To honour his feats on that twisty mountain course, Bugatti's Divo has lasered in on driving dynamics. The body could be significantly different, however, in keeping with Bugatti's promise that the auto has been honed to go around corners at physics-defying speed.
We're told the new auto - using the Chiron's chassis and 1,479bhp powertrain - will "be light and nimble and will boast enormous downforce and g-forces".
Bugatti's mention of its heritage in coachbuilding also points toward this new model sharing its basic chassis and powertrain with the Chiron.
The Divo is due to be unveiled at "The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering" in Monterey, California on 24 August.
The Divo is expected to follow the Sport in getting no alterations to Bugatti's 1479bhp quad-turbo 8.0-litre W16, but lightweighting measures, downforce-boosting bodywork, upgraded suspension and other corner-friendly mechanical tweaks are confirmed. The pair is joined by Albert Divo (the new car's namesake) who won the Targa Florio twice in Bugattis.
It's likely that the Divo will complete the brand's line-up for the foreseeable future, given that it will be the third variant launched in two years.
The Divo is being made in a limited series of only 40 vehicles.
"Happiness is not around the corner".
Bugatti has announced its plans to build a new, limited-number hypercar called the Divo. "The Divo is made for corners", said Stephan Winkelmann, president of Bugatti.
