Thanks for sharing.
My pleasure, it seems like there are actually two Chirons testing. Perhaps they are testing the lightweight modifications or the 'racing' transmission
Yes, it is possible, but the gear changes don't seem different.

Bugatti is working on a new model, the Bugatti Divo, named after Albert Divo, the French racing driver who won the famous Targa Florio race on a mountainous circuit in Sicily for Bugatti twice in the late 1920s. Based on the requirements for such a race, the Bugatti Divo will be light and nimble and will boast enormous downforce and g-forces. The result will be outstanding handling properties and the dynamic character of the car will be underlined by a new, strong design language.
“Happiness is not around the corner. It is the corner. The Divo is made for corners,” says Stephan Winkelmann, President of Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S.
“With the Divo, we want to thrill people throughout the world,” the Bugatti President continues. “With this project, the Bugatti team has an opportunity to interpret the brand DNA in terms of agile, nimble handling in a significantly more performance-oriented way.”
With the Divo, Bugatti is reviving its coachbuilding tradition. In the first decades of its history, the French luxury brand had considerable success with bodies designed in-house under the leadership of Jean Bugatti and installed on existing chassis.
The Divo is being made in a limited series of only 40 vehicles. The net price is €5 million. Bugatti plans to unveil the Divo as a world premiere at 11:20 a.m. (local time) on 24 August 2018 on the lawn at the renowned event “The Quail – A Motorsports Gathering“ in California, USA.
I will say, I'm totally not enthralled with these Multi-million $ cars. For $6.0MM a personally can live more than well for their entire life. No amount of performance is worth that, not to mention it's a street car that's no quicker on public roads than my $60,000 Camaro. What a waste. Kseggs, Huayra BC, this, it's all gotten lost. No point in even lusting after them.
And you can just get a print of the Mona Lisa.
Missing the point entirely.
Not missing the point. I wouldn’t pay $200mm for the Mona Lisa either. No matter how big my bank account was. At some point it’s all ridiculous.
We're all Devo.
we live in a gilded age. whether or not that's a good thing is up to you.
Wow another Hypercar..to one up another Hypercar ......for Cars and Coffee....shame, all this great technology in one vehicle only to have most sacked away in a secret garage....barely to ever see the road once more...until it gets sold again
BEAT ME TO IT!!!
The car sounds like ****.
Duty now for the future, spud.

The Targa Florio race held annually round Sicily was dominated by Bugatti for ﬁve years from the mid 1920s. It was certainly one of the most gruelling of all long distance races.

I wonder how light this thing will be. I’m assuming 1800kg which is about 500 kg heavier than a Senna.

These videos haven’t yet provided any details about the car, just more of the same. I don’t understand the point.
