Hotted-up take on the Chiron is coming soon, as Monterey Car Week inches closer.
Bugatti has given us another peek at the hotted-up, Chiron-based Divo ahead of its full reveal at Monterey Car Week in California.
The new Divo, which will be fully revealed on August 24, will be lighter and more handling-focused than the Chiron, with more downforce for "significantly better handling properties" and more g-forces at full noise. The standard car isn't exactly slow, so we're expecting the Divo will be an absolute animal.
Based on two teasers posted on Facebook, the Divo will have a look entirely of its own compared to the Chiron. Its OLED tail-lights have a three-dimensional look, almost like those of the Aston Martin Vulcan, while the flanks will be home to an aggressive-looking aero fin.
Just in case the brand's French heritage wasn't obvious, the new aero addenda will be adorned with the red, white and blue. Ettore would be happy, no doubt.
Power is expected to come from the Chiron's quad-turbo W16 engine, which makes 1103kW and 1600Nm in standard guise. There's talk the Divo could be treated to a slight power bump, although the difference between 1100kW and 1120kW is likely to be negligible from behind the wheel.
Expect to see a more pared-back interior in search of lighter weight, although a Bugatti stripper is still likely to be luxurious. There's no indication of how fast the car will go given a long enough runway, but we'd suggest – given its speed-sapping aerodynamics package – the Divo won't be as fast as the Chiron at the top end.
Just 40 examples of the Divo will be built, priced from around $8 million. It'll be launched on August 24, so stay tuned.
