The aerodynamics of the version were intensively fine-tuned and the suspension and chassis settings were modified. As a end result, the Bugatti Divo is 35 kilograms (seventy seven lbs) lighter and has ninety kilograms (198 lbs) extra downforce than the same old Chiron. 
The lateral acceleration of the Divo has been boosted to 1.6 g. Its most velocity is constrained to 380 km/h (236 mph). The Divo can lap the Nardò dealing with circuit in southern Italy 8 seconds quicker than the Chiron. The collection will handiest include forty automobiles. Upon the begin of displays to chose clients, the strictly constrained small collection, with a internet unit rate of €5 million, bought out straight away.

"When I took up my role at Bugatti at the start of the yr, I quickly learnt that our clients and enthusiasts have been looking forward to a unique automobile which might inform a in addition tale for the emblem similarly to the Chiron," stated Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. "The Bugatti crew became additionally very keen to put in force a mission like this."

It became consequently determined to construct a notable sports activities automobile with a one-of-a-kind man or woman from the Chiron which might nevertheless be straight away recognizable as a Bugatti. With the Divo, Bugatti is likewise reviving its coachbuilding lifestyle. In its first few decades, the French luxurious emblem had vast achievement with our bodies constructed to its personal layout and mounted on current chassis.

"To date, a contemporary-day Bugatti has represented a really perfect stability among excessive overall performance, straight-line dynamics and pricey comfort. Within our possibilities, we've got shifted the stability withinside the case of the Divo in addition in the direction of lateral acceleration, agility and cornering," Winkelmann added. "The Divo is made for bends."

"The comments from our clients became overwhelming," the Bugatti President reports. "We confirmed the Divo to a small institution of decided on Chiron clients. All forty vehicles have been bought straight away - this became awesome affirmation for the Bugatti crew which had positioned a lot determination and ardour into the mission."

The supercar is known as after Albert Divo, a French racing motive force who became a two-time winner of the well-known Targa Florio race at the mountainous roads of Sicily with Bugatti withinside the past due Twenties.

The Bugatti Divo represents the contemporary-day interpretation of the emblem's coachbuilding lifestyle

"The contemporary-day interpretation of coachbuilding gave us engineers new freedom," says Stefan Ellrott, Head of Technical Development at Bugatti. "The step that we've got interested by the Divo in phrases of agility and excessive-overall performance cornering dynamics may be as compared with the general improvement from the Veyron to the Chiron."

A state-of-the-art aerodynamics programme makes for maximum automobile cooling and ninety kilograms extra downforce.

The aerodynamic residences of the Divo have been stepped forward with the aid of using a large amount of certain paintings. The the front cowl is prepared with air intakes which lessen the powerful cross-sectional vicinity of the automobile on the equal time as making sure stepped forward air glide on the the front and growing aerodynamic performance. An optimized "air curtain" makes for higher air glide over the the front and rear sections of the auto's facets.

The newly-designed, huge the front spoiler offers better downforce and publications extra air to the the front air inlets. The cooling machine consequently gets a better mass glide and usual cooling overall performance is stepped forward.

The brakes are cooled with the aid of using 4 unbiased air reassets on every facet of the automobile: air flows in from the excessive-strain vicinity above the the front bumper, the inlets at the the front wings, one inlet at the the front radiator and the diffusers in advance of the tyres. Vanes direct the bloodless air from those regions onto the brake discs. A warmth guard includes the recent air out thru the wheels. This way that the brakes do now no longer overheat and the tyre temperature is continually saved withinside the most useful range. This machine, that is already used at the Chiron, gets extra assist from the vacuum generated with the aid of using the air curtain at the tyres withinside the case of the Divo. In addition, the wheel arches are ventilated through slats at the wings.

The roof of the Bugatti Divo has been designed to shape a NACA air duct, a glide-optimized air inlet. In mixture with the eparticularly designed engine compartment cowl, this guarantees a completely excessive air mass glide to the engine compartment, gambling a key position in temperature control on this vicinity of the automobile.

The rear give up of the Bugatti Divo capabilities a brand new, height-adjustable rear spoiler which capabilities as an air brake whilst became forwards and is about to one-of-a-kind angles for the person riding modes. The rear spoiler has a width of 1.eighty three metres (72") and is consequently 23 percentage wider than at the Chiron. The wider spoiler improves performance and effects in better air brake overall performance in addition to appreciably extra downforce.

