Ever since Bugatti started selling Veyrons for over a million dollars back in 2005, the luxury sports car market has gone to new heights. While Koenigsegg and Pagani quickly learned that they can sell a car for as much as they wish, even Lamborghini managed to pull off a stunt that involved a trio of re-bodied Aventadors called the Venenos, priced at a cool $4 million five years ago.
Meanwhile, Bugatti’s Chirons sell like cold lemonade on a hot summer day. Wanting to spice things up a bit, they came up with a lighter, more handling-focused version called the Chiron Sport. CEO Stephan Winkelmann said he couldn’t claim this tweaked model as his idea, but he’s happy with the brand’s new, more corner-happy direction.
To follow up the Chiron’s success Bugatti will build a $6 Million, hypercar named Divo. Named after Albert Divo, the French racing driver who won the Targa Florio for Bugatti twice in the 1920s, Bugatti’s second model will be a lighter, higher downforce handling champion, limited to forty units, each priced at $5.85 million, plus taxes.
Best of all you don’t have to wait for it that much longer, since Bugatti will present the Divo on the 24th of August at “The Quail– A Motorsports Gathering“ in California.
