Five million euros nearly one hundred and eighty million pesos. It is a chilling figure, unfeasible for most mortals, but not for some who can invest it when they think about renewing their collection of cars.
This is what the Bugatti Divo is worth, the new jewel of the brand of French origin the stock of 40 units sold out before it was publicly presented. He did it a few hours ago in Pebble Beach, USA.
The Divo is developed from Chiron, another brutal super sports car from Bugatti. With him shares the engine 8.0 liters of sixteen cylinders in W position and quadruple turbo that delivers maximum power 1,500 CV.
His name is a tribute to the pilot who twice won the Targa Florio in the 1920s with Bugatti, Albert Eugène Diwo. That is why he focuses on track performance.
It is slower in the final speed (380 km / h) with respect to the Chiron (418 km / h) and Veyron (407 km / h), but Bugatti ensures that it is eight seconds faster that the Chiron and three that the Chiron Sport in the Italian layout of Nardó.
"It is made for the curves", said the head of Bugatti, Stephan Winkelmann, during his presentation. Therefore, he approved a 1.83 meter wide spoiler that achieves an aerodynamic load of 456 kg (90 kg more than the Chiron) and can withstand a lateral capacity of up to 1.6 G.
It also reduces its weight by 35 kg compared to Chiron and 17, compared with Chiron Sport. promises a "perfected" four-wheel drive system with a paired vector control system. And it improves the automatic box of double clutch and seven speeds, the brakes and the cooling of the engine.
