Right now, everyone is talking about how the record-breaking 300+ mile-per-hour run that the Bugatti Chiron just recently achieved. But that’s not the only exciting thing going on at Bugatti recently, as there’s also a successor to the Chiron being produced, called the Bugatti Divo. Only forty models will be produced, and they were all purchased on the day of announcement, but we want to take a look at some of the performance specs & premium features that set it apart from its predecessor.

Built to celebrate the brand’s 110th anniversary, the Bugatti Divo was designed to be reminiscent of the company’s foundation in coachbuilding. There were several design implements that not only enhance the incredible design of the vehicle but also its aerodynamics and performance. This includes things like the diffuser, front splitter and rear wing all being enlarged and the addition of a vented bonnet and wheel wells.
The Divo is powered by the same 8.0L quad-turbocharged W16 engine as the Chiron, as well as the same 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, but other changes enable it to offer enhanced performance. For instance, it has 198 pounds more downforce, a higher lateral acceleration of 1.6 g, and an increased wheel camber but a lower maximum speed of 236 miles per hour. It generates 1,500 horsepower at 7,600 rpm Max alongside 1,180 pound-feet of torque from 2,000 to 6,000 rpm. Although it gets from 0-60 in the same 2.4-second timeframe, its lap time on the Nardo handling circuit is 8 seconds faster thanks to the other performance changes.
We’re stoked about the Bugatti Divo and some of the other limited-edition creations Bugatti has been building, like the La Voiture Noire.
