A shot showing embroidered branding for the auto reveals none of the performance-boosting revisions over the Chiron, but the hashtag "Built for corners" suggests a set-up more suited to track driving than outright speed.

Bugatti has confirmed that a track-focused vehicle based on its Chiron hypercar, named Divo, is on the way.

Bugatti is working on a new model, the Bugatti Divo, named after Albert Divo, the French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio race on a mountainous circuit in Sicily for Bugatti twice in the late 1920s. Engineered to be a more dynamically focused model than the Chiron, Bugatti is promising the Divo will be a lighter, more agile and aerodynamically aggressive model that offers "significantly better handling properties" according to Molsheim.


Because despite the promise of "strong design language" and a commitment to "thrill people throughout the world", Bugatti hasn't yet shown any hint of what a Chiron Il Divo might look like.

The Divo will be fully revealed on 24 August at California's Quail motorsports meet, and you will need to be fully on board for the ride: just 40 are being built, and each one is €5m each. "The Divo is made for corners", says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S. However, Bugatti makes reference to reviving the coachbuilding tradition of its early years, so expect a unique appearance from the outside.

Quotable: "Happiness is not around the corner".
