Bugatti to launch a limited edition model called Divo – only 40 units


According to news releases, Bugatti is working on a new “strictly limited-edition model” called the Bugatti Divo; inspired by Albert Divo, the French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio in Sicily twice with Bugatti in the late 1920s.

The Divo, which will revive Bugatti’s coach-building tradition, will be light and nimble with “enormous downforce” and high G-forces. It will also feature a newer and stronger design language.

“Happiness is not around the corner. It is the corner. The Divo is made for corners,” says President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., Stephan Winkelmann.

“With the Divo, we want to thrill people throughout the world,” the Bugatti President continues. “With this project, the Bugatti team has an opportunity to interpret the brand DNA in terms of agile, nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way”, he added.

Only 40 units of the Bugatti Divo will ever be made and will retail for a net price of 5 million Euros (approx. RM 23 million before tax). The Divo will be unveiled this August in California, USA.
