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

The name Divo is also derived from Bugatti's past, named in honour of French racing driver Albert Divo, a two-time victor of the Targa Florio in the 1920s.

Bugatti has confirmed that it is working on a new model called the Divo, which the French automaker promises will be "light and nimble" and "boast enormous downforce and g-forces". The result will be outstanding handling properties and the dynamic character of the vehicle will be underlined by a new, strong design language.

The Divo will have a distinctive new design, says Bugatti, reflecting its more acute dynamic focus and higher aerodynamic output, alluding to the fact that the Divo is likely to look quite different to the Chiron.

Considering it's expected to share the Chiron's 8.0-litre quad-turbo W16 engine, outright performance shouldn't be lacking though.

Separately, doubts about Trump's commitment to European security have pushed EU leaders to boost defense cooperation. He said many countries were "nowhere close" to their commitment to spend two percent of GDP own defence.

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.

"Happiness is not around the corner". The Divo is made for corners.

In an official statement, Bugatti president Stephan Winkelmann that with the Divo, the brand aims to "thrill people throughout the world", and that it gives Bugatti the chance to "interpret the brand DNA in terms of agile, nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way".

Bugatti has teased the new Divo: a limited-run hypercar which, when launched, will be priced from €5 million.
