Bugatti unveiled a new $5.8 million supercar and it's already sold out

Bugatti's new Divo sold out as soon as the Volkswagen Group brand began showing the 5 million-euros ($5.8 million) supercar to potential buyers.

According to Bugatti, all 40 Divos have already been purchased, which is not surprising. The name is also used for a colour featured on sections of the exterior, Divo Racing Blue, which looks remarkably like French Racing Blue.

It looks purposeful, aggressive and has enough cues from the Bugatti Vision Gran Tourismo - but all in a street legal, road going, 236 miles per hour or 380 kmph package! Bugatti says the Divo can hold 1.6 g on the skidpad and lap Italy's Nardo handling track 8 seconds quicker than the Chiron. "The Divo is made for bends". "Within our possibilities, we have shifted the balance in the case of the Divo further towards lateral acceleration, agility and cornering". The engine is the same, an 8.0-liter W16 that delivers a massive 1,479 horsepower, but the vehicle overall is lighter than the Chiron. According to Bugatti, the Divo can lap Italy's Nardò handling circuit eight seconds faster than the Chiron, before topping out at 236 miles per hour.

"The Divo has significantly higher performance in terms of lateral acceleration, agility and cornering". They - and fins on the sides - create an "air curtain" too, which improves air flow over and around the Divo. A wide front spoiler has extra vents, guiding more cooling air into the body.

Given the hefty price, Sony's Aibo isn't likely to be as widespread as other home devices, like Amazon Echo or Google Home. In addition, the robotic companion develops its own personality through everyday interactions, according to Sony.

To ensure the vehicle remains firmly planted on the ground, engineers made various alterations including a much wider rear wing and a redesigned rear diffuser to improve traction. At the rear, LED pin lighting creates a dramatic look below a height-adjustable rear wing that's 23 percent wider than the Chiron's. The air outlets, spoiler, and diffuser have a carbon-fiber finish.

The downforce is also boosted by the rear diffuser, which was designed for greater efficiency and accommodates four tailpipes. The top speed of the vehicle though is slower since the extra aero bits on the auto put a lot lot more stress on the tyres. The aggressive design embraced by Bugatti truly sets the Divo apart from the Chiron, which, arguably, looks tiresome in comparison now.

"The Divo is a further example of our design philosophy "Form follows Performance". As the Bugatti Divo is a track focused auto, it is of course lighter than the Chiron Sport. "This meant that the three key style elements of Bugatti had to remain in place: the horseshoe-shaped front grille, the typical Bugatti signature line along the sides of the vehicle and the characteristic fin that defines the longitudinal axis of the auto when viewed from above". It's named after Albert Divo, the French racing driver who - at the wheel of a Bugatti Type 35 - twice won the Targa Florio race, in 1928 and 1929.