The downforce is likewise boosted with the aid of using the rear diffuser which has been totally redesigned for extra performance and contains 4 tailpipes.

The overall downforce generated is 456 kilograms, ninety kg extra than at the Chiron. New chassis and suspension settings in addition to weight loss make the Divo a celebrity performer on corners

The primary goal of chassis improvement paintings became to enhance cornering dynamics; the Bugatti Divo became to be sharper, extra agile and extra nimble.

For this purpose, the camber became increased. As a end result the most velocity of the Bugatti Divo is constrained to 380 km/h. In assessment to the Chiron, there's consequently no Top Speed mode. As regards lateral acceleration, the Divo reaches 1.6 g. These adjustments by myself make sure a perceptibly one-of-a-kind riding enjoy on winding roads.

The steerage and suspension were set to make sure extra direct reaction and appreciably sportier riding behaviour in all modes (EB, Autobahn and Handling).

The Bugatti Divo is 35 kilograms lighter than the Chiron. The weight loss is the end result of some of light-weight layout changes such as new light-weight wheels and a carbon fibre intercooler cowl. Weight became additionally stored with the aid of using the solving of the the front diffuser flaps, a discount in the quantity of insulation cloth used and the set up of a lighter sound machine. In order to lessen the weight, stowage booths at the valuable console and withinside the door trims have additionally been omitted.

The Bugatti Divo can consequently lap the Nardò dealing with circuit 8 seconds quicker than the Chiron.

New modern layout language underlines the internal values of the Divo. A new match of garments for a brand new man or woman

"The Divo is a in addition instance of our layout philosophy 'Form follows Performance'. In this case, the engineers and architects aimed to create a automobile specializing in cornering speeds and lateral dynamics," says Achim Anscheidt, Director of Design of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S., describing the layout language of the brand new Bugatti.

"The Divo mission became additionally a welcome possibility for our crew to feature a contemporary-day bankruptcy to the coachbuilding tale of Bugatti which were so a hit withinside the early years of the emblem."

"Our challenge became to expand a automobile which might appearance one-of-a-kind from the Chiron however nevertheless be straight away recognizable as a Bugatti," Anscheidt adds. "For us designers, this intended that the 3 key fashion factors of Bugatti needed to stay in vicinity: the horseshoe-fashioned the front grille, the standard Bugatti signature line alongside the perimeters of the automobile and the function fin that defines the longitudinal axis of the auto whilst considered from above, which became derived from the Type fifty seven Atlantic."

The layout crew persisted the evolution of the layout factors for the Divo consistent with the layout quick and reinterpreted the layout philosophy "Form follows Performance". The outer pores and skin of the Divo became designed in an uncompromising manner to emphasise lateral acceleration. The primary goal became to gain most useful aerodynamic and thermodynamic performance.

At the equal time, the Bugatti Divo represents a brand new styling technique which the layout crew has advanced mainly for a coachbuilt Bugatti and that is outstanding from the contemporary-day center merchandise of the emblem.

The slimmer facet line of the Divo enables make the automobile appearance decrease and longer. The new proportions permit a visible horizontal department of the frame, that is bolstered with the aid of using a unique color scheme. The top, extra fashionable segment is painted with a matt end in a silver color "Titanium Liquid Silver" advanced mainly for the Divo. This successfully underpins the sculptural, muscular shape of the auto. The lengthy domed regions with their easy surfaces alongside the C-pillar and the rear facet sections optically shift the motive force's cab forwards. This offers the Divo an exceedingly dynamic look even if the automobile is status nevertheless.

The decrease a part of the perimeters has extra of a functional, technical layout, reinforcing the auto's forceful look and giving it a assured stance at the road. This segment capabilities uncovered carbon fibre tinted in a petrol blue colour, "Divo Carbon", advanced mainly for this version.

An totally new structure became advanced for the the front of the auto. There are extra air inlets for brake cooling. The new, vertically orientated the front lighting fixtures with sunlight hours jogging mild at the periphery in every case deliver the Divo an look of extra width. With a mild starting that is handiest 35 millimetres (1 3/8") flat, the extraordinarily compact, light-weight LED headlights flow into a brand new technical dimension. A mild animation advanced mainly for the Divo underlines the special signature of the the front give up. The horizontal break up right into a decrease carbon and an top matt silver segment additionally makes the Divo appearance decrease and underlines the optical impact of width.

