  • Bugatti Divo

    Bugatti does things on a grand scale. Since 2005, the French automaker has shoehorned a massive 8.0-liter, quad-turbocharged W-16 engine into the rear end of its supercars. The latest and greatest machine to use this engine is the Divo hypercar, which is based on the Chiron. That duo might be the last cars to make use of this massive, mighty power plant. The realities of stricter emissions standards around the world will cause Bugatti to look in a new direction eventually, and Volkswagen's ultra-luxury brand won't build a new version of the W-16. That's according to a Monday report from...
