 pounds more downforce than the Chiron, improving lateral acceleration to 1.6 g.

Don’t be fooled by its lower electronically-limited top speed of 236 mph (380 km/h) — the Divo is a full second faster than the Chiron around the 3.85-mile (6.2 km), 16-turn Nardo handling circuit.

Also, while the cynics among us will be quick to call the Divo a Chiron with a body kit on — the two do share an 8-liter W16 engine and underlying chassis, after all — is there denying that it’s more aesthetically-pleasing than the Chiron, which looks stodgy and even conservative in comparison?

Only 40 examples of the Bugatti Divo will be made. And even with an insane price tag of €5 million, or US$5.8 million, every single one has already found a buyer.

This is one dream car you will never be able to own… in pristine condition.