The NACA air inlet at the roof creates an optical reference to the air outlet withinside the centre of the the front cowl and publications the air in the direction of the rear spoiler. The truth that the valuable line runs from the the front over the roof to the rear spoiler isn't always handiest a memory of Bugatti's mythical beyond however additionally serves a function. This configuration prevents air eddies from forming over the automobile, developing turbulence at the rear spoiler.

One spotlight on the rear of the automobile is simply the brand new, particularly state-of-the-art three-D rear mild. This is genuinely a part of the rear grille, that is partially produced with the aid of using a three-D printing manner and has unique light-weight fins with lots of sizes. A overall of forty four of those fins mild up, forming the rear mild of the Divo. At the periphery, the fins end up wider, developing a extra extensive mild. Towards the centre of the automobile, they're narrower, ensuing in slow fading of the mild. The end result is a hanging look this means that that the Divo is likewise unmistakable from the rear.

The two-tone color scheme additionally intensifies the forceful impact created with the aid of using the rear. The fenders are painted in "Titanium Liquid Silver" with a matt end and are optically outstanding from the elements which manage airflow on the rear give up. Air shops, rear spoiler and diffuser have a carbon end.

"Divo Racing Blue", a shiny turquoise blue colour advanced mainly for the Divo, underlines the 3-dimensional man or woman of the 3 surfaces main to the air inlets and shops at the the front, facets and rear, developing dynamically contrasting results.

The technical man or woman of the color scheme and substances used for the outdoors is sustained withinside the indoors. A matt model of the specific excessive-gloss carbon fibre used at the outdoors is to be observed withinside the indoors.

The color results of the carbon tint and outdoors paintwork are pondered on a 1:1 foundation with the aid of using the dark "Divo Grey" petroleum tone of the Alcantara withinside the indoors, supplying a diffused assessment with the glass-blasted anodized gray surfaces of the metallic elements.

The special "Divo Racing Blue" is likewise used as an Alcantara leather-based tone withinside the indoors, wherein it performs a unique position with the aid of using supplying an optical break up withinside the indoors surfaces. This color is used nearly at some stage in the motive force's segment at the same time as it handiest offers decided on accents withinside the darker passenger's segment.

Another stylistic hyperlink among indoors and outdoors is created with the aid of using the door trims and seat regions, which function an embroidered 3-dimensional rhomboid shape with an algorithmic configuration, reinterpreting the shape of the grille and rear lighting fixtures.

Technical improvements withinside the indoors encompass the seats, which now no longer handiest function a brand new layout however provide extra lateral assist. The steerage wheel is partially protected with Alcantara and has large paddles outfitted firmly on each facets of the wheel. Thanks to large armrests and calf supports, the valuable console guarantees extra comfort.

Car named after French racing motive force and two-instances Targa Florio winner Albert Divo

Bugatti coachbuilding: manufacturing facility coachwork made in Molsheim

With the Divo, Bugatti is reviving its coachbuilding lifestyle. While Ettore Bugatti's automobiles of the Twenties represented light-weight layout and technical innovation, it became his son Jean who made the Bugatti our bodies of the Thirties into fashion icons in their time. To this day, Jean's creations encompass the golden technology of French coachbuilding. In their personal manner, father and son each contributed to the very unique fable of the Bugatti marque.

In the mid Twenties, Ettore Bugatti worried his son increasingly more withinside the enterprise of the organisation and it became Jean who advanced principles for Bugatti bodywork, first for the Type forty one Royale and, from 1926, additionally for the Type forty. Up to that point, two-seater and 4-seater sports activities convertibles and coupés were made with the aid of using coachbuilders together with Gangloff or Lavocat & Marsaud. In order to understand his thoughts, Jean engaged the offerings of gifted frame clothier Joseph Walter.

It became Walter who positioned Jean's thoughts into exercise and advanced the classical Bugatti coachbuilding lifestyle with the Grand Sport our bodies for Types forty and forty three thru to the Type fifty seven our bodies of the Thirties. For the Type fifty seven, numerous our bodies together with Stelvio, Aravis, Galibier, Ventoux or Atalante can be ordered as manufacturing facility options. The best-recognized coachbuilt creations from Bugatti have been simply the streamlined Type 50, the Type fifty five roadster and the Type 57SC Atlantic.
