Bugatti Divo

Post

The 1,478-Horsepower Bugatti Divo Costs $5.8 Million
This is basically a Chiron, but 35 kilograms (77 lbs) lighter and has 90 kilograms (198 lbs) more downforce. Top Speed is also limited to 380 km/h (236 mph). Interestingly Buggati are using #BuiltforCorners :wink:

90kg more downforce... at what speed?

Looking at the press release they say this, but again, no mention of speed:

"The total downforce generated is 456 kilograms, 90 kg more than on the Chiron."

So it's a Chiron that lost it's top speed, barely gained any downforce and looks like Gemballa got their hands on it.

What a joke.

Meanwhile SRT Viper generate 1500kg of DF on 260 kmh...

*new "all examples pre-sold" hypercar thread*
*canned "would not buy" responses*

1.6 lat g claimed in press release. Pretty decent for a 4k (?) lbs luxo barge-ster. I suppose complaining about this car's features is like complaining a Rolex can't display emails or remind you when to pick up your dry cleaning.

This is what happens when Lamborghini's former CEO joins Bugatti. Remember Centenario or Veneno? They were more exotic versions of Aventador. Same goes for Divo

Because they're a unit of weight?

I like the crusade against imperial units.

I also like this car: I just can't stand Chiron's headlights (and a couple of other things...) and this car fixed it, even though such details don't look sooo special for a 5.8M car or elegant enough for a Bugatti.

Overall, this looks like an improvement over the Chiron to my eyes, just like the mentioned Centenario over the Aventador.

I'm sure you can divide by 2.2 if it bothers you that much :lol: Would you prefer they list curb weight in Newtons?
