For those wondering if the upcoming Bugatti Divo is an extreme version of the Chiron splashed with a body kit, a new teaser clears things up. After more than a month of showing off the Divo logo stitched in Alcantara, OLED tail lights and side skirts, Bugatti has finally released a teaser which gives us a better idea of what to expect from the upcoming hypercar from an aesthetic standpoint.
The teaser shows a radical new silhouette for the upcoming Bugatti. The C shaped lines found on both sides of the Chiron are absent. Instead, there’s a bold body line running from the B-pillar to the front wheel arch. Billed as a track-oriented, handling focused machine, the Divo is expected to borrow a lot from the Vision GT – a track concept Bugatti presented a couple of years ago. A few Vision GT inspired elements can easily be made out from the new teaser. Like the large fixed rear-wing and a shark fin that stretches from the roof to the rear wing.
The Divo will utilize the same quad-turbo W16 engine used on the Chiron. The 8.0-liter unit will be combined with a racing transmission, reduced weight and extreme aerodynamics for improved performance on the track. The Chiron has 1,479 horsepower and can sprint to 60 mph in 2.5 seconds. The Bugatti Divo should be able to go faster. However, better acceleration and improved track performance will come at the cost of reduced top speed which should be something closer to 240 mph.
While we don’t see the “completely new form language”as promised by Bugatti executives, we will reserve judgement until we see Bugatti Divo at Pebble Beach.
