The Bugatti Divo is a mid-engine track-focused sports car developed and manufactured by Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. The car named after French racing driver Albert Divo, who raced for Bugatti in the 1920s, winning the Targa Florio race twice.
The Divo is a more exotic-looking and exclusive version of the Bugatti Chiron hypercar.
The Divo’s enhancements over the Chiron include an upgraded suspension set-up, significant weight-saving and a study in aerodynamics.
The Chiron has a higher top speed, not that a capped 236mph of the Divo is slow. Still, the lower speed is necessary due to the incredible downforce and massive aerodynamics. It contributes to a car that can handle like none other, making corner-taking an out-of-world experience.
The gravity teasing is confirmed by Bugatti, claiming the Divo beat the Chiron around the Nardo handling circuit by an unbelievable eight seconds.
Further proof of its acceleration prowess, on 11 Oct 2022 at the Yas Marina Drag Strip in Abu Dhabi, the Bugatti Divo set a new 1/4 mile world record for the quickest internal combustion-engine production cars that evening. It crossed the line in 9.27 seconds at 154.52 mph.
