Bugattis Old and New Flock in Croatia to meet exotic cars, Divo gets the spotlight
There are so many supercar gatherings that it’s hard to keep track of, but oil enthusiasts should at least remember one name: Supercar Owners Circle or SOC for short. Founded in 2014, this is an exclusive group of premium vehicle owners who meet once a year to enjoy their precious rides.
Leading the pack of customer-owned Chiron, Chiron Sport and 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse was the Divo, which marked the brand’s return to its bodywork roots, with the idea of chairman Stephan Winkelmann. The hypercar left production for good two months ago, with the last copy shipped to its owner in Europe, in a breathtaking hue reminiscent of the last Bugatti Le Mans factory racer.
A Pure Sport Chiron joined the parade, with automaker test driver and former racing legend Andy Wallace at the wheel. It is the most dynamic version of the Chiron ever built, boasting high downforce and using the legendary 8.0-liter quad-turbo W16 engine that develops a whopping 1,500 hp (1,479 hp). HP / 1 103 kW) and 1,600 Nm (1,180 lb-ft) of torque. Although it is very luxurious and comfortable, it can reach 100 km / h (62 mph) faster than its full name, in 2.3 seconds.
Other exotic supercars, built in different eras, took part in the event. In the images published by Bugatti and shared in the gallery above, you can see some of the Adriatic coast bearing the signature of Lamborghini, Ferrari, Koenigsegg, Pagani and McLaren, amid car enthusiasts of all ages.
