The French brand Bugatti has published photos from the field tests of the Divo hypercar in the desert. Before the start of small-scale production, and the circulation of coupe will not exceed 40 copies, I check it for resistance to extremely high temperatures.

Behind the wheel of Bugatti Divo – Julia Lemke, development engineer. Its task is to test the onboard electronics of a hypercar in desert conditions, when the temperature rises above 40 degrees Celsius, and the car moves at a speed of about 250 kilometers per hour. And so for several hours.

Bugatti Divo – more “driver” and extreme version of Chiron. The hypercar has a slightly different design, developed aerodynamic “plumage”, as well as a modified chassis. So, Divo generates 90 kilograms more downforce than Chiron – 456 kilograms. The amount of lateral overload when cornering can reach 1.6 g (for Chiron this figure is 1.5 g). The mass of the hypercar is 35 kilograms less than the original model.

Under the hood – an eight-liter W16 engine with four turbochargers, which gives 1500 horsepower and 1600 Nm of torque. Acceleration to 100 km/h of the car takes 2.4 seconds, and the maximum speed is 380 kilometers per hour.
