Bugatti unveils iconic Type 35 with Divo hypercar

September 2, 2020 Off By autotimesnews

The press service of the French automaker has published a video showing the “family reunion” of the iconic Type 35 sports car, produced in the first half of the last century, as well as the modern Divo hypercar. The historic event took place at the Targa Florio race track.

When you talk about Bugatti and its long history, it’s hard not to talk about the Targa Florio. The Italian racetrack was considered to be the site of one of the most prestigious, but also one of the most difficult and dangerous endurance races in the world. The first Targa Florio race took place in 1906.

Targa Florio was close to the heart of the French automaker, especially for the legendary five straight wins in the aforementioned endurance race.

Bugatti first won the race in 1925 with the Type 35, and Albert Divo won the Type 35 endurance race in 1928 and a year later. This was the first and only time the automaker had won a race for five consecutive years.

This time Targa Florio again witnessed another historic Bugatti event – the “family reunion” between the modern Divo hypercar and the classic Type 35. By the way, the Divo hypercar was named after Albert Divo.

“These two important Bugatti-named models meet each other for the first time, and you can see this test in the video embedded above. Most importantly, for Bugatti it is an opportunity to look back on its rich history,” the press release said.

The first Divo hypercars for customers were already unveiled last month. Bugatti said the remaining 40 units will be delivered by the end of the first quarter of 2021. The price for each copy of the hypercar is one million dollars.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the network showed an incredible Bugatti Chiron with a fin. The artist Real Boris Boef has developed a virtual tuning project based on the Bugatti Chiron hypercar with a very expressive design. The author named his creation the Blade Runner.
