The Pacific by Delahaye USA 最精致的复刻品

There are a few boutique car manufacturers but not all are capable of producing a vehicle that one can made to order and turn heads whilst on road. The Delahaye USA was named in tribute to Emil Delahaye, the famous automobile manufacturer in Tours, France in 1879. However this company in the United States is not connected to the original Delahaye GFA or The Delahaye Club Of France that a loyal group of Delahaye fans have registered. 

The Pacific by Delahaye USA is a stylized re-interpretation of Ralph Lauren’s famed 1937 Type 57S Bugatti Atlantic. The Pacific was a tribute and never an exact replica of Atlantic but with the intention to create the most beautiful Atlantic that was never built until today. The goal was to build a modern, stylized tribute to the 57S that still respected Jean Bugatti’s original version. 

古董车制造商不多,但并非所有人都能生产可以度身定制并在路上让人频频回头注目的汽车。Delahaye USA的名字是为了纪念1879年在法国图尔市制作汽车的著名汽车制造商Emil Delahaye。 不过这家来自美国的车厂和原产地的Delahaye GFA及Delahaye 官方车友俱乐部并没有任何关系。

这款The Pacific by Delahaye USA车型是Delahaye USA参照设计师Ralph Lauren最有名的藏车1937 Type 57S Bugatti Atlantic的车型重新诠释的一款车型。这是至今最精致的复刻品,也是现代风格的“The Pacific”向原始版“57S Bugatti Atlantic”的致敬。

The Show Stopper 艳惊四座

“The Divo can lap the Nardò handling circuit in southern Italy eight (8) seconds faster than the Chiron.”

Divo1 is powered by Bugatti’s iconic eight-litre W16 engine with a power output of 1,500 PS. The aerodynamics of the model has been intensively fine-tuned and the suspension and chassis settings have been modified.

As a result, the Divo is 35 kilograms (77 lbs) lighter and has 90 kilograms (198 lbs) more downforce than the standard Chiron2. The lateral acceleration of the Divo has been boosted to 1.6 g. Its maximum speed is limited to 380 km/h (236 mph).

Launched with a limited series of only 40 vehicles, a hefty price tag selling at €5 million each did not seem to deter any interest and were instantly sold out. 

Bugatti has recently world-premiered Divo1 its latest supercar at the The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering held at Monterey, California. Tuned for agility, nimbleness and optimum handling performance on winding roads, the French sports car is named after Albert Divo, a French racing driver who was a two-time winner of the famous Targa Florio race on the mountainous roads of Sicily with Bugatti in the late 1920s.

“Divo 在意大利南部 Nardò 环形测速赛道上飞驰,比 Chiron 快了8秒钟。”

法国著名汽车制造商布加迪(Bugatti)最近在加利福尼亚州蒙特里举行的 The Quail : A Motorsports Gathering 展现了全球首次亮相的新车型 Divo1。为了在蜿蜒曲折的道路上取得更敏捷,灵活和最佳的操控性能,这款超级跑车以法国赛车手 Albert Divo 名字命名。他曾在上世纪 1920 开着布加迪的赛车参加在西西里岛山区公路上举行的 Targa Florio 比赛,并夺得两次冠军。

Divo1 配置了布加迪标志性的 8 升 W16 发动机,输出功率为1,500 PS。这款超跑的空气动力学经过了大量微调,而悬架和底盘的全新设计改进了性能。

因此,除了重量减轻了 35 公斤(77 磅),比之前的 Chiron 2 标准具有 90 公斤(198 磅)的下压力,Divo 的横向加速提升至1.6 g.,最高速度则在 380 公里/小时(236 英里/小时)。

这款新超跑推出的限量版只有 40 辆,每辆售价 500 万欧元的高昂价格似乎无法阻挡爱车族的兴致,已经宣告售罄。
